A friend asked me about an autograph session and fees for wrestlers. 

They were looking to get Bruno, Steele and Zbyszko possibly in for an event (These are just some of the names they came up with after watching youtube). 

He said Bruno costs $5000.00 to show up.   Do the wrestlers also take 100% on signings?  How do you make your money at these events or is the $5000.00 basically an advertisement ploy and you eat the loss initially? 

I never went to one of these so I do not know if there is an admission fee, etc. 

Any help would be appreciated.

You have to pay to get in, you have to pay for autographs. The rassler shit heads are working for a pre determined amount of money. The guy putting together the event pays the rasslers and keeps the entrance fees, concessions and autograph money.

I have no idea how the promoters make any money.

We were thinking that the rassler would take a cut or all of money generated from the autographs for that day.  So, the photos themselves are probably something you would have to purchase as an expense, also or let the people bring what they want to be autographed.  So, the promoter of the event could ask any price for an autograph?

I have a few wrestling autos. Local Mall has a few wrestlers show up from time to time. They charge between 10-20 bucks plus a photograph fee. I usually have them sign a card so I bypass that fee

Wrestling Cow Palace convention about 15 yrs ago was 20 bucks to get in.
I think I got Zbyszko's for 15 bucks . Bockwinkle and Bastien gave me theirs for free.They were standing behind a CAC table and signed a flyer.
Snuka, Slick, Race, OMG,(and a few others I forgot ) you can buy a $100 ticket and you would get them all. Million Dollar man's Valet(I forgot his name) would give you an auto if you buy his action figure. Sandman looked kinda drunk so I skipped him.

Some wrestlers show up early and walk around the convention floor and they normally will give you one for free. I got Rock Riddle, Christian, and Tonga Kid as they were checking out tables. Christian was a good guy and went over to a few handicap fans and took pics for free.

My buddy is trying to raise money or foot traffic at the event having old Pittsburgh wrestlers at the community event. 

Bruno's asking fee is $5,000.00.  So, he called me and asked me how does the event recoup that money if possible. 

From what Ports had said, the autograph money/fee would go to the event.  I guess if you bring something to autograph it would be less of a fee compared to buying a photo to have it autographed. 

So, I think my buddy would have to pay Bruno his fee and then pick up the cost of a stack of photos for Bruno to sign.  I wonder if somebody like Bruno have their own photos for purchase or do you have to find a photo or photographer?

I am sure you cannot take another photographer's work and sell it.

Your friend could also include a fee for people to get their item personal item signed.

Thanks. He (We) are going into this blind. Do you think $5000 takes in transportation costs?

I have no clue how the promoters of these make money. Basically you have to hope that the wrestler "draws" at least what his asking fee is [yeah right] and pray pray pray that the weather cooperates.

You could hold separate raffle outside of just autographs/meet & greet. Not sure what prize could be but sell tix for raffle & raise extra cash

See if Bruno will donate back hair or David for raffle prize

I think Larry charges $500 plus trans and hotel. Bruno would probably come down some if he knew Larry was going to be there. It's a risky proposition though. I have no idea how successful they've been over the last decade.
