So, what happens when Alberto El Patron and Brad Maddox are both at Wrestlecon?

Nothing.  Alberto canceled his appearance.  That said, next time they are in the same place, for the sake of each of them, I would hope they are on opposite sides of the room and stay far away from each other.

Since Luke Gallows did the Tex Ferguson character on Highspots.com DVDs, does that mean they sue WWE?

Not really how it works.   He may have performed the character there (as SEX Ferguson) but Highspots releasing something with the character doesn't mean they are claiming they created or own the character.

Whatever happened to James Vandenberg?

Vandenberg aka The Sinister Minister run a karaoke business in the Orlando, Florida area.  He still occasionally appears on independent events.

I saw Shawn Michaels and Sting are both booked for Wrestlemania weekend by WWE but are also booked for Wrestlecon?  How can that be possible?

Their respective WWE deals allow them to do signings outside of WWE's auspices. 

Any chance WWE does Big Show vs. Shaq at Wrestlemania next year?

No.  Show has made it clear his current deal expires in February 2018 and has openly talked about quietly fading away at that point.  Shaq in Florida would have meant something.  I don't know the match has the same appeal in New Orleans.

I would assume you have collected a lot of wrestling memorabilia over the years?  What are your favorite pieces.

My all-time favorite piece is the Broadway poster for the Andy Kaufman/Debbie Harry pro wrestling play flop The Teaneck Tanzai, which I acquired at a charity event and is framed in my office.  I also have a theatrical poster for the film "Memphis Heat" that was signed by a number of Memphis Wrestling personalities over the years framed.  I have a Ribera's Steakhouse jacket and a few pieces of gear that were gifted to me by pro wrestlers over the years who I can't name for obvious reasons and I was very touched by those gestures, so those mean a lot to me as well.  I worked on the ECW action figure, videogame and DVD lines so there are sentimental value to those items as well.
