If you're a collector who's been to big wrestling conventions in the past, then you may have been disappointed in the carny game that was WrestleCon this year in Philadelphia. Certain promoters, "up-charging" on items, and if you brought something they deemed, "rare," you were paying for it! These promoters had advertised prices on wrestlecon.comExamples:Tony Hunter Promotions w/ The Hardy Boyz wanted an extra $40 because we brought a early Matt Hardy Series 2 EliteClub Hollywood Promotions advertised Honky Tonk Man as $90 on his new Legends elite, but if you went to WrestleCon, he was $125 and NO PHOTO!Gimmicked Promotions with The Godfather, this promotion advertised The Godfather as $50/50/100. On of our friends had the new Kama Legends Elite, he was charged $70. Twenty minutes later, our host with the SAME figure they wanted $100!These were just a few promoters pulling bad moves, we've been promoters with Ultimo Dragon, Sonny Onoo, Karrion Kross, Scarlett, and The Iinspiartion and NOT ONCE ever pulled what this carny show pulled. As we said, The Promoters Put The Con in WrestleCon!Support this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:
