Axxess isn't just a bunch of old laundry, though. You can also get your photo taken in a casket underneath the Undertaker's logo and surrounded by his druids...

Also at Axxess, you could recreate a superstar's entrance, cut your own promo and have the video emailed to you, or get locked inside the shark cage that Paul Ellering and Chris Jericho were trapped in at different points last year. You could also step inside the Elimination Chamber, and take a photo of yourself in one of its pods.

Living legend Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat came out for an interview while Paste was at Axxess, where he discussed the 30th anniversary of his iconic WrestleMania III match with "Macho Man" Randy Savage, and touted Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt as the three current WWE wrestlers with the brightest futures. (Even at Axxess, the fans booed the mention of Roman Reigns.)

At Axxess we watched WWE UK Champion Tyler Bate defend his title against Joseph Connors, saw Akira Tozawa wrestle Ariya Daivari, and witnessed former indie star Crazy Mary Dobson work under her birth name Sarah Bridges against MaryKate. This stylish scamp here is Tyler Bate.

For most fans the main draw of Axxess seemed to be the autograph sessions. There are several WWE stars posted up at signing spots throughout the convention center, and they rotate out halfway through every Axxess session. Paste was there on a Saturday morning, and the stars who were signing included Cesaro, Summer Rae, Mark Henry, Dana Brooke, Curtis Axel, and Peyton Royce and Billie Kay. If you bought a VIP ticket you could meet Nikki Bella, and a Premium VIP ticket got you a brief moment with Roman Reigns. If you go next year, expect long lines, and keep that debit card nearby.
