I imagine that both promotions will end up sharing like 60% of the wrestlers so it makes sense.

(If they actually try this out, I demand video.)

LMAO for Impact moving their show from Queens to RAHWAY. I'm guessing you can count the folks going to both shows on one hand.

Wait wait wait, is that MLW show only 2 hours, because that's the only fucking way people are gonna get from Long Island City to Rahway to make both shows.  Like, that trip is an hour driving in GOOD traffic.  Mass transit, forget about it.  NJ Transit out of NYC is a fucking mess.

I am guessing this was done more with talent booking purposes in mind.

Of course it was, since they're both tapings. But the story itself mentions this was done to ensure fans can get to both events, which is completely absurd for reasons stated above.

Well the thing that has been unsaid is that Impact original show had sold almost no tickets

If that's the case why doesn't Impact and MLW just do a joint show instead?  Impact has spent the last year and change doing shows with random companies and putting it on Twitch so it's not like this can't be done.

Part of me now hope that Josh Barnett has a grudge against Frank Mir

I am posting this in case folks are working this in among the shows they are going to

The current plan is for WWE to announce the location of Wrestlemania AXXESS this afternoon.

The event will be held in Brooklyn, NY.  It will not be held at the Barclays Center we are told, as there would not be adequate space given all the other WWE events set for the venue that week.

There's been rumblings of the 60,000 square-foot Brooklyn Expo Center hosting the event in the last few days, but we have been unable to officially confirm that is indeed the case.  That venue does have an event scheduled for Sunday 4/7.

In an email to fans who have purchased the Wrestlemania travel packages last week, WWE stated AXXESS would feature "....the chance to get autographs and take photos with your favorite WWE Superstars & Legends and get the ultimate fan experience including live matches, Superstar Q&As, memorabilia displays, exclusive WrestleMania merchandise and more."

WWE will hold AXXESS Sessions on Thursday 4/4, Friday 4/6, multiple sessions on Saturday 4/7, Sunday morning 4/8 and for the first time, a post-Wrestlemania session on Monday 4/9.

They announced Pier 12 in Red Hook as the Axxess site. I guess Friday will be my Con day as I can't see sneaking in any shows between this and WrestleCon.

Cool now let's get Nick Gage vs Manny Fernandez that weekend in a Stolen Valor Deathmatch where if Manny loses he has to admit that he was never in the NFL or Vietnam.

Well that set of time shifts is a bummer. I was hoping to do Wrestlecon Supershow and AIW back to back. The Supershows typically run four hours, and doing those is going to be impossible now unless I leave Supershow really early or miss multiple opening matches at AIW.

I am old and broke and just looking at that list of events is making me exhausted. Pretty sure I'll be sick of wrestling by the end of the weekend. :D Shows I'm shooting for:

Thursday: DDT at La Boom (EDIT: booked!)
Friday: WrestleCon USA vs The World (EDIT: booked! Free GA with Con admission)
Saturday: NJPW/ROH at MSG (already booked)

EDIT: 3-for-3 on shows I'm actively interested in. I'll take it.

The only show I would go to is NOVA Pro's show but that is highly highly doubtful just because of other life events that will be going on

Maybe this has become the new norm but I am curious about this.

If you buy tickets for Impact's event this is the ticket breakdown

  • 1st Row Ringside - $149 (+ $21.10 in Fees & Taxes)
  • 2nd Row Ringside - $80 (+ $12.11 in Fees & Taxes)
  • 3rd Row Ringside - $60 (+ $9.51 in Fees & Taxes)
  • GA - $40 (+ $6.90 in Fees & Taxes)

The deal with the three ringside rows is that each row is first come, first serve

So theoretically one can spend almost $350 on ringside seats (assuming you are buying 2) and not know the exact seat you are sitting in

I was going be all #LOLTNA but that's when I realized that maybe this is what most indies do now.

Just seems really weird to me.

The theory is that they moved the show up to 11:00 because there is a 2 AM curfew and apparently they just realized it.  Although that is strange because there is no way in hell Janela Spring Break 2 is going to be done at 2 AM the next night.     Does Jersey City have a weekday only curfew?

I think the only curfew is for folks under 18 (though it might be more folks are using curfew incorrectly).

Like I could easily see there being something like "No live event can run past (insert time here)"
