I just got back from TNA’s fan interaction and I got to say that it was class all the way. Kurt Angle was unable to make the show due to his wife going into labor early, but Kurt being the man he is will have a separate meet and greet tomorrow from 1 to 3 pm at the CompuWare Arena for all fans who paid for today’s event.
All of the wrestlers at the event were completely personable and looked like they were having a good time there. They split into two sessions (11-1 and 1-3) with half of the wrestlers in each session.
During each session, Jeremy Borash hosted a Q&A with many of the wrestlers (Eric Young, Rhino, Team 3D, Dixie Carter, Mike Tenay and Don West, TNA Knockouts, Ron Killings, Jim Cornette, and Kevin Nash). Funny thing happened during Nash’s time. Borash asked Nash who from his past would be at the X Invitational match at the PPV and when he mentioned Goldberg the placed erupted in boos. I think that is a clear indication to the company of what the fans think of Goldberg.
When Cornette was up there, there was a “Russo Sucks” chant that he found funny. Dixie Carter, who was right in front of me at the time, didn’t seem amused with the reaction. Dixie was in the crowd for almost the whole event shaking hands, answering questions, and taking pictures with fans.
Like Dixie, some of the talent who were not signing at the time made themselves available in the crowd for fans to shake hands and snap photos with.
I was able to ask Don West, Mike Tenay and Jeremy Borash a few questions and will be posting the audio on my website for fans to listen too. In all, the whole thing was very enjoyable.
