Overall, it was a blast. Prior to getting into Axxess, Big Show was hanging out in the lobby waiting to find out where to go. While he was there he was extremely personable and took pictures with people and signing autographs. When the WWE officials showed up they said “no more pictures or autographs.” It was funny to see Big Show take about three more pictures and sign autographs all the way down the escalator. It clearly irritated the WWE officials. Funny stuff.
The superstars signing last night were (ones I was able to see).
Sheamus: very cool, took time with every fan
Kofi Kingston: again very good with everyone
Rosa Mendes: again very nice and took time to talk to my seven year old
Gail Kim: while waiting on the camera to get fixed, I was able to talk to Gail Kim for about seven minutes. Really great conversation, we talked about everything from WrestleMania to TNA
John Morrison: huge line. By the time we got up there they were rushing people through due to it being almost 10:00 p.m.
LayCool: clearly having a great time with the fans. Laughing and joking around
Jim Duggan: fans just love this man and it was apparent by the way they reacted to him. he stood up at every picture and would hug the ladies.
The following performers were there but not enough time to see.
Cole and Swagger (huge line), Hornswoggle, Alberto Del Rio (huge line), The Corre, Sunny, Jimmy Hart, Pat Patterson, Gerry Brisco, Vicki and Zigler, Chris Masters, Vickie and Dolph (huge line but you could easily see that Vicki was having a blast)
VIP Only Big Show, Randy Orton
I heard a few rumblings from fans who came to see Orton but did not have VIP tickets and were not allowed in to see him. I was thinking, well, read the freaking program…whatever.
C.M. Punk and Kane did Q&A in the ring. It was funny to see Kane in jeans and a windbreaker.
