…I attended the nXt event in Port Charlotte, FL with special guest Booker T.
The signing was scheduled to begin at 6:30, I arrived at 5:30 to the arena to make the line. At 6:30 on the dot the doors to the arena opened and we were all checked in with our tickets.
The setup was pretty cool they had the ring and the entrance area on one side and on the other side covered with curtains was the autograph signing area. On the way in I purchased a nXt program and a poster of Booker T, $15 total.
The line was not bad at all and people continued to file in. About 15 minutes into waiting in line all of a sudden you heard "can u dig it, Sucka!!!!!" and booker t song came on and one of the announcers introduced him to the fans. The line was moving pretty smooth and the nxt staff which are actually some of the wrestlers were pretty cool and even offered to find themselves on my program and give me an autograph just in case they ever make it. I wished them luck and then it was eventually my turn to meet Booker T.
He was really cool he asked how I was doing, we spoke for a quick minute while he signed my items and he posed with the signature "5time" pose and I thanked him for coming out to sign for the fans, he said "no man thank you for coming" which was pretty cool.
The wrestling matches were pretty entertaining, the ringside seats for $25 are unbeatable if you're in the Florida area. My favorite match of the night was Big E. Vs Bo Dallas(Bo Rotundo). Both guys looked good and I wouldn't be surprised to see either of them pretty soon on Smackdown. Also was surprised to see a guy that looked just like Dolph Ziggler and come to find out it was his brother.
I always check this site for the autograph signings update and I always enjoy reading about other peoples experiences at signings and events so I thought I would share mine.
