Not likely. They've struggled for weeks to draw, for Raw, Smackdown, and even PPVs.

I'm interested in the Hell in a Cell turnout. New downtown arena and it's HiaC.

Usually a large walk up crowd, which drives them nuts. I know a few people with tickets and more planning on going.

They usually hype WWE when it comes to Metro Phoenix since it's a strong wrestling town however until I saw the graphic on the screen at the start of Smackdown Live, I wasn't aware they were even in town, especially since most of the shows are in downtown where it's accessible easily with public transportation and lots of freeways. Glendale's arena while being across from University of Phoenix Stadium (Cardinals) has not much in the way for the working class to get there cheap and or easy. Last show in Phoenix drew a big crowd.

As I said before, there was really no local advertisement about the show. Maybe the WWE is trying to cut cost by forgoing the advertising just like getting rid of the pyro entrances during the shows :tickled:

They struggled to draw in Los Angeles for a major PPV. Not saying the shitty Glendale situation didn't have an impact, but the problem is the product.

They intentionally killed the momentum of everybody in the entire company except Reigns, Lesnar (who Reigns will kill at Mania), and Jinder Mahal, whom everybody in the entire world wants off their television screen.

AJ Styles is in there with the scrubbiest scrubs they can find. Fucking Baron Corbin?

Kevin Steen is feuding with a god damn middle aged executive that JUST finished a feud with AJ Styles.

Sami Zayn is a straight up jobber at this point

Shinsuke Nakamura is just there so other wrestlers can say racist shit about him

Dolph Ziggler has always been horrible, but he somehow gets worse every year

Every single PPV, all the women are thrown in a random ass match together that doesn't matter and makes no sense

With Jeff Hardy hurt and Gallows and Anderson jobbing it up, there is only one real tag team in the whole promotion (New Day). Rollins and Ambrose are just another prop to help Reigns get over, Rhino and Slater are MIA, Sheamus is still unwatchable and Cesaro got his teeth smashed in.

WWE is finally reaping what it has sowed. They deserve even fewer people than they got.

One day after Bryan Alvarez reported Vince McMahon was pissed off about Bullet Club showing up outside Raw to shoot an episode of their web show...

After months of joking about it, and just one day after Bullet Club “invaded” Raw, WWE sent The Young Bucks an ACTUAL cease and desist letter over the “Too Sweet” hand gesture.

Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed WWE reached out to the popular Ring of Honor/NJPW tag team to say they own the copyright to the “Too Sweet” hand gesture and have discovered that the brothers have been using it in other companies, as well as on merch.

Therefore, WWE is demanding the Bucks stop using WWE intellectual property in-ring and on any merchandise immediately. If not, they may be hit with $150K in damages or more.

They also want an agreement in writing saying the brothers wont use WWE IP again in the future.

It’s unclear at this point whether The Young Bucks plan to fight this, but sources tell us they’ve consulted with a lawyer and will figure out what’s best in the days to come.

Honestly, if Vince sues them it will be good for Bullet Club. Obi-Wan Kenobi moment... if you strike the Young Bucks down, they shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine

Should have just ignored it, acted like it wasn't even a big deal

Vince, old man...

Pot.

Kettle.

Black.

He really needs to get a life outside of the WWE but we all knows he'll control its downfall and knowing him, he'll try and control it after he dies :p

Of course the faces weren't animated in Impact, but that was nine fucking years ago and it was fucking TNA

The TNA one looks like a render they falsely advertised. Not in-game.

Some asshole charged the ring at an NXT house show last night and ended up getting kicked in the face by Kyle O'Reilly. Man, I wish it were on film.

That shit never works out.

At WM3 a guy jumped in the ring and shook Roddy Piper's hand. The second security got a hold of him, they beat his ass right in front of everyone.

How about those idiots that stormed the ring when the nWo formed? They were so mad they were gonna try to fight them.

Like, what the hell are you going to do if you get into a ring with Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Hulk Hogan? Before they were all ancient and immobile?

That is one reason that I like going to live shows. Because you realize that there are people out there that thing that the shit is real.

I don't mean fans pretending it's real (Like Colt Cabana at WM 13), People that think it's like for real real.

Apparently Raw is in Denver tonight. I would never have known except I clicked on an unrelated story that happened to also include a blurb about it.

Spoiler:
You bought tickets
Spoiler:

Spoiler:

Big news

Ring of Honor's Global Wars Chicago show will be a live iPPV, $19.99

But the Columbus and Pittsburgh stops will also be streaming live, for FREE if you're a Ringside Member

If you're not a member then the shows will be $14.99-$19.99 on tape delay, but you can be a Ringside Member for 8 bucks a month (or less if you buy a yearly subscription), so you can easily just subscribe, watch both shows, and cancel if you want

WWE's CEO is BFFs with Trump.

There are basically zero wrasslin' promotions out there that you could watch if you're going to be limited by the politics of their parent companies.

I'll get around to post the HitC results by tomorrow. Only the tag team titles changed hands.

EDIT: Apparently the US title also has a new champion. Same old Women's and WWE Champ...

As I expected good crowd and pretty vocal.

Baron won the US belt pinning Tye Dillinger in a last minute 3 way.
