I attended the Glasgow leg of the Q&A tour Nash, Hall & Waltman are making of the UK. The event has caused a lot of controversy with fans booing, asking for refunds, and taking to social media to vent their fury.
The £30 ($50) event was scheduled to begin at 7.30, but by this time all the fans were still left squeezed into a small hallway and not allowed to take their seats.
The Q&A didn't begin until 8.30 and lasted only an hour. The host said Nash, Hall & Waltman would be back for 'Part 2' in 15 minutes, but after 15 minutes announced that the Q&A was over and the wrestlers wouldn't be coming back out for a part 2.
Many fans were infuriated with the high charges which were being applied to photographs and signatures, although some did say that if they asked the Wolfpack nicely they were willing to sign more items than the fans had paid for.
The wrestlers came over really well - all 3 were very funny and engaging during the hour long Q&A - however the promoters have been slammed for sneaking on last minute charges, and for cutting the Q&A session in half.
The promoters have been deleting posts on FB from customers unhappy with the event and from those asking for refunds. Several of the comments were advising how to obtain refunds through PayPal, or how to contact Trading Standards for refunds on cash tickets.
In light of a recent surge in former wrestlers coming to the UK for speaking tours this could mark a turning point, with fans now wary of cowboy promoters charging high prices and failing to deliver as advertised.
