Longtime professional wrestling manager Jim Cornette will be coming to Philadelphia as part of the Keystone Comic Con, held Sept. 14–16 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, 11th and Arch streets.

Cornette was known for holding a tennis racket, sometimes using it on one of his wrestlers’ opponents.

For $25, wrestling fans can attend a live Jim Cornette Experience that includes watching the Midnight Express winning the NWA tag team championship from Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson at the old Philadelphia Civic Center. They’ll also get the chance to take part in a question-and-answer session.

The VIP option includes an autographed picture, a personal question-and-answer session and a cheesesteak.
