I arrived at the Wrestling Universe shortly before 3:30 PM. I purchased two extra Ron Simmons autographs – only $10 each! – and headed to their corner comic store, which already had a fair amount of people waiting in line.
After about a 15 minute wait, it was my turn. Up first was D’Lo Brown, a first time meet for me. He was really nice. Funny story: he saw Dolph Ziggler’s autograph and couldn’t believe how bad it was! He showed it to Simmons, who said “it looks like a damn map!” Hilarious. D’Lo signed all of his entries in the Encyclopedia before posing for a pic.
Next was Ron Simmons, who was really nice. He, too, signed all of his entries in the Encyclopedia as well as my WrestleMania XX program and my WWE Ultimate Superstars Guide.
Simmons was pretty adamant that nobody record anything during the signing. A father even asked Simmons if he could record Simmons doing the “DAMN!” but Simmons politely declined. He offered to whisper it in the kid’s ear but was not going to say it out loud and sure as heck was not going to be recorded doing it.
