My childhood peaked when I saw Stone Cold Steve Austin give Booker T one hell of a beatdown in a grocery store in Bakersfield, California. Before World Wrestling Federation (WWF) became World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) I was lucky enough to be in that audience for the live taping of this SmackDown episode. It was my version of seeing the Boston Red Sox beat the curse of the Bambino in 2004 or when the U.S. hockey beat Russia in 1980. It was my miracle in Bakersfield. For those who remember these wonderful times in professional wrestling, get ready to dig this, sucka: former WWE and World Championship Wrestling professional wrestler Booker T will be coming to Eugene Comic Con, aka EUCON. Now, some people might remember how Booker T was a no-show last year — I sure do — but what are the chances that he’ll do that again? And if he does no-show, the comic con has some sort of consolation prizes: Bruce Campbell (who was Ash in the Evil Dead series), Jason Mewes (Jay from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, etc.), Simone Missick (from Marvel’s Luke Cage) and more.
EUCON runs 10 am to 7 pm Saturday, Nov. 10, and 10 am to 5:30 pm Sunday, Nov. 11. Last Fan Standing with Bruce Campbell is 8pm Saturday, Nov. 10. Tickets start at $20. For full pricing, guests and schedule, visit eugenecon.com — Henry Houston
