Welcome back to another entry in my “A look back at the hobby in the 90s” series. Today, we’re going through Wrestling Observer Newsletters from 1994 and taking a look at what was happening in the pro wrestling autograph/convention hobby. This is actually a fairly significant year as the first ever Axxess would be held prior to WrestleMania.

Welcome back to a new entry in my “A look back at the hobby in the 90s” series. Today, we’re going through Wrestling Observer Newsletters from 1992-1993 and taking a look at what was happening in the pro wrestling autograph/convention hobby. Click here if you missed the first entry in the series, a look back at 1991.

Nearly a decade ago, a Marked Out forum user made an interesting post. He comprised a list of wrestlers who had rarely (if ever) pariticipated in a wrestling convention/autograph signing. He dubbed this “the Savage Realm” as Randy Savage was essentially MIA before his untimely death.
As I was looking through the post, it made me regret not taking up this hobby sooner because I missed out on some pretty great names.
With that post in mind, I eventually made my way to F4W and Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter archive. They have a search engine within the archive and decided to do a very general for search “autograph.” The results went as back as far back as January of 1991 and, to my pleasure, I found a couple of hobby-related stories that made their way to the WON.
I’m going to summarize those stories from 1991 and might continue going back through the years to see how the hobby was evolved. If you haven’t already, I HIGHLY suggest that you subscribe to F4W because Meltzer’s Newsletter archive is a goldmine.
