Meeting Shelton Benjamin – 8/14/15

Hey now.

The first autograph signing of a crazy week kicked off last night with a Shelton Benjamin autograph signing at the terrific Wrestling Universe from 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM. A very small window to make it to the signing from New Jersey but I was confident I could do it. I pre-ordered a more than reasonable $25.00 combo and made my way to Queens, NY.

Upon my arrival at approximately 7:45 PM, I was very surprised to see a decent line had formed outside of The Universe. Most signings at The Universe are ultra quick – your in and out – but tonight was an obvious exception with that strict 1-hour window.

I was about 15th in line but it moved very quickly and at around 8:00 PM I was brought to their back room where Benjamin was stationed. I’ve always heard great things about Benjamin so I was eager to meet him. Unfortunately, I found Benjamin to be very quiet. He greeted me with a polite smile and handshake before signing his three entries in the Encyclopedia – he signed it as “Shelton  B” – before we took our pic and I left.

Polite enough but I didn’t get that ultra outgoing, personable Benjamin that others have gotten in the past. Oh well, no biggie. Three signatures in the book and a pic for $25.00 is a win in my book. Pictures below:
