    Blowout Cards

Wrestlemania 25 Fan Axxess Pictures (56K Warning!!)

Posted by houstoncollector on April 12, 2009

So last week I was able to go to Houston to attend Wrestlemania weekend as THQ’s guest.  This is what is known as a media junket, and is pretty much completely a fluff thing.  Admittedly, I did do some interviewing and will be writing an article, so it’s not completely without some sort of merit.  

I guess in the sports card blog world, it’d be like Upper Deck flying someone to the National.  At any rate, about 50 Press were invited, and this is apparently something that THQ does every year.   Friday was spent at WWE Axxess, featuring a number of group interviews with various WWE Superstars and Legends, and then a video game competition between the Superstars and Legends on WWE Legends of Wrestlemania.  

I took a lot of pictures, 140 of which I’ve kept.  Now keep in mind, this is using a 7 megapixel point-and-shoot camera, so there’s nothing fancy here.  I’ve tried to clean these up as much as I can using GIMP, but I’m not exactly good at photo editing, so don’t expect a miracle.  

More (with a lot of pictures) after the cut:

Highlights?  Well, here’s some of the people we were able to interview:

Shad from Cryme Tyme

"The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and Sgt. Slaughter

Then we have the highlights from the WWE Fan Axxess event, where I was able to get very close to the Superstars, although not as close as I did Saturday!

    Sounds good. I still need to finish the Sunday pictures, but a lot of them aren’t as good a quality, because I was using a standard point and shoot camera and for the most part, was a long away away. 😉
