Join Top Stars At Inaugural Pop Culture Festival At Reno-Sparks Convention Center
WWE® Superstar Roman Reign™ and Divas The Bella Twins™ will attend the inaugural Wizard World Reno Comic Con on Saturday, November 22, at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.
Reigns will pose for photo ops beginning at 11 a.m., then sign autographs from noon-1:15 p.m. and follow up with an interactive Q&A panel at 1:30. The dazzling and devious Nikki and Brie Bella will begin their Q&A panel at 3:30 p.m., then pose for dual and single photo ops at 4:15, followed by an autograph session at 5:15.
“We are thrilled to have one of the hottest WWE Superstars Roman Reigns and the incredibly talented Bella Twins coming to Reno,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO. “Again, Wizard World is the place to be to meet your favorite WWE talent!”
A star defensive tackle at Georgia Tech, Roman Reigns wrecked offensive guards for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars before becoming a WWE Superstar. The hulking powerhouse brought his smash-mouth gridiron style to WWE’s developmental system, NXT, where he left a long line of tough opponents in crumpled heaps.
Later, he teamed with fellow Superstars Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to form The Shield™, targeted anyone and everyone they saw as an example of injustice.
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 Norman Reedus, Jon Bernthal and Michael Rooker of “The Walking Dead,” William Shatner (Star Trek, “T.J. Hooker”), Jewel Staite (“Firefly,” “Stargate: Atlantis”), Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) and Adam West and Burt Ward (“Batman”) among the celebrities scheduled to attend the event, set for November 21-23. It is the final of 16 events in the 2014 series produced by Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) and will also feature a top-drawer collection of well-known comics artists and writers and a variety of activities, exhibitors and special attractions.
