On September 21, 2017, I made that favorite little drive over to Bookends for former WWE Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair. Charlotte co-authored a book, Second Nature, with her father, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, whose health prevented him from the book tour. They advertised posed photos and no signed memorabilia, however I brought along my Wrestlemania 29 program just in case. When I got to the store, they advised me to fetch it from the car, as there was the possibility she would indeed sign extras.
Charlotte came in, started quickly, did nice poses, and signed extras!!! A number of us had extras, but not everyone, which kept the line moving. As is the standard for WWE superstars, extra time was spent with the children attendees, but I support that as I was once a kid attending Bookends signings to meet my favorite superstars.
As a little throwback, here’s me with Ric Flair, at Bookends, back in 2005. Talk about coming full circle…
I may not be the avid WWE viewer that I once was, but I love it when Bookends brings in active WWE superstars, because it never disappoints. Hope to attend another one soon!!!
First off, I must note I have been very neglectful the past two months. Started a new job in June and have not had much time for the computer. However, I have been able to squeeze in a few autograph signings.
Back on June 20th, I took the short ride to Nielsen Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in East Hanover to see one of the most legendary figures in WWE, “The Nature Boy” Ric Fair, 16x World Heavyweight Champion and Hall of Famer. The signing was to begin at 3:00 PM, and I arrived quite early at 12:30 to meet up with friends and ensure we had a good spot on the line. Luckily, the signing was inside and we weren’t stuck outside in the rain. Flair arrived promptly and signed two items and posed for a photo with all of the attendees, I hear there were 600. I brought along my WrestleMania 29 program and also had one of the free 8x10s signed. It was nice to see Flair again, it’s been I think 10 years since I saw him last. And for free!!! I believe his show price is around $50.
