I made it to Boston earlier this afternoon via train, and MAN I'm glad we did it that way, more comfy, roomy and casual. Loved it. Boston is freezing though
As for Mania weekend, it was EPIC. I got around 14 hours of sleep between Saturday and Tuesday morning, cos I had two morning Axxess sessions. The travel back from Mania was fucking ridiculous, we didn't get back to our hotel until 3:30am. It was a major clusterfuck, and one of the things we all suggested at the focus group was BUSES TO MANIA cos I have never had an experience like it, especially when it began raining when we were in the line for the train to Secaucus.
But my seats for all the events were excellent, we had good people in our section who were respectful and didn't stand up all the time and get in the way. I felt I could see better this year than any other, especially at Mania itself, and I was one row further back than 2018. Go figure
Hotel WWE picked was great, I liked it a lot. Too bad the subway station closest to it that went to Barclays was closed all weekend for maintenance so we had to go to 42nd Street instead
That's the second time we've been to a WWE weekend in NYC where that's happened haha.
I loved meeting Dean & Seth at Axxess, was worth the early wake up calls. Both of them were great, I gave them both the beanies I bought, and they both had the cutest reactions - Dean said he'd need it cos it's cold and windy while Seth seemed genuinely thankful
Also got hugs from them both too <3 Rest of Axxess was meh though, I'd either met them already or didn't care. I wanted to meet Travis Banks but they closed the line he was in at 11:15, 45 minutes before the end of Axxess :/
I did meet some cool people at the reception before HOF (Naomi & Baron Corbin - Naomi said I had cool hair and Corbin was really cool), the museum trip (Ivory and Ricky Steamboat - Ivory chatted to everybody for ages and Ricky wrote a personal autograph with everyone's name) and the focus group (a woman from WWE dropped in and brought Sin Cara and we got pics with him).
I also had a blast chatting to all sorts of people throughout the weekend, especially the people from my travel package. I also had a bunch of people recognise me from WF saying "are you Ambrose Girl?"
I always love when that happens! Hi to everyone I ran into!
Dean's farewell from Raw was one of my favourite parts, even though I cried throughout the entire thing. The moment Seth called Roman out to the ring I knew it was coming and I just started crying. I'm so happy I was there for it though and I got to hear Dean speak and then see the boys fist bump in person one more time <3
Overall, it was an incredibly enjoyable Mania minus a few tiny things.
