Toasterboy and Cman (or perhaps anyone else planning on going to that might know these answers to my questions):
So, if I understand it correctly, this year they are cutting down the number of autographs we as VIPS can get to 1/wrestler instead of the previous 2/wrestler that we got at both Wrestle Reunion 4 and at Wrestle Reunion 5?
And if you want another autograph it costs 50% of the price of what someone with a general admission ticket pays for that autograph?
And there is the build your own option, but will they let you trade a photo op for another autograph through that option since they said they are not offering photo only or autograph only options this year?
Sometimes on the WR website over the years for the previous 2 Wrestle Reunions in Los Angeles the admin has replied to questions by basically just saying that it has already been asked before. So I wanted to ask here first. But if nobody else here knows, I might ask the admin.
From what I read and understood they cut the autographs from 2 to 1 to save time for everybody, and with the build your own it will cut down on the huge lines they had the last two years. Here is part of the response from admin on how the build your own will work.
"With regards to Philadelphia, the build your own ticket allowed you to add only the photo ops and autographs that you wanted. They were added to your “basket” at a rate of 50% off what general admission holders would pay. There were (I think) 16 guests to choose from and you can put any combination of photo ops/autographs in any multiples you wanted in order to get to the $180 price threshold. For people that attend these signings regularly in the Northeast, its very hard to come up with wrestlers that haven’t been there before, so this was a way for people to only pay for those they wanted. Think of it like a buffet, you can take more of the items you want and pass on the items you don’t care for at all. This change over previous models also helped immensely in terms of people moving through the lines on most guests since not everybody had to stand and wait for every wrestler and it allowed you to “regroup” in terms of getting your items ready for autograph rather than going from one to the next virtually immediately."
I just saw on facebook, that Sal of Wrestlereunion is offering Warrior and Hogan $100,000 to split between them to show up at any of the WR's to sign autographs and have a one on one faceoff interview hosted by Bill Apter. He said all it takes is one of them to reject and the whole deal is off, but I would love to see them both at Wrestlereunion.
This is what the admin said about DGUSA replacing ROH at Wrestle Reunion 6 this year:
If you haven’t seen CIMA, Shingo, and Dragon Kid in person before, watching them on TV/DVD/internet just doesn’t do them justice.
For those of you that will inevitably ask, ROH will not be with us this year in Los Angeles. Their agreement from the previous year allowed them a “first right” of return. However, following the sale to Sinclair, the new management declined this year so they can focus on cities within their TV markets. We truly valued our partnership with ROH the last two years, they extended their strong brand to us when we had no previous history running a convention in California. ROH’s only other experience in California was a terrible situation in SanFrancisco, so we certainly are proud they took the “risk” with us.
That being said, we tried last year to bring Dragon Gate USA, ROH, and PWG together in a 3 day weekend. Reasons beyond our control prevented that from happening, but we honestly have been trying to work out a relationship with Dragon Gate now for two years and as they say, “where one door closes, another one opens”! We wish ROH the best of luck in 2012 and hope we’re able to work with them again but we’re equally proud to be partnering with DGUSA in 2012
Last year for ROH I sat in general admission, but I am buying a golden circle ticket as soon as they go on sale tomorrow!
