A Nazi at Baltimore Celebfest?
I wrote about Missy Hyatt, the “First Lady of Wrestling” when she reposted the picture above back in October 2022. The photo, originally from 2010, features Hyatt wearing a Nazi SS visor cap and coat and very little else. Now, I am bringing her up because of her appearance next Sunday, February 5, at Baltimore Celebfest 6 in Westminster, MD.
Hyatt has had to deny she’s a Nazi before, which is never a good look. Her 2013 denials of being a Nazi mentioned that she was both a World War II and U.S. Civil War reenactor and that she chose to reenact as a Nazi nurse because, to quote her directly, “I just like the uniforms since they look better than the Allies.”
That picture at the top of this post is a lot of things, but it isn’t of reenacting. The SS was responsible for a good share of Nazi war crimes and atrocities. One notable one was the Lidice massacre.
For further evidence of her viewpoints, she praised Infowars, the show hosted by conspiracy nutjob Alex Jones. After Ye (fka Kanye West) appeared on Infowars last fall along with white nationalist Nick Fuentes, the Republican Jewish Coalition put out a statement referring to Jones, West, and Fuentes as “a disgusting triumvirate of conspiracy theorists, Holocaust deniers, and antisemites.”
On January 5, it was announced that Missy Hyatt is appearing at Baltimore Celebfest 6 on Sunday, February 5. Her autograph and photo op prices are not available yet.
Baltimore Celebfest is a really popular event that has consisted of wrestling legends and modern stars. It is a mainstream event that is becoming even more mainstream this time with the addition of Baltimore Orioles legends Rick Dempsey, Al Bumbry, Tippy Martinez, and Mike Bordick. Even Pete Rose will be there along with Ric Flair, who is represented by the same company. There is a card, collectibles, and toy show in addition to the convention with all the pro wrestling and baseball greats.
I’m not sure too many of the modern wrestling fans or the baseball fans would be too thrilled with Missy Hyatt and her views. Then again, her fans could ask her to autograph the Nazi cheesecake picture if they really wanted to.
I’m hearing there might be other controversial guests appearing at Baltimore Celebfest this time as well.
