The StubHub Store in Manhattan, NY will be hosting a free signing w/WWE Women’s Champion Carmella from 7-9 PM – and wristbands are already being given out and they’re going FAST.
They will lineup people based off the number on their wristband from 6:15-6:30 PM. Carmella will be signing 1 item and photo ops are NOT guaranteed. There’s also no guarantee of meeting her if you arrive after 7 PM as she has a “hard out” at 8PM.
I arrived at the Wrestling Universe just before 12:30 PM and was a bit surprised by two things:
1). The duel signing wasn’t being held at their comic book store
2). A decently sized line had formed outside the Wrestling Universe

The 26th Legends of the Ring followed an all-too-familiar pattern:

· A breeze through the vendor room
· A soul-crushing wait through the second block of the Superticket
I’ll get to the terribly long wait – and everything else – later in the report.
I want to start off by giving my appreciation to the friends I have made, and continue to make, in this hobby. I chatted with Marked Out’s own Crossfire, who’s always fun to chat with it. I also spent most of the day with my friends Mark and Gene; Mark actually surprised me with the paperback edition of the WWE 50 book, which was beyond generous. I later ran into Kevin, who is kind of enough to tell me that he’s looking forward to reading my reports.
The coolest moment for me, though, was when someone tapped me on the shoulder and said, “You’re ICW right? From Marked Out!” As it turns out, this person, who’s also named Kevin, said he flew out all the way from Chicago to attend this show after reading my reports! That was truly something else to hear! It was truly awesome meeting you, Kev, and I was truly blessed to spend parts of my day with the other fellas.
It was also awesome running into Ron, who always reads my reports. Good seeing you, Ron!
And now…onto the report.
