Triple H will be signing copies of his book at RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, CT Thursday from 7-9. I haven't read his book, and I doubt I will, but a friend of mine really wants to go get a signature, so I'm going with him. I think I may have a Jaks figure or something, so I'll see if I can get that signed.

Anyway, does anyone have a serious question they'd like me try to squeeze in? I'm sure I can't get in anything in depth, but I may be able to get off one quick question.

Think I should try bringing a pane of ceiling glass for him to sign?

Stolen from a friend:

Bring a disposable camera and take a picture with him. Then say "Wait, I'm not supposed to like you. Boo!" And then throw the camera against the wall.

A friend of mine met him here at a book signing in Nashville. He said that Trips was extremely polite and was more than happy to take a picture with him.

Ask him if he noticed the cameraman on RAW this past week when he was revealing his diabolical plans.

Some of these suggestions are serious enough that they won't get you kicked out of line...

Ask him when's the last time he talked to his friend, Droz.

Or, ask if he's had a chance to watch Chyna on the Surreal Life 4, and if so, was she that much a drunken basket case when they were together?

Ask him if Vince's grapefruits are really that impressive.

Ask him what he thought was the worst angle he's been in for his career - was it Katie Vick, or the non-payoff for the Angle-Steph-HHH love triangle? And was the best DX or Evolution?

Ask him if he's enjoying the Batista build angle, and if he is at all bothered by the lazy cop-out of the invisible camera. To paraphrase CRZ in the raw thread, does he think fans are either a) happily insulted or b) too dumb to realize they've been insulted?

Ask him if he thought Mick Foley did more for his career than HBK?

Ask him who he thought he's buried the most? Jericho, Booker T, RVD, Kane, Steiner, Test, Eugene, X-pac, etc.

Ask if his book is coming out in audio version, and if he's going to do the recording with as many pauses as he makes in his 20 minute ring monologues...

Ask him if he's bothered that many internet fans think he's not as good as he once was, or if they think he's monopolized the booking by marrying the boss's daughter. He may be good, but he's not that damned good that we don't get tired of him.

Every non-WWE interview I've seen him in he has appeared to be a nice enough guy, who loves the business and often has a lot of fun while he's entertaining. For that, I'd be sure I said "Thank-you" to him, not just for his autograph, but for the years of entertainment.

A lot of too-old-now's questions could work. The Chyna question might get a laugh, and I'd be interested to hear his reaction to the "worst angle" question.

The only thing is that he probably doesn't have a lot of time for each person, so I'm not sure he'd be willing to get into a conversation like that.

UNLESS you are willing to fork over major $$$$ to buy ten copies of his book to have him sign each one.

Somehow, I think I'm pretty sure what his answer would be to that, and mine would probably be exactly the same.

I let my friend go alone. They were being ridiculous at the door. The only way to get in was to buy a copy of his book at that location. They weren't letting you in with copies of his book purchased elsewhere or with magazines or action figures. Oh well.

Anyway, the book store is in town and they always have a bunch of extra copies signed when an "author" swings by, so if anyone's interested and can't find a signed copy elsewhere, PM me and I'll see if I can hook you up.

Here in Houston, they let you bring anything, as long as it was WWE related. So people brought DVDs, Magazines, etc. but you could only get one thing signed. Maybe it is based on the individual bookstore on what you can have him sign.

Yeah, it tends to be store policies on that front, although the publisher will sometimes make stipulations as well. It's not uncommon to have a store request that those wanting autographs to have purchased the book there at the store. After all, that's the main reason to have a signing at the store - to make sales.

Ask him if he knows what Lita did to piss off Matt Hardy so much that he took her pics down from his website and stated on there that fans who see Lita should go up to her and ask her what she did. :)
