Adolfo of Squared Circle Expo

With many comic and horror cons in the Chicago and midwest area, why wasn't there a wrestling convention? At one time, this area was a hotbed for pro wrestling. There were wrestling conventions on the east coast, North Carolina, Florida and elsewhere, but nothing around here.
Then Adolfo (and his crew) changed that.
A veteran of the comic con scene, Adolfo teamed with his wife Carrie and married friends Ed and Heather (semi-retired wrestlers and convention veterans) to launch Squared Circle Expo in Indianapolis in 2021. Since then it has grown in size and popularity.
SCX is everything you'd want in a wrestling convention. The two day event features 60+ wrestlers appearing for meet-and-greets, panels, Q&As and photo ops. Some even wrestle, along with enough other independent wrestlers to fill a full wrestling card.
I have never seen convention guests in such good moods. All of the wrestlers actually look like they enjoy being there. Usually, there are a handful of celebs who are polite, but not very engaging. This is not so at SCX. I have never had a bad experience with any of the wrestlers and I have met more than 250 at the first three shows.
Credit goes to Adolfo and his team. They are an amazing bunch. They are incredibly hard-working, passionate and fun. They know how to party, but they know when to work.
I highly encourage every wrestling fan to attend SCX. I will be there March 29-30. For more info, go to and also check here for my updates.
