That's the problem. Not get into a whole "Fuck the rich" rant, but apparently if you can afford those seats, you also just sit on your hands. It's like the Vince Theatre joke from South Park. All the crowd noise is coming down from the cheaper seats. That's where families can afford to take the kids who do love this right now, and that's where all the smarky shit comes from as well.

I'd say that would pay to most sports, not just the WWF. Look at the often empty $1000 tickets at yankee stadium or many luxury boxes at various matches.

New Yankee Stadium lost a lot of the atmosphere that the old park had.  But that was just the beginning.  Same thing is happening with the Warriors and all over sports.  Crowds are getting worse as the teams get better and the rabid fans are priced out.

If I pay that kind of money, then they better offer the leg room that the seats at a pro sports event usually offer.

Summerslam 2012 was on the Network yesterday. And the one thing that stood out the most? They had some band performing whatever was the theme song was. And then the Divas came out and go go danced! Imagine that happening today.

The best place to sit in the new stadium to be with the die-hard fans like me is with "The Bleacher Creatures" in RF section 203. They're the ones that get the roll call started at every home game.

I could see it happening at a YaroZ show no problem.  I might have already, those shows aren't that memorable.

We putting "Big Cat" Curtis Hughes above the line then, or nah?

Just for the line Curtis  said at a Wrestle Birmingham show that got the promoter a huge fine means Curtis is way way above the line.

The Prawn Sandwich Brigade is going international? Fantastic. People complained that The Emirates Stadium doesn't have the atmosphere that Arsenal's old Highbury stadium did. Fans of other teams mocked Highbury as 'Library' for how quiet it was compared to other grounds.

That sounds like it also happens at Wembley when the mens team says there: lots of Blazers who dont bother actually watching the game.

If you mean the Friday night Arena Mexico match, which was a 4 way, it was okay. Everyone got their stuff in and it had the right ending. (Its posted in the matches thread.). 

If you mean the 3 way Saturday night with Liger, Felino and Mr Aguila, I havent seen it yet.

I think he wrestled 3 times*. Saturday, he had 10 1 minute matches and then a real match vs the winner of a battle royale,  which was Felino & Aguila. 

Sunday, he is a tag with mistico vs  Caristico & UG.

1) Vaguely remember a Rock vs X-Pac WWF title match on a UK PPV that was somewhat a precursor to the Taker/Jeff Hardy title match. Loved the psychology in that match until the bullshit ending.

2) Your Mendoza line is Perry Saturn.

I think Thr Memndoza Line begins and ends with Brian Adias. Being childhood friends with the Von Erich boys gets a few runs ith the Texas title even though you're just kinda... in the ring

Not bad. Al Perez is another option I'm throwing out there.

I will now nominate Shawn Stasiak. He was  the worst of the Natural Born Thrillers outfit. He did absolutely nothing to stand out.  He had less charisma than everyone else in the group. All he had was a look and a name. He was another guy in there just doing stuff.  Nothing ever remarkable,  nothing ever flat out atrocious.  Just a random guy that looked like a early 2000s CAW.

I would like to overrule Hughes as a nominee, but I also actually kinda thought he was pretty good, so I’m weird.

My possible nominee might be Al Madril from the footage I’ve seen, but maybe there’s something better I’ve missed.

As good as Becky's line was, I wish we could have gotten a "fuck Hulk Hogan" with it, if only to confirm that she's an avid DVDVR fan...

...and also because fuck Hulk Hogan...
