Date 2020: Since Comic Con Africa announced that the Con MUST Go ONline, fans have been excited to hear more news of which talent will be appearing. After the announcement of Kevin Eastman, creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jimmy C Mulligan, renowned Disney Artist, conceptual mixed media artist Tony Moy, and comic creator Nooligan, today Comic Con Africa announced some epic news:
Bret “The Hitman” Hart of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fame, is attending the Online Con!
Well-known to WWE fans, this legend of wrestling has stacked up a pile of Championship belts. Among other accolades he was World Champion seven times, United States Champion five times, King of the Ring, Royal Rumble Winner, and has rounded it all off with immortalisation in the WWE Hall of Fame.
The Hitman is well known for one big claim: “I am the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!”. But who would dare argue considering he has taken on pro wrestlers from Randy Savage to Stone Cold Steve Austin to the Undertaker and defeated them all.
Bret’s career ended abruptly in 1997 after sustaining a stroke-causing blow from fellow WWE wrestler Goldberg, but as a man who in many ways shaped professional wrestling, he didn’t stop and continues to draw massive crowds at every public appearance he makes. He is now an actor, author and a riveting inspirational speaker. A true humanitarian and role model, he lends himself to charity events and was voted one of the Top 50 Canadians of all time.
At the Online Con, Bret will attend a live panel and a Q&A with fans so prepare yourself with any burning questions you have for this larger-than-life figure. There will also be pre-recorded content from The Hitman. He will appear on all four days with exclusive content just for Comic Con Africa fans.
After fans thronged to last year’s WWE stand and took loads of photos of themselves in the mock-up ring with a championship belt over their shoulders, it is clear that Comic Con fans have a massive appetite for pro wrestlers and WWE. Comic Con Africa has answered this hunger with none other than the best, Bret “The Hitman” Hart.
