2017 WWE® Hall of Fame Inductee Kurt Angle™, Becky Lynch™ To Attend Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland

WWE® Superstars Kurt Angle™ and Becky Lynch™ will appear at Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland next month at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland. Both will greet fans, pose for photo ops, sign autographs and conduct separate interactive Q&A sessions during their visits.

Lynch will attend between 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 17, while Angle will be on hand from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, March 19.

A 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist and one of the most celebrated Superstars in WWE history, Kurt Angle made his WWE debut in 1999. Over the course of his illustrious career, he won every major Championship in WWE as well as the WCW® Championship and WWE King of The Ring®. Angle had memorable rivalries with WWE legends such as "Stone Cold" Steve Austin®, The Rock® and The Undertaker®.

A fiery redhead from Dublin, Ireland, Lynch is ready to fight anyone in her path. Trained for the squared circle at the age of 15, Lynch travelled the world perfecting her craft before joining NXT in 2014. While proving she could hold her own in the squared circle, Becky forged various friendships during her time at NXT, including one with Bayley and another with Sasha Banks as part of Team B.A.E. (Best at Everything). Eventually, Becky shocked the WWE Universe when she joined WWE’s roster as part of the “Divas Revolution” – a member of Team P.C.B. (with Charlotte and Paige).

The two join the all-star guest list which includes Gene Simmons (Lead Singer, KISS, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels"), Michael C. Hall ("Dexter," "Six Feet Under"), Millie Bobby Brown ("Stranger Things"), Jennifer Carpenter ("Dexter," "The Exorcism of Emily Rose") and Loren Lester and Kevin Conroy of "Batman: The Animated Series". Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) continues its 2017 schedule with its third visit to the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, March 17-19.

Wizard World Comic Con events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop-fi, pop culture, movies, graphic novels, cosplay, comics, television, sci-fi, toys, video gaming, gaming, original art, collectibles, contests and more. The second event scheduled on the 2017 Wizard World calendar, Cleveland show hours are Friday, March 17, 5-10 p.m.; Saturday, March 18, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, March 19, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
