WWE® Superstars Hardy Boyz™ will make a triumphant return to the circuit when they attend Wizard World
Comic Con Austin at the Austin Convention Center on Saturday, November 18. They will greet fans, pose for photo ops and sign autographs from 3-6 p.m.
Jeff Hardy dared the WWE Universe to dream big. Going from a scrawny teenager to one of the most popular WWE Champions in history, The Charismatic Enigma showed that anything was possible when you took a risk. He and his brother Matt began competing for WWE as teenagers, bravely stepping into the squared circle to take on Superstars like Razor Ramon and King Kong Bundy. Though Jeff often was the recipient of beatings that made the WWE Universe cringe, his refusal to give up on his dream of becoming a WWE Champion got him noticed by officials.
When Matt first left his backyard training grounds of Cameron, N.C., and ventured into the squared circle alongside Jeff, few could’ve foreseen the six World Tag Team Titles The Hardys would secure. By the time they competed in their groundbreaking Triangle Ladder Match at WrestleMania 2000, the brothers were the hottest duo in sports-entertainment. Apart from his sibling, Matt achieved success in solo ranks as well, including United States, Hardcore, European and Cruiserweight Championship reigns. The greatest achievement, however, came in 2008 when Matt triumphed in a Championship Scramble Match to capture the ECW Title.
They join a lineup of superstar entertainers scheduled to attend the pop culture extravaganza, including Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Justice League), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, Van Helsing), Val Kilmer (Batman Forever, Top Gun), the “Firefly” trio of Summer Glau (“Arrow”), Jewel Staite (“Stargate: Atlantis”) and Sean Maher (“The Playboy Club”), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy, “The Walking Dead”) and Nichelle Nichols (“Star Trek”) and more.
Comic Con events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop culture: movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more. The 14th and final event scheduled on the 2017 Wizard World
calendar, Austin show hours are Friday, November 17, 4-9 p.m.; Saturday, November 18, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, November 19, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Kids 10 and under are admitted free with paid adult.
Comic Con Austin is also the place for cosplay, with fans young and old showing off their best costumes throughout the event. Fans dressed as every imaginable character – and some never before dreamed – will roam the convention floor and participate in the famed Wizard World
Costume Contest on Saturday evening.
