So if the date will be when we think it is(10/28) I don't know why they haven't announced anything yet...

More telling than a lack of announcement is a lack of website prep. Normally a month or so before the announcement, the website goes from a "thank you for last year" to a "prepare for this year", and it still hasn't done anything. Perhaps their sales last year weren't up to standards and they aren't being offered names they feel they can work with.

You think it's possible that there won't be one this year?

Twitter. Said perhaps next week most recently. But have been asking people it is coming soon and who they want to see. It might be late advance notice but there is no reason to believe its not happening.

Pretty sure VIP generally runs about $250 (one auto and one photo op from each talent). And then there's a deluxe VIP for $350 where you get two autos and one photo op from each talent. One or both options include 8x10s. And they both get you to the front of the line. Also last year they increased the price before the end of the first day of sales. And they always continue to increase prices until the day of the event. So you want to buy right when they go on sale for the best deal. And by the day of the event almost everything is sold out.

I asked what was going on with RSF on Ringsides FB page & they answered:
Hi, we are currently just finalizing things with WWE - information should be announced soon! Who are you hoping to see?

Seems that maybe since WWE isn't currently running shows in the few days leading up to 10/29, maybe it was easier to have a few guys from the 10/30 RAW show do the signing in NYC on 10/29 and then head to Maryland for RAW on 10/30 rather than doing the signing, going home and then flying to RAW. (Smackdown has a house show on 10/30 in North Carolina, so it's possible, I guess, that they'd send a wrestler to NYC and then fly them to NC the next day. But I think it'll probably be RAW talent since they have Ambrose, Rollins, Braun and Bliss.) They're really cutting it close with 32 days notice on even the date of the event, but I'm sure they'll sell out easily even if some people don't fly in for it.

Since we have a date, I moved it here.

I really can't fathom Alexa and Braun not being two of the names
