Anybody got any experience with the paid-for Meet & Greet (wwe.com) activities that the E is promoting before PPVs?

I get the drift that they only have been trying this since WM, but at least one was cancelled due to lack of interest. I've also seen a price of $100 (on top of the ticket price). (If that's the actual price, I'd better get to paw at least 3 superstars of my choosing.) Now if the format were a full-on backstage pass, I could get into that in a big way. However, if it's "Y'all herd into this room, & we'll send in whatever midcarders we can coerce plus a few bimbettes" -- that'd be a pass.

Anybody know anything useful?

At the last two wrestlemanias I attended the meet & greets.
Lemme explain how things went:

WM20: We were ushered into a room, where 8 wrestlers were sitting behind a long table.
They signed a placemat we all received with the PPV logo and such.
I am not sure if I remember them all but the following people were there: Mick Foley, Dawn Marie, Eric Bischoff, Jacky & Rico..and some more.
There was time to chat a bit with them,depending on who felt like it (Foley chatted with a lot of people)
Tazz and JR were also around to talk to (they went up and down the line of people waiting)
After that, we got our picture taken with John Cena & Scotty 2 Hottie (a 18x10 glossy picture, we got to pick that one up the next day)
I know that there were several sessions that day with different superstars. (Another one had pictures with Benoit/Rey)

Wm21 was slightly different and slightly less 'worth it'
The superstars included Paul London (who wanted everyone to hold/touch his newly won CW title) Christian, Tajiri, Regal, Nunzio. Again some of them chatted easily (Christian, upon hearing I am from Holland explained what a dutch oven is)
The picture taken/received this year was a polaroid. So that was a big step back. (We had Dawn Marie & Tomko for our session)
The announcers to talk to were Tazz and Tod Grisham. (a nice guy btw. Laughed hard when I called him "Tod with the tough questions!")


Edit: Oh, if its $100 extra, I doubt I would go for it. It's fun but not that much fun. (for the WM package it was part of the standard deal)

Thanks, that's the kind of information I was looking for. It is definitely extra $$$ -- I'll probably contact them to find out, but it probably isn't worth it.
