  1. Redbull Arena in Harrison, NJ is an option. It's one train stop away from Newark and very easy to get to via Path train from New York City. It holds over 25,000. The only issue is it's built like a traditional football stadium so the roof doesn't fully close. Would be good for a spring/summer venue.
  2. I was at that show in 06 and the Steel Cage Warfare show in 05. That place was a deathtrap! The tight staircase to go up to the 3rd floor where the event was held. Only one entrance and exit. Thank god nobody was throwing fireballs at that venue.
  3. Not if Kenny’s using the bucklebomb
  4. It was a JAPW show in Bayonne, NJ back in 2002. Homicide wrestled Steve Corino in the main event. 13 year old me was probably most excited to see April Hunter lol
  5. When Hangman returns, it has to be in a hot market (preferably his hometown) and it has to be with a purpose. If those 2 things happen, it’ll be like he never left and he’ll be as over as he was before he left.
  6. I didn't get home until 2am. I have a slight hangover. My students will have a free day today. AEW has filled my live wrestling yearly fix with these past 2 shows. Seeing Bryan Danielson live again was great! My first time seeing him in a bingo hall in 2002 I had no idea who he was and he lost a submission match to Low Ki. He got me into ROH and I saw his last match there in 2009 against Nigel McGuinness. I've seen him live in WWE most recently against Kofi at mania. And now seeing him again post WWE, in NYC against Kenny Omega feels like I've seen his career come full circle live. The American Dragon is back is I'm looking forward to this run in AEW more than anything else! Thank you AEW.
  7. I don’t think there’s enough time for them to go to a draw. They have dynamite and rampage and both shows are stacked. I can see a time limit draw if it goes 20 max. But probably nothing more.
  8. I got an email the other day from Dusty Rhodes fan asking if I had a ticket for sale for tonight lol Sadly I don’t, but I can’t wait to get out of work and head to Queens!
  9. So I had a ticket to sell because my friend couldn't go and I found a buyer. I sold it through stubhub and had no idea who bought but I knew when I got to the show, I'll be seated next to that person. I get to the show and for the whole night, that seat is empty. I thought maybe that person missed the show too. I get an email last night saying "the ticket was put to good use" and it's a picture of the fan dressed up as Dusty Rhodes! That guy was over big time everyone last night.
  10. Cody got a pretty loud babyface pop from what I heard. I think coming through the crowd and brawling in the crowd added to the excitement and cheers. Had Cody come down the ramp to face Black, there probably would’ve been more boos.
  11. OMG if you guys could here the pop in the arena as they announced match after match for next weeks show! That show is stacked!!! And this show has been fun too.
  12. Scott Hall and Jake Roberts along with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards will probably outlive all of us and survive a nuclear catastrophe.
  13. Queens I’ll be in section 136. I guess that’s mid-upper level. Really interested in what kind of stage setup they plan on having for that show.
  14. I’ll be on the floor in section L. If time permits maybe we can meet for a quick cheers. Enjoy the philly show. I was debating whether or not to go, but since I got tickets for the queens show, I decided to save my bank account a few dollars.
  15. I was able to sell the ticket. Thanks for the help though. And @Nice Guy Eddie you going to the show tonight? I was underwhelmed knowing this Newark show initially was going to be blood and guts and we missed out but since I’m going to both this one and Grand Slam, I’m not as irked.
  16. Not sure if I’m allowed to put this here or not, so I’m sorry ahead of time. A buddy of mine and I were going to the Newark show tonight and he tore his Achilles yesterday and can’t make it. I’m still going. If anyone wants to go, I’m willing to sell here for face value. They are floor seats, level L for $52.45. Message me if interested. Sorry again if this isn’t allowed.
  17. I'm looking forward to that rematch too! I'm kind of hoping Impact/NJPW/AEW can expand the Elite vs BC feud so it can occur across those promotions. Each of those promotions can get a big match like Impact get Kenny vs Jay, AEW gets Kenny/Bucks vs Jay/GOD and then a blowoff in NJPW where the losing faction has to disband 5v5 elimination style match.
  18. Just a random question to throw out there, but is Jericho the modern day Terry Funk?
  19. So Tanahashi is USA bound but not for AEW. He’s challenging Archer at the New Japan show in LA on 8/14.
  20. Fun show! Disappointed Hangman lost but I guess his story continues. And Darby I planting the seeds for Chicago should add more eyes onto that show. Had to watch the main event on a slight fast forward because deathmatches aren’t really my cup of tea. MJF announcing the Juice as the third labor for Jericho was something I didn’t know I wanted to see in 2021. Jericho has definitely lost a step and I’m sure Juvi has too, but I’m sure they’ll figure out a decent match. They should also add how Jericho's the reason Juvi lost his mask into the storyline. Jericho needs a week off and lots of alcohol, neosporin and bandages after tonight.
  21. The contrast in the 2 pictures says it all. The first picture, Punk is standing tall and looks a bit arrogant. Bryan has his hand on his hip and looking at Punk like he can’t wait to stretch him. In the second pic both men are leaning into their handshake showing respect for each other. I wonder what a picture #3 might look like?
  22. I don’t know which theme would make me mark out more, Cult of Personality or The Final Countdown. It’s almost like 10 years ago when Punk dropped the pipebomb promo and we all thought things would change. The big difference is now is there no Vince pulling the strings and sky’s the limit.
  23. Macho takes Backlunds spot as the crazy vet and beats Bret for the title at survivor series 94. Diesel wins the 95 rumble and beats Savage at mania while Bret beats Shawn in a #1 contenders match. Diesel defends against Bret at the first IYH and it pretty ends like the rumble match with lots of interference but the biggest change is a re-debuting Sid taking Diesel out as Shawn’s new bodyguard. This sets up the summer of 95 with Diesel vs Shawn and Sid. Shawn can still turn babyface by the end of the year and get his mania win back from Bret for the title at mania 12.
  24. I was waiting on line to get into MetLife Stadium for Mania 29 and I overheard a few guys in front me saying, "That's Tanahashi over there." I looked around and a few rows parallel to mine, there he was Hiroshi Tanahashi with a baseball cap on and another Japanese fellow (could've been Liger for all I know). I knew I probably would never have the opportunity to say anything to him ever again so I walked over to him very casually, extended my hand and said "Thank you, I'm a big fan." He shook my hand, gave me a small bow and I walked back to my line. I'm pretty sure he was grateful I didn't overreact or bring attention to him. Many of the people around him seemed to be oblivious as to who he was but that's to be expected with large casual fans that show up for Mania.
