Wizard World Philadelphia 2016 is an great place for friends and family to go to

Last week, me and my girlfriend Fidelina Roman had the opportunity to cover Wizard World Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center from Thursday until Saturday and we had an blast. There was many cosplayers, comic writers, contests, video game tournaments, face painting and much more for families and friends and kids can go out and geek out over there. People can go there and dress up as their favorite super hero, super villian, video game character and anything else that they love and show it off in good fashion. here are some pictures of good cosplayers and costumes that we have taken.



here is the video game tournament area where games such as Mario Kart 8, Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros. for WiiU and more were featured


We have also attended some Q and A panels from WWE Superstars and the first one is former WWE Champion Seth Rollins as he discussed his future goals for Wrestlemania, having matches with Finn Balor and AJ Styles, his sacrifices and much more.

The Second one we have attended was Sheamus as he also is featured in the Ninja Turtles movie that was just premiering that week. He talked about that along with Daniel Bryan, different styles of wrestling, how did he feel when he became WWE Champion back in 2009 and much more. Before the Q and A ended, he gave a fan an autographed (signed by him) Ninja Turtles magazine.

The final one was WWE Sasha Banks as she responds to internet rumors, her thoughts on women’s wrestling and much more

The Rest of the panels we have covered are the Captain America: Civil War panel which had Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie and also Stephen Amell’s Q and A panel


Overall, it was an great show and we hope to bring you more coverage when we go back next year. follow us on twitter @AltMindz and @Julianexcalibur 

My thoughts: today’s product of WWE since after Wrestlemania 32

While Wrestlemania 32 gave us some fantastic moments, I think most would agree the ending left us feeling underwhelmed and disappointed, a sour note in an otherwise very solid show. I for one had went to sleep that night feeling very deflated, and quite frankly pissed off that they would so blatantly ignore the fans wishes, just to get the title on the good looking, muscular, Samoan dude. Everything was going to remain the same, Raw was going to kick off with a 20 minute Authority promo, and conclude with Reigns beating every member of the League Of Nations while Cole screams, “Roman Reigns has overcome all the odds tonight!” It felt like WWE had no plans on changing the product, being content with their current stagnant state, despite the outcry of smarks and casuals alike, for change.

Until… Well, the next night.. 

The Raw after Wrestlemania felt fresh, the focus on young stars was a welcome change of pace, and something just felt different, it didn’t feel like an average Raw, it started with Shane being put in charge and ended with AJ Styles becoming the Number 1 Contender in an incredible Fatal Four Way, with 4 of the best workers in the business. However, I still wasn’t convinced, Shane’s tenure in charge seemed like a one-week thing, and this focus on the younger and more ‘IWC friendly’ guys may just have been to please the crowd the night after Mania, who they knew, if they gave them the same old stuff, would crap all over it, their fear of which was apparent through the commentators’ “boo the people they normally cheer” shtick. My skepticism seemed warranted given what we’d seen in the past. 

Boy was I wrong! 

The weeks that followed have kept with this theme of intriguing storyline development, new stars being built in the likes of Apollo Crews, Baron Corbin, Enzo and Cass etc, and overall simply a better product. The card for Payback looks amazing, I’m looking forward to pretty much every match, the build has been fantastic, every match has been given meaning, purpose, and most importantly air time to build organically, little to none of it seems shoe-horned in, and there are two major plots which could give us a massive indication on the companies direction for the foreseeable future . The introduction of Anderson and Gallows has made for some compelling television, and an aura of mystic surrounds their inevitable eligance. Though it seems set up for Balor to join forces with Gallows and Anderson to turn on AJ, they could just as easily throw us a curve-ball, which hasn’t been felt in a very long time. Vince’s decision on Sunday, will shape the company for the next while at least, I can’t see it being as cut and dry as him picking one or the other, the possibilities are endless, which is very exciting.

Ratings…DO NOT PANIC! 

Yes, the ratings have been fairly poor, but that should be expected, the new talent needs to be given time to settle in and get over with the casual audience. These guys are mostly unknown to casual fans, so when the guys they’ve known to be the stars aren’t on the show, they won’t tune in for a while, which is exactly why this opportunity needs to be taken, while a lot of your money and ratings draws are out, to enhance the new guys, and give them time to establish themselves with a new audience. Don’t go rushing back to the old guys in a panic because the ratings have dropped, it would completely derail all the good things that have been done since Wrestlemania. 

Potential For Change: 

I refer back to the title, the sense of change is looming, the opportunity to usher in a new era in WWE is very much in the companies hands, this Sunday, is a huge night for the WWE and professional wrestling in general, you can give back to us fans, and make us once again proud to call ourselves wrestling fans, the feeling of unpredictability once so synonymous with professional wrestling, feels like it’s slowly creeping it’s way back. The potential for two, company altering swerves, is here, my skepticism though not fully gone, is fading, don’t disappoint WWE.
