Coffee With Zbyszko! Dinner With Steamboat! Party With Billy Jack!

Join us as the legends and history of Championship Wrestling from Florida are celebrated once again at CWF Legends FanFest 5 “Battle of the Belts” on June 15th, 2019. Our Featured Guest is Former NWA World Heavyweight Champion & WWE Hall of Famer, Ricky Steamboat! Steamboat spent several months in CWF early in his career and then went on to gain Legendary status in the Mid-Atlantic Territory, followed by the WWF where he had a classic match with Randy Savage for the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania III, & WCW where he and Ric Flair had a series of NWA World Championship bouts which are considered some of the best wrestling matches of all time. Steamboat will be signing autographs and taking photos at the FanFest and you can wear both the original WWF Intercontinental Championship and his WWE Hall of Fame Ring, a once in a lifetime opportunity. After the FanFest portion of the event has taken place, Steamboat will be the featured guest at our 2 hour catered dinner Q & A where he will share road stories and you’ll be able to ask questions of "The Dragon" in an intimate setting.

To celebrate the hugely popular 1980s innovative CWF series "Battle of the Belts,” former CWF referee and ring announcer Bruce Owens will be bringing his unique belt collection to Tampa which will be available for photo ops at the "AfterParty." Even bigger news-former Florida Tag-Team Champions Bob Roop and Bob Orton, Jr., who worked several territories together as a team, will be the official hosts of this event!

Our popular early afternoon event, "Cup Of Coffee With A Legend,” has been renamed for this FanFest-“Cup Of Coffee-A Trip To Larryland” with former AWA Champion Larry Zbyszko leading the charge! This event, like the “Battle Of The Belts” AfterParty is limited to ONLY fans who purchase the UltraTicket. Never before has an event offered an experience such as this where you can sit and drink coffee with this amazing storyteller and discuss his career. Larry spent a few months working CWF in 1975 and wrestled on the now infamous February 19 card that was Bobby Shane’s last match. Larry will discuss the tragic turn of events that took Bobby’s life, ended the career of Buddy Colt, and threw CWF into a state of turmoil. Larry will also discuss his time as AWA Champion, WCW run teaming with Arn Anderson, and will answer your questions.

Once again, CWF Legends FanFest 5 will be held in the Marriott Residence Inn in Lutz, FL off the Suncoast Parkway and tickets are again limited to only 200 wrestling fans, guaranteeing everyone a personalized experience.

Our guests at FanFest 5 include Former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, Bob Orton, Jr., former AWA Champion Larry Zbyszko, the return of Bob Roop, a rare public appearance by Rip "The Crippler" Oliver, "Cowboy" Scott Casey, The Gladiator (Ricky Hunter) and the Cuban Connection (Fidel Sierra & Ricky Santana).

We are proud to announce that Legendary wrestler/trainer/promotor Hiro Matsuda, part of the first inducted class into the CWF Hall-Of-Fame, will officially be inducted in the hall at CWF Legends Fanfest 5. Hiro’s daughter, Stephanie Kojima , will be on hand to accept the award in honor of her late father.
