Okay, even we didn’t see this one coming…

Please welcome to Retro Con 2021, professional wrestler (and toy aficionado) Matt Cardona!

Growing up in Long Island New York, Matt’s childhood dream was becoming a pro wrestler. He fulfilled that dream in 2006 by signing with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), winning numerous championships in his 14 years there. His biggest in-ring achievement coming at WrestleMania 32, where in front of over 101,000 fans in AT&T Stadium, Matt won a ladder match to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship! He would stay with the WWE until 2020, and is now currently signed with IMPACT! Wrestling.

Matt is also a hardcore collector! In 2018, he started The Major Wrestling Figure Podcast with friend Brian Myers. The weekly podcast about their love of action figures has led into live shows, toy hunts, a YouTube channel, and their very own toy line. In addition to wrestling action figures, Matt also collects Star Wars, TMNT, Ghostbusters, Disney characters, and a whole lot more!

Matt Cardona will be appearing at Retro Con on SATURDAY ONLY! (signing window to be determined soon).

A huge thanks to the Gnome Club for contacting us and sponsoring Matt’s appearance at the show!!

Meet Wrestling Legend Hacksaw Jim Duggan at Retro Con 2019!

September 3, 2019 Leave a comment

 

“HOOO!!!” We’re pleased to announce a late addition to our guest list: Wrestling icon “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan!

A true red-blooded American, this tough but lovable big guy always marched to the ring with a 2×4 slung over his shoulder and a red white & blue flag gripped tightly in his hand. Duggan would always get the crowd behind him by inspiring massive chants of “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” that would shake the rafters and intimidate his opponents. On the scene for four decades, Hacksaw is one of the most recognizable superstars in the wrestling world. He was the winner of the WWF’s very first Royal Rumble in 1988, won the WCW’s United States Championship in 1994, and was inducted into the WWE’s Hall of Fame in 2011!

Hacksaw Jim Duggan will be at Retro Con both Saturday and Sunday. You can find him and all of our guests in the guest section in back of the hall!
