I just got home from a Lita signing at the CarQuest Wheels of Wonder Car Show in Pittsburgh at the Convention Center. The signing was scheduled to run from 1:30-3:30. I finally reached Lita at about 3:45 and there was still 150+ people after me where security finally cut off the line. So, she was still signing until way past 4:30, probably closer to 5:00. Lita was the true professional. I have been to pro football and baseball signings where the “athletes” acted like total asses (Grow up Pirates…you guys aren’t stars), like we should be kissing their feet, but Lita was truly more professional than anyone I had ever met. Lita exemplified the Professional in professional wrestler. She went out of her way to make conversation with every person that made it to the stage and took the time to pose for pictures. But, to top it all off and which truly amazed me was when she stood up, in obvious pain, (but still smiling) and limped off stage to sign autographs and take pictures with a couple of guys in wheelchairs. She could have easily just signed the pics and had someone take them to the guys, but she went the extra mile. I was very proud to go from a casual Lita fan to a full blown Lita mark.
