I was thinking of ordering this but idk if I'm willing to pay 40 bucks for it. The final card is going to have to look real good to get me back on board. If it was half that it would be an easy decision for me.

Same, just on principle.  Lost In NY was $14!

$40 gets you four months of Powerbomb TV, not counting the free trial you can get using one of the dozens of coupon codes out there.

Interesting little note that was in the WON update

Quote

Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks are the guests on today’s episode of Talk is Jericho, with the interview having been taped in June. Chris Jericho said he told Vince McMahon about All In a few months ago, and Vince replied that he wishes they would have called him because September (when the show is being held) is the worst time of the year to promote.

More proof Vince will never change. He's permanently stuck in the past. No month is a terrible month to promote if you give people something they actually want to see.

Okada trolling Marty on BTE that he's gonna send him to 205 Live is some legitimately funny stuff.

That was my first impression as well.  Old promoter bullshit masquerading as "conventional wisdom."  It reminds me of the story Meltzer tells about, I believe, Sam Muschnick.  Essentially Mushnick, or some other old time promoter, told Dave that promoters will have a million excuses why a show didn't draw.  The weather was too bad.  The weather was too good.  The state fair was in town.  There was a high school football championship game two towns over.  Whatever.  The truth is you put on a show that your audience didn't care to buy a ticket for.

Yeah, September is a just conventionally soft month, nothing they can do about that.  No way is it because WWE goes on cruise control in the period between Summerslam and Royal Rumble.

So we're all just assuming that the most successful promoter in the history of the business doesn't know what he's talking about?

I thought that story was about Paul Boesch.

You might be right.  I get them mixed up.  That's why I gave myself an out ("or some other old time promoter") :)

September probably is a hard month to promote to certain groups of customers especially families and college students people. It's after the end of summer so most families are acclimating back to the school year and recovering financially from summer vacation(s). College students are still settling back into college life (at least those that don't take summer classes some of them might still exist) and recovering from having to buy text books and security deposits if they live off campus. So there is some wisdom there but the All In live audience is probably majority late 20's to early 30's Bullet Club bros who have disposable income or don't care about going into debt/are fiscally irresponsible so the advice really wouldn't have mattered.

I think data would probably show there was a dip in the territory era in business in the fall when school starts and you have competition from things like football. The place that might not be true is the AWA, where the business skewed highest in the winter

September is probably a soft month for regular touring groups with weekly/monthly events, sure. For a special event with a built in audience known for travelling long distances, it's not particularly relevant.

I have to give it up for Daniels/Kazarian adding Scorpio and extending their lifespan by another few years. Kazarian looking good too.

I enjoyed the revolving door of wrestlers (Nick Aldis, Jack Swagger, ZSJ) telling Marty how screwed he’s going to be in the match against Okada.

I would be fine with the WWE bringing back Velocity so that Scurll has a show he can do jobs on.

There’s 5 spots left in the Battle Royal.

Maybe Neville or more appropriately Pac shows up in the Battle Royal.

I wouldn't be mad if he won the battle royal and got the ROH title match.  Don't know if I'd have him win but either way if he takes part then that would be quite a moment.  If he does take part then I hope they don't announce it beforehand for the surprise factor.
