This year's Geek'd Con in Downtown Shreveport has a killer lineup. From Elvira to Tara Reid, comic book creators to professional cosplayers from Australia, there's something on the guest list for everyone.

Earlier this year it was announced that one of my favorite pro wrestlers of all time was going to be on his way to Shreveport. Sean Waltman, X-Pac from DX in WWE(F) and Syxx, and original nWo member in WCW was originally scheduled to come to Geek'd Con. But today, plans have changed. It was announced on the Geek'd Facebook page that Sean Waltman would not be attending. Which sucks.

But, soon after it was announced that X-Pac was not attending, Geek'd Con's replacement was announced, and based on the social media reaction, no one was too upset. 

The replacement announced was former ECW World Champion, WWE Intercontinental Champion, and current Lucha Underground superstar, John Hennigan. Fighting in WWE and ECW as John Morrison, he currently works in Lucha Underground as Johnny Mundo.

Joining Lucha Underground's Catrina on the list means there will be two of the biggest names in LU live at Geek'd Con this August!

Geek'd Con is hitting the Shreveport Convention Center this August, presented by Margaritaville Resort & Casino. Tickets are on-sale now, they're $20 for the 3-day weekend, $15 for daily tickets, and kids 12-and-under get in free per-paid-adult-ticket.
