Hard pass from yours truly.
Because of price or the names?
Both. I have zero desire to pay that $$$ for any of those names. I'm way more excited about meeting Hakushi that Saturday lmao.
It is high but I usually saved by skipping people I already met and limiting myself to 1 auto and got many big names on projects I prob wouldnt have gotton otherwise. Thats why Im skipping dolph comedy show

I haven't met most of the people appearing but I just don't feel like meeting them. I'd pay for that HHH/Steph dual photo op if they offered that again though.

They don't sell figures. TRU was somewhat of a partner for WWE.

They do a ton of signings at various Cricket Wireless stores -- they had Dolph appear there during a Summerslam weekend, too.

Hot Topix is probably another store that'll get some signings.

I suppose, but you're missing the point. TRU sold WWE figures, and those figures were/are a major money maker for the company. The appearances at TRU's was, at its root, to promote those figures, and as part of a long-standing retail relationship. It's not enough to just say, well, WWE needs to find a different store, there has to be a business/marketing reason to do so. I'm not saying they won't, but it's also not a given.

I feel ya. I'm just saying those free signings are likely to still happen elsewhere, albeit they may be less than years past.

That Alexa Bliss/Naomi/Asuka meet and greet from last year is looking like a good investment now in comparison to this year with them just having Alexa Bliss for the same price.

From what I remember this worked out to be $154 with the Ticketmaster fees, which is just insanely high for what you get.

Like everyone else, I'm hoping for a few more free signings to be added. We only have Sasha Banks at Cricket Wireless announced so far. And I guess that Sheamus/Cesaro one in NJ if we're counting that. Last year had Becky Lynch at Barnes and Noble in Tribeca, Dolph at a Cricket Wireless in Brooklyn, Carmella/Mark Henry/Nia Jax/Apollo Crews at the Brooklyn Cyclones game, Jinder Mahal at Stubhub, Carmella and Big Show at a Footlocker in midtown, the Usos at the Coney Island Boardwalk, Samoa Joe at Midtown Comics, and Natalya, Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Neville, and Apollo/Titus at various TRUs. Granted nearly all of those were only announced about 10 days before Summerslam, so we have time yet.

I went to the Becky and Jinder signings. I'm hoping Stubhub does another because it was so well run.

Stubhub store? Maybe Foot Locker in Times Square(I met Big Show there last year). A wrestlemania book will be out around then so hopefully there will be book signings at one of the Barnes and Noble stores in NYC.
