  1. My mistake, the cheapest tickets are £75 (plus a £8.75 booking fee, so £83.75). That's still a hell of a lot though. At UFC 105 four years ago, the same seats in the same building were £40, the the card had Couture vs Vera, Bisping vs Kang and Hardy vs Swick.

  2. Yeah I got it from Amazon, I got "Long Days and Short Pays" at the same time.

    For any UKers that interested, it was quite a bit cheaper ordering them from amazon.com than it would have been ordering them from Crowbar Press. Postage was less than $8 combined compared with $20+ from Crowbar.

    I got "Drawing Heat" and "Long Days and Short Pays" today. Anyone else read them?

     

    If it's Drawing Heat by Larry Matysik, I have. I hated it. It was 90% him complaining about modern wrestling, mostly.

     

     

     

    Consequently, I'm currently reading the E's version of The Rise And Fall of ECW. Now I am by no means an ECW expert or a fan when it was around, but it seems like there's a lot of inaccuracies in it. For example, they claimed that Shane Douglas won the WWF TV Title in 1992. Also, some of the photos identify the wrong wrestlers.

     

    It's not Matysik's book, it's another book by Jim Freedman. Originally published in 1989 but recently republished by Scott Teal and Crowbar Press.

  4. WTF is going on with international football tournaments? If Qatar can't host the World Cup in it's usual June-July slot then they should never have been given the tournament in the first place. Did they state this when they bid for it? The world cup in winter is a completely fucking stupid idea.

     

    And don't even get me started on Euro 2020 being held in thirteen cities in thirteen countries. Another fucking idiotic idea.

  5. Would WWE ever release a Sgt Slaughter DVD set? It's be pretty great if they did, the feud and matches with Patterson from early 80s WWF, the feud with he and Kernodle vs Steamboat and Youngblood from JCP, back to WWF and his feud with Iron Sheik and the whole patriotic gimmick, GI Joe tie in, his run in AWA, then his heel turn and world title run in WWF. I see him as one of the few classic guys they have left who they could produce a marketable DVD of. Duggan would be another one.
