Re: Big Event 15 - 11/10/18 - Queens, NY

They didn't specify WWE hall, so I'm guessing Lawrence Taylor.

Re: Legends Of The Ring 26 (billybatson)

Rock N Roll are definitely two of THE nicest guys. I talked to Ricky on the phone a few years ago and if not for the mentioning all of his booking dates he just conversed like an old pal. I met them at an indy show a few years ago. Ricky told a story about being with a few other NWA guys in the 80s ...

Re: Big Bully Busick has reportedly passed away

All accounts had him as a really good guy, from both fan and wrestler perspectives. Really cool just how well known he was for how short a time he was in WWF. I thought the Bully character had longer life. He would be just as good as a Skinner or Berzerker or Repo Man but I guess he just wanted to m...

Re: CSA Show and other meets around CSA show

I'm not sure, I know CSA used to be awesome with table photo ops in early 2000s but by mid 2000s (with old staff) they were starting to get away from it unless the player who super friendly and from my experience it was a combination of an unfriendly player or an unfriendly staff member with a so-so...

Re: ICW's Day of Extreme

Awesome meets!
Any idea why Tommy Rich wasn't with the other FBI guys, he played "Big Don Tommy Rich" who I think was the manager of the group.

Re: CSA Show and other meets around CSA show

Definitely sweet photos! Especially sweet score with Pete Rose considering he is one of those "all about the money" types. I get you don't know Dan Marino and Joe Namath from their sports fame (it's admirable you like them for their lesser known roles) but they are huge names in sports. Namath is ge...

Incidentally, he was my first ever celebrity photo op.
When and where did you get him?

I met him at 2003 World of Wheels but either the photo never took or I've lost it as I remember shaking his hand in the photo but I cant find it.
Next year 2004 was R. Lee Ermey. Both really nice guys.

Re: Hall of Famer Johnny Valiant

Sweet photo op, Steve. Johnny's was never too animated in photo ops but he was a great guy and multi talented. Bruno Sammartino was everyone's hero for his in and out of ring actions and so many people are obviously very devastated with his passing, as was I. The Valiant Brothers are my heroes for t...

Hall of Famer Johnny Valiant

As many know by now Johnny Valiant has died. He was one of the first few Hall of Fame classes so you know he was very important to Vince McMahon and/or the earlier history of WWF. After leaving WWF in 1988 he seemed to largely be done with fame except for the autograph signings and comedy shows (tho...

Re: Killers, Bulls, Kongs and more - the Japan Report!

What an experience!
Just 14 days in to the new year and this has to be a contender for next years year end voting! Some of these character's gimmicks were so intimidating but they are so nice and welcome you with literal open arms to their establishments. So cool!!

Re: Meeting the Mob: A Cuppa Goodfellas, an Irishman, Hoffa, Capone & My Cousin Vinny!!!

Epic report with some of the biggest names! I've never seen a Joe Pesci photo, at least I haven't. Great autographs, too. The Al is a full signature on the top and a short signature on the bottom. Though the short sig is even a full signature compared to his "line" that he gives when crowded. As we ...

Re: I faced the FIFTH ELEMENT and had to DIE HARD

The Bruce photo op is amazing. Clear, front face image of him looking at the camera and smiling which, you have to imagine he doesn't do too often judging from other fans interactions. PLUS, three autographs from such a tough signer .

Re: Bill Murray mini report

That is epic, Steve. I love the look on Bill's face. Maybe this donation thing will really get him going on signing. It's crazy though, how tough he has been with photo ops versus signing.

Re: OJ Simpson to do a NE signing?

He still has 5 more years of parole. Sentence was 25 years and he served 9 and he still has 5 more years. He must really be kicking himself for not taking the plea deal where he would have been out and scott free after 2.5 years. He probably figured jail time would never happen. How many celebritie...
