Billy, a lifelong fan of Professional Wrestling, will be appearing at Wizard World Chicago to support his new position as creative director for the brand new wrestling promotion RESISTANCE PRO.

Oh, my god. This will either be really good, or cringe inducing.

Well, I was already gonna be there. Might as well check out the ol’ Bollster.

Poor comic-con really isn’t about comics anymore, it’s for celebs of all types to shill vaguely geek-related projects and get some free publicity in a slow summer news season. But good for Billy for trying to get deeper involved into something he’s passionate about, which could also mean less wrestling-related SP projects. Or more cross promotion. Probably the last bit.
