2 EVOLVE Releases - ROH Issues?, Y2J Note, & More
-- Phil Marquis sent this one in: I just returned from Chris Jericho's book signing in Mississauga, Ontario. The signing was scheduled to start at 1PM. I arrived at around noon and there were already lots of people. There was no bracelet system like I read from another book signing report. A clerk just gave sticky notes after writing whatever name you wanted Jericho to dedicate the book to. There was rock music playing and some guy was on the mic asking trivia questions and giving away gift cards. The guy on the mic announced that Smith Hart (Bret's oldest brother) was there and people had the opportunity to take pictures with him if they wanted to. The guy on the mic also stressed several times that this was a book signing and that there would be no pictures and you must have purchased the new book to get an autograph. Before the actual signing started a woman took the mic and told people that they, in fact, would take pictures. Jericho finally arrived at around 1:20PM. He took the mic and said something like, "Hey you guys have some rock music here! This is the probably the best place so far! Alright! Let's sign some books!" I'm pretty sure Chris Jericho was more than happy to sign whatever people brought, including his first book, magazines, action figures, and even some kid's forehead. In and out of the ring, Jericho keeps proving how awesome he is. Just before my turn came up, the rock music had changed to boring piano music so Chris Jericho got up, turned the music off and said "It was like a funeral home in here!" to the applause of the people waiting in line. Finally my turn came up and Jericho was really nice. He chit chats with you, asks you how you are, thanks you for coming and just genuinely seems happy to be there.
