    Yeah, Playboy HOF, but not WWE. ;) 

    I actually met her and Sable at a Tower Records signing when they did the Playboy spread together. Sable was really nice and sweet, but Torrie was just sort of there and wearing sweats like she just rolled out of bed; it was like she was only there to get paid and bounce.

    When I met Maria, she seemed to have the same attitude as how you described Torrie.

    Seth Rollins had the same attitude, sort of. I met him in Vegas over the weekend at a show. When I took a pic with him, he just sort of stood there apathetically like a statue. I expected him to be vibrant and full of energy and passion like "Seth Freaking Rollins," but he was just a regular guy that was being paid to make an appearance.

    When he showed up, someone shouted "BURN IT DOWN" and the rest of the crowd joined in with chants and applause, but he looked like he couldn't have cared less.

    Never have great expectations when you meet celebs... although Asuka was AWESOME and she doesn't even speak English.

    Samoa Joe finally has a strap on the main roster. Not the one he deserves, but the US belt will do for now. Maybe he can give it some credibility again

    Same for meeting AJ.

    Now granted, it was at an FYE and there were hundreds upon hundreds of people lined up. He could only sign what FYE gave you. You got one picture. Etc.... He didn't really say anything to anyone. Just sat at a table and held up the too sweet when it was time for a pic.

    I’ve ran into a couple of guys around here when shows come to town. Matter of fact one of our local comic shop owners is really good friends with Charles Robinson. And they worked out a deal where after a show he would open the shop up late night for the guys to come in and buy some stuff before they would leave. I was allowed to be there once. Met CM Punk there. Nice guy. You can tell these guys just need to decompress sometimes after having to be on such an emotional high while performing.

    Wow! That's the first time I heard/read someone say that Punk was a nice guy. I met him at SDCC and he was a prick. I have a few friends that could tell you similar stories about him being rude and condescending.

    I heard that Kevin Nash was known for being a prick, but when I met him, he couldn't have been more cool. My smartphone was acting up and freezing, so I had to reboot the damn thing, and he (along with Scott Hall and X-Pac) waited for the phone to restart to retake the photo.

    I met Daniel Bryan and Alicia Fox twice and they couldn't have been more nice and engaging. Balor was really cool when I met him several years ago, and at the time, I didn't really know who he was as I didn't watch NXT.

    I saw Booker T leaving the hall at SDCC and he stopped, put down his rolling luggage to shake my hand. I saw him at another event years later and I brought that moment up to him and mentioned how I appreciated that, and he said, "My mom taught me that it doesn't cost anything to be nice to people." Now that I think about it, I've probably met at least half of the superstars on the WWE roster. Most were really cool, like Miz, but there were a couple of standouts that were probably having a bad day or didn't care to be at the event, which sucks for the fans. Since I'm paying money, the least you can do is act like you want to be there.

    I mentioned this not too long ago, but probably the best experiences I've had meeting wrestlers were Victoria, Larry Zbyszko, and Jimmy Hart (not technically a wrestler, but close enough ;) ). Larry especially seemed genuinely thrilled and came out from behind his table to talk AWA with me. He treats you like you're an old buddy. Jimmy has a reputation of being one of the nicest guys in "the business".

    On the other end, at WrestleMania 27 Fan Axxess, Harley Race wasn't unfriendly or anything, just uninterested.
    I had hoped to get a chance to talk a little with Tommy Dreamer, but after my autograph and photo he immediately went back to his deep conversation with Mike Bucci/Simon Dean and Angelina Love. Again, not unfriendly, I just expected a bit more interaction.

    So in the last year, I have added to my personal list of things to "never do" for my own safety.

    1. Never get involved in a land war in Asia.
    2. Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line
    3. Never stiff/shoot on Haku or Brock Lesnar
    4. Never get into a Twitter war with Becky Lynch

    Any others?

    I'm glad Samoa Joe won the US title it was about damn time. It was cool that R-Truth had a nice run with it.

    Oh goody, Florida gets WrestleMania again next year. God forbid the west coast can get it more often.

    I’m hoping once the Vegas Raiders stadium is complete that Vegas gets WrestleMania one year and I can finally knock it off my bucket list.

    Los Angeles is also building a stadium for the Rams and Chargers. So there’s another potential future venue.
