– More big stars have been added to TNA wrestler Booker T’s Legends of Wrestling Fanfest on Friday, April 3 in Houston, Texas including Diamond Dallas Page, Kimberly Page, Amy “Lita” Dumas, and Rikishi.
As if that isn’t enough star power, former WWF Women’s Champion Rockin’ Robin has also been added to the event as she will be appearing as a vendor’s guest. She is the half-sister of Jake “The Snake” Roberts and reigned as Women’s Champion from October 1988 until 1990 when she left the company. Following her departure from the company, the title was deactivated. The title remained inactive until December 1993 when Alundra Blayze (Madusa) came along for the rebirth of the Women’s division. One of Rockin’ Robin’s most notable moments in wrestling is when she badly sang “America the Beautiful” prior to WrestleMania V in Atlantic City. Her rendition of the patriotic song was cut out of the event’s original home video release not to mention that color commentator Jesse “The Body” Ventura chastised her following the lackluster performance, saying “she better keep her daytime job” or stick to wrestling.
