MID-ATLANTIC FANFEST

Charlotte, NC
January 31 - February 1, 2004

During SuperBowl Weekend 2004, over a thousand fans converged on the University Place Hilton in Charlotte to relive the wrestling history of Jim Crockett Promotions as well as to meet dozens of the legendary figures who were at the forefront of JCP in its prime. Ricky Steamboat, Dusty Rhodes, the Rock 'n' Roll Express, Jim Cornette, Bobby Eaton, the Fantastics, the Masked Superstar, Jimmy Valiant, Ole Anderson, David Crockett, Bob Caudle, Magnum TA, Tully Blanchard, JJ Dillon, Arn Anderson, Greg Valentine, Buddy Landel, Les Thatcher, Tony Atlas, Dory Funk Jr., and George South were just some of the many big names that appeared over the course of the weekend.

These are my own personal photographs from the event. While it was obviously a tribute to JCP and not the WWE, the convention itself paid homage to pro wrestling as a whole so I thought it suitable to include these on the site.

Included in these are photos from the Ole Anderson and Jim Cornette late night Q&A sessions. Both are available on VHS from RFVideo.com and are worth the cost.
