Nathan sent this along. … I was at last night’s Triple H book signing at Tower Records in Bloomingdale, IL. I got there at about 4 O’Clock for a 7pm signing and the line was already a block long. By the time Triple H arrived the line was several blocks long. He arrived on time and it was announced he would only be signing copies of his book. WWE was there cutting promos with the crowd. They had people saying such things as “Wrestlemania is big time in Chicago” and having them sign releases. Triple H was very polite to all fans in attendance and shook hands with all fans and thanked them for coming. Fans that wanted a different item signed (a lot of fans brought sledgehammers) were told they could go to the back of the line and if time permitted Triple H would sign the item. There is no way he would have been able to get to everyone unless he stayed all night. Triple H was not the most personable autograph guest I have ever seen, but given the amount of people waiting that is to be expected. Besides does anybody want to meet a happy Jolly Triple H??
