Dot Net reader Josh Rosenfeld attended the WWE Fan Axxess on Saturday night in New Jersey and sent the following report.
My son and I attended WrestleMania Fan Axxess last night at IZOD (Brennan Byrne) Arena. We got there at 5:45 and by I wanna say 5:55 volunteers were coming around for VIP ticket holders. General admission (which is what we had) were then brought in. We finally got in at 6:30 into the arena. I've never been to one so I had no expectations as to what would happen and when. When we got in the first thing we see is the grand merchandise shop. It was huge full of t-shirts, belts, wristbands, everything. Huge.
Then to the left was Dolph Ziggler, AJ Lee, and Big E signing. All autographs on the main level were for general admission and included in the ticket price. I have heard and read on your site how some of security was rather rude or discourteous with their dealings. My son and I dealt with none of that. All the staff we dealt with were up and up and professional. My only critique of the autograph signing was the lack of knowledge of who and when were to be where. If they listed the schedules of the superstars, it would be better worth to know whether we should have stayed in line or sat it out or not. So much to do in four hours, technically three and a half, but we had fun.
It was very well displayed giving they did this at an arena instead of a banquet hall, or something of that nature. Aidan had a blast and became a big fan of Kassius Ohno (Chris Hero) last night. Got to see him wrestle three times while we were there. He's gonna go far, in my opinion. If his mic work matches his ring work, he's gonna be a main eventer someday.
We would definitely do Axxess again. There is so much to do, unless you get tickets for all day, or three days, you won't get to it all in time. We hit the foam pit/ring and some of the other attractions. It was fun. I will say this to those with kids, HAVE PATIENCE. There are over a thousand people trying to do the same thing you are, not to mention you are bringing your young ones who are excited beyond belief to begin with, expect them to be jumpy, yell, have fun, and get a bit carried away. Its a sad thing when my nine year old looks at me and says "Why are they getting yelled at for having fun? I'm glad you are not like that."
