Joey Roth at Wizard World and Elsewhere

Joey Roth is the Main Event Villain of wrestling. He is also half of the Symbols of Wrestling (along with Roxi Heart). He is an actor, wrestler, manager, host and much more. Over the last couple years, he has added Johngy's Beat interviewer to his already massive resume.
Last year at Wizard World Chicago, Joey interviewed several creators, including author Sheryl Steines, author artist DJ Corchin and more. Joey brings a new angle to these interviews. Having done interviews at Wizard World for 15 years, I can use a fresh perspective and Joey brings that and more. Many on the wrestling scene will tell you he is fresh.
Of course, in that world, many other adjectives are used for Joey. While many seem to be ngative, Joey thrives on all of them. He does his job well. I don't want to spoil the illusion and give you a peak behind the curtain, but Joey is actually a nice guy. Just don't tell him I said that.
Last year was the last year for Wizard World as we know it. Acquired by Fan Expo, Wizard World's spirit will live on. Fan Expo has announced many events this year, including Chicago July 7-10. I hope to have Joey back on board for a new round of interviews at Fan Expo Chicago 2022.
Check out Joey on Facebook to get news of his appearances. Also, go to for news and updates on that convention.
