WWE Superstar Kane and The Bella Twins to appear at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — WWE Superstar Kane and Divas The Bella Twins have been added to the celebrity roster at Wizard World Nashville Comic Con at the Music City Center on Saturday, Sept. 27.
Kane will pose for photo ops (12:30 p.m.), sign autographs (1:15 p.m.) and conduct an interactive Q&A panel for fans (2:45 p.m.). Nikki and Brie Bella will host their own panel at 3:30, followed by dual and single photo ops (4:15) and autographs (5:15 p.m.).
At 7-feet tall and weighing in at more than 300 pounds, Kane is a monstrous abomination that seems to have been extracted directly from your childhood nightmares. The Devil’s Favorite Demon has tormented WWE since his debut at Badd Blood in October 1997, when he tore off the cage door and unleashed hell during the first Hell in a Cell Match between Shawn Michaels and Kane’s half-brother, The Undertaker.
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 executives and soon landed in FCW. 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 Nikki secretly switched 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 and Daniel Bryan.
The three join William Shatner (“Star Trek,” “T.J. Hooker”), Evan Peters (“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “American Horror Story”), Eliza Dushku (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”), Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs (“Charmed”), and Alan Tudyk (“Firefly,” “42”) as top celebrities scheduled to attend Wizard World Nashville Comic Con, Sept. 26 to 28 at the Music City Center. It is the 12th 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.
Wizard World Comic Con events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop-fi, pop culture, movies, graphic novels, comics, toys, video gaming, television, sci-fi, gaming, original art, collectibles, contests and more. Wizard World Nashville Comic Con show hours are Friday, Sept. 26, 3 to 8 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 27, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 28, 11 a.m. 5 p.m.
