This Saturday in Philadelphia, Ring of Honor (ROH) is kicking off a celebration of 12 years in the pro wrestling game with their first free, interactive convention.
In what sounds like a miniature version of a WWE Axxess or TNA InterAction event - you can pose in the entrance way to your favorite ROH stars music, for example - the Sinclair Broadcasting owned company will be hosting question & answer and autograph signing sessions with wrestlers.
Admission is free, but autographs aren't (this is how many of these guys and gals make their living, and the abililty to do so in addition to being affiliated with or contracted to the largest indy is part of the appeal of working for ROH), and you can get a pass that gets you access to everybody without individual fees with a VIP wristband for $59.99.
The most intriguing thing for the casual ROH fan is the "huge announcement" they are teasing. For a company that has recently brought AJ Styles and Chris Hero back into the fold, it should be interesting to see what ROH has up their sleeves next.
Here's the full release from the company, which you can also find on their website (along with schedule of event and who will be there for the signing and Q&As) here:
