I predicted it would be on 10/19 since they are in the northeast that weekend. Even though I met her already for free last year, I wouldn't mind meeting Becky Lynch again if she is one of the stars. I need a posed pic as the one I have is over the table.

Isn't this thing really expensive?

If Becky Lynch does this her combo will probably be at least $100. Alexa Bliss was pushing 100 2 years ago, but it was a worth it to me as she was a big want for me. Yeah this show will be expensive no matter who shows.

It really isn't any more expensive than basic VIP guests at Axxess or meeting some of these wrestler at conventions when they first get released. You're best off buying the day tickets go on sale and getting the ticket where you meet everyone they're bringing in if you need them. I only went once. They usually have one or two I can use at best and I end up skipping it. The only two I still don't have from their past events are Lana and Moxley.

Plus you don't have to pay for admission on top of paying to meet the wrestler(s). Then again they charge more here than what one would pay to meet certain people at a convention. You're right about paying right away. For Alexa two years ago, I got the tickets the first day they went on sale and it was almost 100. As time went on, her price went up to well over 100.

The only time I can remember a wrestler's price going down as it got closer to the show was Big Cass. The one time I went, the lines were really long. I got the VIP with one auto and one photo from each for CM Punk, AJ Lee and Mistico / Sin Cara. The price / experience was better IMO for Adventureland signings, but here you get up to six wrestlers vs one or two (if you actually need them). Con prices are nuts -- at least near me. Sarah Schreiber is coming to a con for a $50 combo (or $44 in advance). Indy wrestlers are $20 to $30 combos when you could get them for free or close at indy shows. I don't think they charge more at this than at conventions (if they did them) or at Wizard World type shows. Certainly a couple years after they've been released it'd be cheaper to get them at cons though. Moxley is $80 to $130 for a combo now. He'll be $90 in Rhode Island but you have to pay at least $30 for admission on top of that.

This is a good deal if you need at least two of the wrestlers they have or if you're happy to meet anyone and everyone on the WWE roster. My want list is pretty limited so I usually don't end up going. But I'd like to if they have people I still want to meet.

Well last year Roderick Strong's combo was 60 at RSF. At the Indy show in Queens he was 30. Also I believe they charged more for Kurt Angle than what you'd pay at a convention. Those are just two examples.

Another thing that's annoying about this event is that they charge sales tax and a shipping fee to send you the tickets if you pre-order (which is almost a necessity because the prices continue to go up as the event approaches). I looked up my order from 2016 and all-in it was $132.50 for a Bayley combo and a second autograph. I get that the pricing is not dissimilar to lower level VIP ticket at an Axxess, but at least that is a pro photo opp instead of the bad overhead lighting in Caroline's that causes shadows and you still have the opportunity to run around during the rest of that Axxess session and get other people.

The only positive is that if you need a second autograph, the add-on ticket is about $10 cheaper than the original.

Typically I end up wishing they have nobody I need since the weather seems to be cursed for this event and it’s always a miserable day.

It really is! When I went for Alexa, I believe there was a hurricane somewhere and we felt the remnants.

I can’t forget one of the CM Punk RSF, I believe 2015, where it was snowing while we waited to get in. In event news, WWE just announced Raw from Nassau Coliseum on 11/4, which probably means it will be a RSF of Raw talent.

That was 2011. On October 29, 2011 we had a snowstorm and exactly one year later it was hurricane sandy.
