A look back at New England Fan Fest 4
New England Fan Fest 4 took Warwick, Rhode Island by storm as it invaded the beautiful Crowne plaza Hotel. This was the next location for our event and what a beautiful location and layout for this event.
Fans packed the hotel from all over the united states and even our super fan Shu from Japan! Shuhei Aoki was our Super Fan who flew in from Japan each and every year. His first year was 2010 as he was so very excited to meet the legendary Savoldi Family. He had such a great time that he came back in 2011. He became a great friend and a regular here at New England Fan Fest. He returned in 2013 for Fan Fest 3 and again in 2014 for Fan Fest 4. Sadly that would be his final Fan Fest as he passed away unexpectedly on the way home from Fan Fest 4. He had a heart attack on route home and had a heart condition that wasn`t even known until after the fact. We miss our friend Shu here at New England Fan Fest but certainly have the great memories forever.

This is one of Shu`s final photos ever taken moments after the Hall of Fame ceremony let out.
The Fan Fest ran through out the day Saturday and featured pro wrestling stars from all different generations as always. Clutch City Productions out of Texas were on hand representing Scott Hall, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and X Pac. Local talents were on hand such as Bert Centeno, Slyk Wagner Brown, Ramona Romano, Robbie the Giant, JT Dunn, "The Devil`s Reject" Brandon Webb, Scotty Slade, "The Sure Thing" Mark Shurman, Alex Payne, The stars of CHIKARA WRESTLING, Mike Bennett, Cam Zagami among many others. It was a great opportunity to not only meet the legends of pro wrestling but those who are up and coming as well!
