Dusty Rhodes To Be Honored Next Week In Charlotte;
Magnum T.A. To Induct His Mentor Into Hall Of Heroes!


Dusty Rhodes!When Dusty Rhodes passed away a little over a year ago, he left behind an iconic legacy that will last forever. The "son of a plumber" from Austin, Texas, "The American Dream" was a world-traveler and a huge box office attraction everywhere he went. Next week in Charlotte, he will be inducted into the Hall of Heroes "Class of 2016."

Magnum T.A. will be on hand to posthumously honor his mentor, with Rhodes' wife and daughter here to participate as well.

The ninth annual Hall of Heroes dinner and awards ceremony Friday night, August 5, is part of the huge, 4-day NWALegends.com Fanfest Weekend at the beautiful lakeside Hilton University Place hotel August 4-7.

In additon to Rhodes, other members of the "Class of 2016" to be honored here include The Road Warriors and Paul Ellering, "The Perfect 10" Baby Doll, "Boogie Woogie Man" Jimmy Valiant, and the Mid-Atlantic Gateway Boys Dick Bourne and David Chappell.

"Hurricane" Shane Helms will host the awards ceremony. Many, many wrestling greats past, present and future will be seated among the fans - at least one wrestler per table - for an incredible buffet dinner, followed by the awards presentations. It's a remarkable experience!

Jim Ross Memories Will Abound in Charlotte at Fanfest

Jim Ross!By David Chappell
Mid-Atlantic Gateway


It was with great delight that I learned recently that announcer extraordinaire Jim Ross will be returning to next week’s NWALegends.com Fanfest Weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina running from August 4-7. "Good Ol’ J.R." is scheduled to host "RINGSIDE with Jim Ross" on opening night, and will be presiding over the first-ever "Breakfast of Champions Roast" of the indelible Ole Anderson on Fanfest’s closing day. In between, Jim will be participating in autograph and photo opportunity sessions, including can’t miss photo ops with fellow legendary announcers Bob Caudle and Tony Schiavone.

It is hard to imagine any professional wrestling fan that has not been touched at some point by the voice of Jim Ross. Jim has worn many a hat in the wrestling business, but let’s just talk about Jim Ross the broadcaster now. From Mid-South/UWF and Jim Crockett Promotions/NWA in the 1980’s to WCW, Smoky Mountain and the WWF in the 1990’s segueing to his legendary WWE announcing in the 2000’s that spanned all the way to 2013 and now currently has him calling the action for New Japan Pro Wrestling, Ross’ voice has been synonymous with professional wrestling.

Former Mrs. Steve Austin To Make Rare Appearance Here!

Lady Blossom!Our next NWALegends.com Fanfest Weekend guest will be making her first-ever appearance since leaving wrestling in the early-1990s.

Jeanie Clarke is a long-time wrestling valet, most famous for her appearances on World Class Championship Wrestling, the USWA and WCW, where she performed under the name Lady Blossom.

A native of Southend-on-Sea, Jeanie was discovered in 1978 by British wrestling great Chris Adams and was soon asked to become his valet.

Following a break from the business in the early 1980s to pursue a new life in the United States, she was approached by promoter Jerry Jarrett to return as a manager, where she was paired with a rookie sensation called ‘Stunning’ Steve Austin.

Their partnership gained national attention due to a wild feud between Austin and Chris Adams, who initially trained Steve. Success followed and this led to a her most famous tenure with WCW, before Clarke decided to retire to focus on family life.

Jeanie and Steve married in 1993, and she famously came up with the ‘Stone Cold’ moniker for Austin, developing an edgy character which allowed his popularity to soar to heights previously unseen within the pro wrestling industry.

She remained close to the business during the boom period of the WWF ‘Attitude Era’ before returning to the UK in 2003.

Today, Jeanie has just released her autobiography "Through The Shattered Glass," which finally reveals her incredible life story. The book will be available for purchase here.

She is very much looking forward to reconnecting with her fans at this very rare public appearance in Charlotte. She'll be appearing throughout the weekend, signing autographs, taking photos with fans, and sitting down for her first-ever Q&A!

Anderson, Schiavone Confirm Fanfest Appearances!

Arn Anderson!Arn Anderson and Tony Schiavone have confirmed their appearances at next month's NWALegends.com Fanfest Weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina August 4-7.

"Charlotte is my home," said Anderson, a WWE Hall-of-Famer and a 2014 inductee into our Hall of Heroes. "Fanfest folks are like my family. I can't wait to see everyone and have a chance to catch up on old times. There are so many familiar faces. It really is like family. I can't wait for the reunion!"

Anderson will be signing autographs and taking photos with fans on Saturday, August 6.

Schiavone will be making his first-ever fanfest appearance. "I've heard a lot about the NWA reunions in Charlotte over the years. My summertime duties as the radio voice of the Gwinnett Braves (the Triple A affiliate of baseball's Atlanta Braves,) keeps me pretty busy, but this year, I'm going out of my way to make sure I'm at fanfest. I've heard so much about it. I can't wait to experience it for myself!"
