Former TNA wrestler Jesse Neal and indie wrestler Leva participated in the Florida Supercon at the Miami Airport Convention Center.
Part of the Florida Supercon Championship Wrestling show, Neal faced ECW original Raven. Christina Von Eerie, another from TNA, battled Street Fighter’s Chun-Li (Leva) and the Baroness of GI Joe fame. Sub Zero, Scorpion, Mario, the Miami Zombie, Spider-Man and Joker were among the characters/wrestlers who also competed.
Leva’s background, likes and in-ring personas fit perfectly with the Supercon’s format. Neal’s look also meshed well with the event’s concept.
Leva and Neal, two young talents, answered some questions about their journey in the wrestling business. Leva, a comic books fan, showed photos of her various wrestling characters, some patterned after comic book heroes, as well as artwork created by friends.
Both are graduates of the Team 3D Academy, a wrestling school run by Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley in (Central Florida) Kissimmee.
