Just like anyone else, fans wants to get WWE autographs of their favorite stars. Getting wrestling autographs is a little bit easier than getting the autographs of one’s favorite actor or singer, in the fact that wrestlers are much more open and approachable to their fans. Considering the fact that wrestling is performed lived in arena and stadiums, not taped on closed sound stages.
Generally there are five ways to get autographs: 1) Order autographs items straight from the promotion themselves 2) get them here on Wrestler Autographs via our partnership with eBay 3) attend a convention, whether it be a wrestling convention, pop culture convention, the San Diego Comic-Con, where wrestlers tend to do signing and appearances; 4) official signing set up by the wrestler themselves or the promotion they work for; the fifth way is to is attend an event and wait around after the show, and hope the wrestler you want to meet didn’t leave earlier after his match was over and that he stuck around and is in the mood to sign.
Again, getting the autographs is often easier than other entertainment, but getting the autographs often shows the true side of professional wrestling. A lot of times when it comes to getting WWE autographs you find the true nature of the person, not the nature of their wrestling character or persona. Often time, the Heels are open and apt to sign autographs than the Faces: the guys you are supposed to cheer and want the autographs of.
Take a look around online and check out videos recorded at convention, you’ll see most of them are with faces, which is quite telling. If they’re at a convention doing a signing, you’d think they be too busy to do an interview, especially at their table. Why are they doing the interview? It’s because most of the time they are not getting people asking for their autographs.
One of the reason for this is the face wrestler is charging for his autographs – even if you bring your own item – plus charging for the picture they have on their table. The Heels don’t seem to charge or don’t charge as often. It’s an interesting look into the true side of the industry when trying to get autographs: who is gracious in giving the autographs and who isn’t. Granted, there are always exceptions.
When it comes down to the business of getting WWE autographs, it seems the Heel appreciates things more, where the Faces take it for granted. Often you’ll find the roles are reversed in real life, the Heels are generally good people playing the bad guy. WWE autographs are plentiful--and reasonably priced.
