Even after a good night’s sleep, we weren’t really jumping out of bed this morning. It took a couple of alarms and an AM engagement to get us moving. I had a bit of a sore throat that I attribute to all the air conditioning and canned air. Fingers crossed.
Finally, after showering and prepping (I even put on makeup), we walked back over to the WWE Fan Expo/Super Store for our date with my favourite superstar, Lacey Evans.
I was pretty nervous about this. I wasn’t sure I’d like it. I knew she’d call me a nasty and I didn’t know what I’d say back. As it turned out, we were the last ones to see her before the end of her session and she was really great. She plays up her character perfectly, but you can see that she is a sweet, smart and damn strong woman underneath all that. She asked where we were from and what we were doing there. She made us use hand sanitizer before we got up close to her and she signed some photos for us. It was pretty fun.
Since we had two photos and decided to do them together, we weren’t sure what to do with the second one. I suggested she give Kevin her patterned Woman’s Right and she agreed!
From there, we decided to hit up the breakfast place back at our hotel.
After our meal, we went for a wander around town, looking at different shops and sights. I was looking for some echinacea just in case it wasn’t just irritation and I’d actually caught some kind of bug in our travels. I found some along the way. We also found Sweetery, Toronto’s Sweets Festival. It’s no secret that I am a sucker for pretty looking doughnuts and it got the best of me again today.
I present to you, the Cookie Monster from All You Knead bakery.
That’s a cookie dough filled doughnut right there. It was good, but after six months away from sugar, I have to admit that I’m just not that into I anymore.
We had made a lunch date with Kevin’s cousin Dean so we had to go back over to near where our hotel is to meet him. We ate at Jack Astor’s and then took him over to the WWE Super Store to show him all the belts. Somewhere along the way, we were able to convince him to join us for some wrestling and come to NXT Takeover tonight.
In another incredible I can’t believe this happens to us turn of events, we inherited seats in row two on the floor for tonight’s action! Somebody had them, then decided they didn’t want to go so they gave them to us. We spent the first half of the show in our original seats and then the second half on the floor.
We had a great time all night. It’s such a fun way to immerse yourself in something totally unreal and just have some fun.
Our final stop of the night is a comedy show featuring – you guessed it – another wrestler, Dolph Ziggler. I’m a big fan of his in the ring and I’ll just bet he’s hilarious. Since we’ll be hopping over to that event right after NXT and he isn’t scheduled to be done until after midnight, I’ll have to sign off on this post and report back about it tomorrow. Stay tuned!
