Given Missy Hyatt’s noted energetic, entertaining, and sometimes controversial history behind the mic, this event it just got even more exciting! No slouch on the microphone, Missy was once offered a role to replace Rowdy Roddy Piper in the WWF and host her own talkshow. Come see Missy do what she does best, and entertain the masses! We are honored to have Missy and give her the true spotlight and recognition that she deserves. She’s one of the true pioneers in this industry and is often unfortunately overlooked. Her beauty, grace, poise, and mastery of the microphone really created the mold for the modern-day Diva. From her groundbreaking feuds in the UWF and time spent in WCW and ECW, Missy is one the most well-traveled, and highly respected figures in pro wrestling history. It is truly an honor to have her as a host of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
This fun filled day will take place this Saturday at the Coastline Convention Center at 501 Nutt St in Wilmington, North Carolina. Tickets and more information available at MastersofRingEntertainment.com and at Yellow Dog Discs at 351 S College Rd #1 in Wilmington, NC.
