Earlier today, PWInsider.com reported that Ric Flair appeared disinterested in signing autographs for fans at the recent House of Hardcore 2 event, and the following live account of Flair's presence has been sent to WZ by reader Bobby:
Whoever reported earlier might have gotten there to meet Ric later than I did. I was there at 4:30 and expected doors to open at 5:00. The door was open for the line for Ric Flair and wasn't a long wait. He showed up early at 4:45 and the line moved well. He spent time with each person talking about their items. When I got up to him he was seated next to Fifi but paid little attention to her except when an unusual or an item he hasn't seen in a while came up to be signed he would turn to her and say remember this? He spent about 5 minutes with me and my son as I explained to him that I had missed his signings 2 times prior. Once at TNA and just this last Axxess. He said he was sorry we missed each other but glad he got to sign for me this time. He spoke to my son asking him questions and we left. We then had to wait to go in for the other wrestlers for the meet and greet. Those doors opened later about 5:30 when we got in we went straight to Terry Funk and to my surprise James J Dillion was next to him. I was surprised no one seemed to recognize him ( pretty sad ) but I did and took a picture of him at the table. He was there til about 6- 6:15 when he left. It was at that point when I believe he went out to sit with Ric but I believe he did so as no one wanted a pic or signature from him and he looked bored. Morrison had a decent line and spent at least 10 minutes with us talking about this and that but by far Terry had the longest line. Rick and Scott Steiner had a few people trickle up to them for pics and autographs. Carlito and MVP had about the same amount of people as Morrison.
