Weaver Cup 2009

Wendi Weaver congratulates The Kamakazi Kid on his tournament finals victory over Ric Converse in the 2009 Johnny Weaver Memorial Cup held August 15 at the Mid-Atlantic Sportatorium in Burlington NC. Mid-Atlantic wrestling legend Don Kernodle also made a special appearance at the event.
Randy Hedrick, who took the photo above, wrote the Gateway about Johnny Weaver and his daughter Wendi:
"He is the first hero I had as a child wrestling fan and working with him later in his life was a treasure. Wendi has turned into one of my very favorite guests as well, she's a very good representative of her father and all of the memories we cherish from the Mid Atlantic."
