Bray Wyatt and The Bella Twins added to Wizard World San Antonio Comic Con
SAN ANTONIO — WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt, WWE Divas The Bella Twins have been added to the celebrity roster at the inaugural Wizard World San Antonio Comic Con on Sunday, Aug. 3, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
They replace WWE Superstar John Cena, who had been scheduled to attend but had to cancel due to filming.
Wyatt will pose for photo ops beginning at 11 a.m., then sign autographs from 11:45 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. The dazzling and devious Nikki and Brie Bella will begin their dual and single photo ops at 1:30 p.m., followed by an autograph session at 2:30 and interactive Q&A panel at 4 p.m.
The Superstar known as Bray Wyatt seems to have stepped out of the collective population’s nightmares and into our reality. A man shrouded in mystique, not much is known about the apparent head of The Wyatt Family — other than he seems to have a mission to bring his macabre vision to WWE.
Recently, Wyatt survived Dean Ambrose on SmackDown to claim a spot in the unprecedented WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match at WWE Money in the Bank on June 29. He also battled United States Champion Sheamus to a Disqualification on Raw — one that showed the continued problems between The Wyatt Family and WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos.
A self-admitted “tomboy” with a feminine side, Nikki originally planned to play professional soccer until a leg injury ended her career. From there, she followed her twin sister Brie’s lead into WWE.
Unsuccessful in seizing spots in the 2006 WWE Raw Diva Search, The Bellas caught the eyes of execs and soon landed in Florida Championship Wrestling. Training for the competition they’d soon crush (while male WWE fans formed crushes on them), Nikki and her sibling made their way onto the main roster in 2008 and turned heads whenever they set foot inside the ring.
Brie debuted on SmackDown in 2008, defeating her first opponent, Victoria, by way of “Twin Magic” — a move in which she and her identical sister secretly switch places during matches. In 2011, the sneaky tactic helped Brie defeat Eve and win her first Divas Championship.
Every bit as cunning as she is cute, this half-Mexican, half-Italian beauty appeared on ECW, WWE NXT, and both SmackDown and Raw, where she teamed up with her doppelgänger in both love and war. The flirtatious pair was romantically linked to The Miz & John Morrison, Daniel Bryan and even Alberto Del Rio.
The three join John Barrowman (“Arrow,” “Torchwood”), Jon Bernthal of “The Walking Dead,” William Shatner (“Star Trek,” “T.J. Hooker”), James Marsters (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Torchwood”) and Manu Bennett (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “Arrow”) among the celebrities scheduled to attend the event, set for Aug. 1-3. It is the ninth of 16 events in the 2014 series produced by Wizard World, Inc. and will also feature a top-drawer collection of well-known comics artists and writers and a variety of activities, exhibitors and special attractions.
