NXT in Baltimore, MD

Post by adelta13 » April 21st, 2018, 1:34 am

This past Thursday I was off work and I was aware of a mass NXT flight heading into my area so it was a no-brainer to do it. I wake up around 8:30am with Class meeting up at my house. We head to the spot early, but Class insisted on getting breakfast at his favorite breakfast place. We get to the airport around 10:00am and waited for about 15 minutes before we saw our first wrestler. Before we could ask anyone, we got a lecture from an WWE employee about just not going up to them from the behind. First up was Kairi Hojo, we asked her and she looked at the guy. He said it's up to you then she does it! Next up was Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler, who was very nice! Next up was Ricochet who was kinda standoffish but he did it. I then got photos with Kassius Ohno, Lacey Evans, and referee Jessika Carr. I then got an updated photo with Tommaso Ciampa. I then approached Velveteen Dream aka Patrick Clark for a photo but he quickly says "NO!". Not sure if he's just a straight up dick or if he's playing up to his persona. Luckily I already have him. I then get photos with Bianca Belair and Montez Ford. I then get an updated photo with EC3 aka Derrick Bateman! I then get a fresh shot with Johnny Gargano, updated photo with Gunner, I told Gunner I met him before at the Bound For Glory 2011 weekend in Philly, and told him I enjoyed his role in Game Night! I then get an updated shot with Steve Corino, a fresh shot with NXT Champion Aleister Black, and Nikki Cross. I then got a fresh shot with Norman Smiley, an updated Jeremy Borash, and a fresh shot with Kayla Braxton! I then got an updated shot with Shayna Blazer, a fresh shot with Candice LaRae and Oney Lorcan.

Still need Norman Smiley. One thing I have to note, the wrestler names keep getting dumber! Ricochet, I guess that one is alright.

Good stuff.

Norman needs to do a convention.

I, too, had a bad experience with Patrick Clark after an NXT house show in Asbury Park. There was a handful of people waiting by the buses and most of the NXT wrestlers came over and gladly took care of everyone. Clark, who had just started doing the Velveteen Dream gimmick IIRC, doesn't just blow us off - he CURSES so loudly that it upset the kids. He didn't care and just went into the bus.

I think it was him doing his gimmick but the cursing was...weird?

Awesome report and pics dude...Great job and thanks for sharing!

Patrick Clark is the absolute worst. Not only does he turn fans down, but he is completely rude about it. I get it is their right to sign or take pics. But I've seen him be downright nasty to people for no reason.

I get being in "gimmick" but when you are VERY rude to kids, one on one, that's taking it entirely too far in my humble opinion.

I've heard Patrick Clark was even a dick when he started in MCW. I guess I'll only ever get him at a WWE signing or a convention when he is released. He was literally the only blow off on his mass flight.

First time I ever met him he wouldn't do it at all, then I met him at some softball event couple years ago. He couldn't of been any nicer and I asked him like hey man why didn't you do it when I met you couple months ago at ROH, and he's like "Oh I wasn't suppose to be there because I was under contract with WWE"... Then I met him again after that and he was nice. So maybe it's a gimmick thing

Doing good. Should have told me you were going to Wrestlemania. I had the NXT flight both coming in and leaving.
