  1. Assuming (hoping) we get Banks & Bayley vs Sky Pirates, what would be the appropriate venue? Nxt tv would feel too “small time” for this match imo. Takeover would be good, but if they stick with a five match format Bayley and Banks would be “taking someone’s spot” right? Raw is frightening because the crowd could shit on the match. Evolution would be perfect but that’s presumably happening in October. Wrestlemania would be great but would Vince want other main roster women featured? I guess the solution could be wrestlemania and they get called up to the main roster, but then it wouldn’t be the tag titles being defended elsewhere. I don’t know, I’m just excited about this match happening.

    The omega ishii match too. I feel like rewatching that actually.

    The one thing that irked me on the first show, and I posted about it at that time, they ran an exhibition hall at the Long Beach convention center. In the same facility, same venue, there is a 13,000 capacity arena. I highly doubt it was booked in advance, and I don’t remember any event there at the time. Why not as soon as the show sold out so quickly, move over to the much larger venue and find out what your ceiling is? Couldn’t have cost much more and it would have been super profitable. I also thought they should have tried booking the forum in Inglewood for the second show. It seems like they were unwilling to make moves or changes from initial plans, even when it came to announcing cards too late, time after time. Frustrating to watch. And then you had people like Tanahashi discussing it, with a super clear understanding of American fans and exactly what we like about new japan, and the bosses have no understanding of it and keep repeating mistakes time and again.

    Yeah, that was fun. It’s so refreshing watching a 3:15 show as well.

    Hell yeah! (Not advocating for Carmella to get punished over this but they weren’t gonna win anyway, and I’m not interested in seeing a crowd full of bros yelling ugly shit at a woman). Bring on Kairi and Io!

    I agree that the tv deal will be the deciding factor and it’s tough to pick them at #2 right at this moment. But they are positioned far ahead of roh and impact as far as having a bright future. If they can get an 8 figure deal on a decent network they will be #2 for sure. It will be very interesting to see what ticket sales are like for new japan in Dallas in July. I think losing the elite hurts them in the us, and the creation of aew and the timing of double or nothing hurts this show. I’m thinking they draw 8-9k but I hope I’m wrong and it’s bigger than that. The madison square garden show was scaled at 15k when it sold out. They added some more seating but iirc those didn’t even sell out. It’s not close to 20k (not trying to take anything away from it at all, but that number keeps getting thrown around when it’s much closer to 15k).

    I’m thinking the crowd will be especially ugly to Carmella and it’s probably best to just pull them from the match today.

    Deleted. What was the gist of it?

    I’m not worried about their egos, but I do think it could be a weird crowd dynamic. Too much of a broken fourth wall. We’ll see how it turns out, bte is great and I’ll stay optimistic. Since they held tickets back, I’m going to try again for lower bowl tickets. If I get them I’ll sell my upper level tickets for face.

    Had to settle for upper level, oh well.

    If you’re planning to try for tickets the waiting room is open right now. Tickets sold through axs. They let you fill in all your info and pre-select the amount of tix and price level you want, which is cool but they mention this isn’t a guarantee that you will get them. We’ll see how it goes.

    Thanks. The presale codes went through this company called lyte, google says it’s a peer to peer re-selling site. We’ll see how it goes, it’s gonna sell out very quickly.

    Thats a lot of seats for the lowest price point. I’m going for the yellow lower bowl section. Hope it’s not a shit show.
