Craig Smith sent the following....I attended the Jericho book signing at the Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, AZ. I had to wait about two hours to meet Chris and get some autographs and picture. He also took time to answer a few questions like the secret to arm wrestling (which you'll have to ask him) and some Fozzy questions. I guess they are already working on new songs for the next album. Jericho had a few 5 hour energy drinks and a red bull so I imagine his schedule is hectic. He is heading to Dallas, TX tonight. There were probably several hundred people at the signing. Jericho stayed until he had gotten to everyone. It was good having Jericho back in AZ again, since WM 26 last year.

About 500 fans turned out for Shawn Michaels' autograph session yesterday at the 2011 ATA Trade Show in Dallas, TX. Michaels will be signing 3/12 in Middletown, NY. For details, visit www.NortheastWrestling.com.
