From Jeffrey Sarver:
I had the pleasure of going to both the Chris Jericho f.y.e. autograph signing and sat front row at the San Antonio Freeman Coliseum show tonight.
Lets start with the signing. We got there and was informed that we had to buy the latest Fozzy CD to get a wristband for Jericho to autograph anything. I thought we, me and my 8 y.o. son, were lucky because they only had one cd left. To ensure my son had something a bit more kid friendly, having never listened to Fozzy, I also bought WM25 so he'd have something to keep. When we finally got to see Jericho, an associate named "Joseph" proceeded to tell me that only one of us could meet Jericho because we only bought one cd. When explained that we bought an additional item and asked to explain why an 8 y.o. would have to buy a cd, he responded that it was corporate policy. Meanwhile Jericho sat and watched this all go down. After a quick Sophie's Choice, I decided to let my son meet Jericho, who kindly signed both items. Before I left I asked for f.y.e.'s corporate number and was given an out of service number by "Joseph".
As for the show at the Freeman, there was seven matches and the arena was about half full with maybe 30% of the cheap seats filled. I was in the front row across from the ramp and was part of a very obnoxious, very pro-heel row. They gave us the opportunity to vote on Fandango and Kofi Kingston having either a match or a dance-off (wild guess what we got). We were also informed that Cena was not there, but the house PA system that they used was so poor that it was hard to make anything said on the mic out.
Usos v. Harper and Rowan for WWE Tag Team Championship
Usos were very over with everyone but us and fed off the crowd. Harper and Rowan managed to keep Usos grounded, despite teasing the crowd with the twin plancha which the Wyatts walked up the ramp to avoid. In the end the Usos pick up the clean win and retain the belts.
The Miz v. R-Truth
I saw a tweet earlier talking about Dolph Ziggler and the Miz in San Angelo so maybe someone on the @wwe account forgot where the Miz was going to be tonight. The match had a slow start with the Miz protecting his face throughout the match. Miz wins with a roll up.
Fandango v. Kofi Kingston
Well we didn't get the match we wanted, so Fandango started the dance-off with our row all urging him to twerk. Afterwards Kofi attacked him yelling that he didn't want to dance over and over. The ref was able to hold Kofi back long enough for Fandango to start to head to the back when Bo Dallas's music hit to a pretty good pop. He said something that I couldn't make out to Fandango then headed to the ring and challenged Kofi to a match.
Kofi Kingston v. Bo Dallas
My row were all Bolievers, and were rooting for a Bo Dallas victory. After Bo took a lap for doing something good, Kofi rolled him up, grabbed the tights and got the three. Afterwards Bo Tebowed it out.
Bray Wyatt v. Chris Jericho
Bray has a bit of a different entrance from what is on TV and I'm sorry to say that I'm a huge Wyatt Family mark. Jericho, lightbright jacket and all, came out to the biggest pop of the night so far. My row decided to side with Wyatt and among the jeers was a pretty funny comment comparing Fozzy to Nickleback. This was the match of the night in my opinion. Best part of the match was when Jericho was tossed out in front of us and Wyatt picked him up and asked me what I wanted him to do to him, which I requested for him to knock his teeth out. Bray obliged by sending Jericho face first into the barricade. The match ended when Wyatt called for Harper and Rowan to attack Jericho only to be stopped by the Usos. We finally got the twin planchas right in front of us with one of the Usos landing pretty awkwardly on his hand. Jericho hit the codebreaker for the win. After the match Jericho rolled out on our side to slap hands with the fans, but made sure to snub us stating, "don't even think about it" as he walked by.
