Re: WrestleCon- April 5-6, 2019- New York, NY

As of now I'm on the fence if I'll even go to Wrestlecon - I need Taka, but not on a major project, and there's a few other "get if there" names, but not that one huge hook to get me in the door. Between the NJPW festival, the MSG show, and NXT, I'll be in town a lot that weekend, so I may very well...

Re: Crispin Glover (yikes) Returns to NYC- March 18/19, 2019

By the way AJLe, when you went for him the last time and paid for him to sign your 2 items, you should have given your money and item to a third party and gotten it signed that way.You would have been done. The last time I got him, he wasn't charging at all for graphs, but he was very firm on his "...

Re: Crispin Glover (yikes) Returns to NYC- March 18/19, 2019

Not that I would WANT to pay, but honestly I can't blame him for starting to charge at these. For under $20 tickets (at least at the shows I went to), you could get two BTTF items signed and a photo at no extra cost. So I'm sure at what was essentially $10 combo prices, dealers (especially at NYC ev...

Re: Crispin Glover (yikes) Returns to NYC- March 18/19, 2019

I did NOT go. The nonsense discussed above, paired with it being a weekday, and the fact that I wouldn't get home until well after 1AM, made it an easy pass. With the $65 thing, I would much rather he just charged that at "normal" signings, and left the screenings to the hipster fans who are actuall...

Re: Who's your best "I'll get them in case they make it big" person?

The way you put it I agree with you. But these kind of names I get in passing when going for someone I want. And as I learnt the hard way, never ever pass on something in front of you. But that's the thing - if I don't know or care about the person at the time, there isn't "something" in front of m...

Re: WrestleCon- April 5-6, 2019- New York, NY

FYI DJ Z has reportedly signed with WWE. I wonder if he'll cancel his scheduled appearances Mania weekend... Dammit. I can never get this guy They usually let these guys finish up indy dates, so I'd think he be allowed to do Wrestlecon. This isnt an indy date. It's a signing that Torrie was already...

Re: Who's your best "I'll get them in case they make it big" person?

To each their own, but I literally don't have a single name that fits that description - if they're not in something I care about on the day I'd meet them, I wouldn't cross the street to get them even if free. Going for "future prospects" is a rabbit hole that never ends, since you could theoretical...

Re: RIP John Carl Buechler

Yes, it's very sad - his wife had just started a Gofundme for medical costs for his cancer treatments about a month ago, and now he's already gone. To answer your question, I met him a couple of times - out in LA at Weekend of Horrors (one of the last years Fangoria ran a huge guest list show), and ...

I remember going to ECW shows when Blue Meanie was first starting with them, so seeing him with grey hair makes me feel old, lol.

Re: Monster Mania 43 - August 16-18, 2019- Cherry Hill, NJ

Over the years, a bunch of working actors have originally been advertised by MMania for all three days, and eventually got switched to Sat/Sun only because their shooting schedules changed. The Walking Dead actors who were still active on the show come to mind.

Also, if you're planning on attending either of these make sure you allow for enough time with your travel plans, since I think "times subject to change" can/will come into play. Both times I went for him were around the same times as these events are, I was up near the front of the line both times,...

Re: Rare meets, fan on twitter

No cool stories involving Masa come to mind. These days, wrestling fans who present themselves as "superfans" tend to be attention whores who want to be part of the show, and often think they're more important than they actually are, but Masa just hung out and talked like any other member of our gro...
