RANDY SAVAGE TO BE HONORED NEXT MONTH, ROSS TALKS ROH, BADD COMPANY REUNION, SNUKA-WRESTLECON AND MORE NEWS

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross' latest blog on his official website at www.JRsBarBQ.com looks at the ROH Best in the World PPV, the 14th anniversary of John Cena's WWE run, Brock Lesnar, the "6:05" documentary and more.  If you get the chance, be sure to grab some of JR's BBQ products.  I used them for a BBQ over the weekend and they were, as always, great.  Mike Tenay is the latest guest on Ross' podcast.

Ross will be performing his one man show as part of the The 2016 Mid-Atlantic Legends Fanfest, which is always an awesome weekend.  For details on that, visit www.NWALegends.com.

The New York Daily News picked up a story on Jimmy Snuka being booked to sign at Wrestlecon next year over Wrestlemania 33 weekend in Orlando, Florida.  Snuka is now staying in Florida, so if that remains the case by then, the show is local to him.  I believe he is being brought in by a vendor, not the event itself.

Randy Savage will become the first person inducted into the Ilio DiPaolo Legends of the Aud Hall of Fame in Buffalo, NY on 7/23 with his brother, Lanny Poffo on hand to accept the honor.  The induction will be part of a 20th anniversary show celebrating the original "Wrestling Legends of the Aud" in 1996, which featured a ton of WCW names of the era and wrestling legends, helping to raise over $100,000 for Children's Hospital and the DiPaolo Scholarship Fund as well as pay tribute to the late Ilio Dipalo.   Scheduled to appear on the 7/23 event are Eric Bischoff, Shane Douglas, The Nasty Boys, Jimmy Hart, Ethan Page and more.   For ticket information, visit buffaloriverworks.com.

The first announced guests for the October Legends of the Ring convention are Cody and Brandi Rhodes.  For details, visit www.Legendsofthering.com.

The Arizona Daily Sun featured a profile of Bill Filsinger, who created the "Champions of the Galaxy" wrestling card game, which is still going strong, at this link.

Former AWA World Tag Team champions Paul Diamond and Pat Tanaka, Badd Company, will be reuniting this November at the Big Event in Queens, NY.

The Naturals vs. America's Most Wanted is set for the 7/9 USA Championship Wrestling event in Gladeville, TN.  Thanks to Jared Cheeseman.
