Pro Wrestling Convention

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Jake "The Snake" Roberts and other legendary wrestlers headlined a pro-wrestling convention this weekend in Allentown.

Folks lined up inside the Merchants Square Mall to meet their favorite wrestlers.

"The Snake" says he was flattered by all the attention.

"It's fun looking at people's faces and seeing that you meant something to them a long time," Roberts said. "They still remember. Their memory is a lot better than mine. I've been hit in the head too many times."

Other wrestlers included the Sandman, Stevie Richards, and Schuylkill County resident Snitsky.
