|WWE® Superstar Kane®, Divas The Bella Twins™ Added To Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, Saturday, September 27|
“The Devil’s Favorite Demon,” Twins Added To Roster Featuring William Shatner, Lauren Cohan, Evan Peters, More At Pop Culture Festival At Music City Center
WWE® Superstar Kane® and Divas The Bella Twins™ have been added to the celebrity roster at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con on Sunday, August 3, at the Music City Center on Saturday, September 27.
Kane will pose for photographs (12:30 p.m.), sign autographs (1:15 p.m.) and conduct an interactive Q&A panel for fans (2:45 p.m.). Nikki and Brie Bella will host their own panel at 3:30, followed by dual and single photo ops (4:15) and autographs (5:15 p.m.).
At seven feet tall and weighing in at more than 300 pounds, Kane is a monstrous abomination that seems to have been extracted directly from your childhood nightmares. The Devil’s Favorite Demon has tormented WWE since his debut at Badd Blood in October 1997, when he tore off the cage door and unleashed hell during the first-ever Hell in a Cell Match between Shawn Michaels and his half-brother, The Undertaker.
A self-admitted “tomboy” with a feminine side, Nikki originally planned to play professional soccer until a leg injury ended her career. From there, she followed her twin sister Brie’s lead into WWE.
Unsuccessful in seizing spots in the 2006 WWE Raw Diva Search, the Bellas caught the eyes of execs and soon landed in FCW. Training for the competition they’d soon crush (while male WWE fans formed crushes on them), Nikki and her sibling made their way onto the main roster in 2008 and turned heads whenever they set foot inside the ring.
Brie debuted on SmackDown in 2008, defeating her first opponent, Victoria, by way of “Twin Magic” — a move in which she and her identical sister, Nikki, secretly switch places during matches. In 2011, the sneaky tactic helped Brie defeat Eve and win her first Divas Championship.
Every bit as cunning as she is cute, this half-Mexican, half-Italian beauty appeared on ECW, WWE NXT, and both SmackDown and Raw, where she teamed up with her doppelgänger in both love and war. The flirtatious pair was romantically linked to The Miz & John Morrison, Daniel Bryan and even Alberto Del Rio.
The three join William Shatner (Star Trek, “T.J. Hooker”), Lauren Cohan (“The Walking Dead,” “The Vampire Diaries”), Evan Peters (X-Men: Days of Future Past, American Horror Story), Eliza Dushku (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”), Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs (“Charmed”) and Alan Tudyk (“Firefly,” 42) as top celebrities scheduled to attend Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, September 26-28 at the Music City Center. It is the 12th of 16 events in the 2014 series produced by Wizard World, Inc.
