In addition to the special meet and greet, attendees can enjoy additional photo opportunities with a life-size WWE wrestler standee and create their own replica WWE Title Belt. Attendees can participate in those events between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
For those who are unfamiliar with Angle, he’s best known for winning multiple WWE championships and has competed against a who’s who of the wrestling world, including The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Rey Mysterio and the late Eddie Guerrero.
Outside of WWE, he has also competed in various independent wrestling promotions as well as TNA / Impact Wrestling before returning to WWE, where he was inducted into the 2017 Hall of Fame.
Angle’s most notable accomplishment is winning a gold medal for freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Summer Olympics with, as he has stated numerous times, with a “broken freakin’ neck.” According to Wikipedia, Angle fractured two of his cervical vertebrae and herniated two discs.
All guests at the event will have the opportunity to take home a WWE collectors’ poster.
