I have no idea what happened, if you try clicking on the show at this point there’s still just an error message. I’m gonna guess that they were doing some type of late night test about opening different arrangements and the damn bots got in and immediately bought and resold tickets and that messed it all up. On the seat map there’s be a string of pink dots with nothing else available. But then those two upper level sections were available…

 

edit: the map is live again. No new sections yet.

I'm going to cross my fingers and hope the scalpers bring their tickets back down to Earth the closer we get to the event. I originally had my tickets to the First Dance for about 3x, but that was about 5 days before the event when I learned they would be trying to induce my wife on that Friday. Then a day before I dropped them down to less than face value and never sold them. They were really excellent seats too. At least I bought insurance for them and got around $125 back.

The same is probably going to happen with this. No one is going to want to take a huge loss on their tickets so they'll drop them down in price. I already made sure I have nothing going on with that Sunday so if ticket prices drop, I'm going.

They opened 222 at some point and that’s gone, so 223 is the only mid bowl section left to open, for whatever reason. 321 and 331 still have plenty of seats left, so they haven’t bothered opening more upper level sections yet. Maybe if they announce some big matches or there’s some surprises at double or nothing, or the following dynamite, the tickets will get hot again. 
 

Im sure like Craig said the aftermarket prices will come way down closer to showtime. But gonna be an awesome crowd.

I hope Tony Khan will be able to transition to the NJPW stuff and matchups going into this event. It's going to be a juggling act, which he's already struggling with.

Hopefully it's better paced than the too long Double or Nothing 2022. 

Hoping I'll get my wish of Bryan Danielson vs. Kazuchika Okada. If not, Danielson vs. Zack Sabre Jr or Danielson vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi.

With Okada likely taking time off for the birth of his kid, I think Jay White wins the title at Dominion. That leads to something like White, Hangman & Cole vs Punk & FTR as the Main with Danielson vs Okada as the co-main at Forbidden Door.

Yano v. Danhausen 

Comedy vs comedy is way too twee for my tastes... better to put them against obnoxious heels that need to get taken down a peg. MJF vs Yano probably isn't happening for a host of reasons, but I could totally see Danhausen vs DOUKI or Gedo, maybe even ELP.

Miro vs. Ishii.

I still don't get this. Ishii is like the guy Miro steps over to get to his real opponent. 😄

Jesus, that's fucking disappointing. Danielson vs. Okada was my first choice then Danielson vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi and Danielson vs. Zack Sabre Jr.

Sorry that people are disappointed, but Danielson vs. Okada was NEVER going to happen on this show. That was an unrealistic expectation. And it was clear from the start, but should’ve been even more clear after Danielson downplayed it in that SI interview last week. He talked up ZSJ way more, and I think that’s the most likely match for him here.

That's the thing with expectations, try to keep them in check so you avoid disappointment. if expectations are exceeded, that's a bonus. I'm gutted.

It will happen eventually! Just probably at Wrestle Kingdom.

I don't see Danielson getting a big singles match with an NJPW guy at this event if he's going to be going to Japan for the G1 in the near future (this year or next) since NJPW is going to want to save those for their shows. Danielson/Okada will happen fairly soon I think either as a last block main event in the G1 or WK or both. Maybe a match vs ZSJ since it's not a first time match but with both of them having a much higher profile these days it could be saved too.

I think a BCC trios match is most likely, possibly against Suzuki-gun so we get ZSJ/Danielson interaction and both Bryan and Mox have history with Minoru in AEW so it makes sense.  They could make it a 8man and add Eddie to BCC so that I can get the Eddie/Taichi match up I want to see.

I hope Omega makes an appearance with his ties to NJPW and I'd like to see him work with some of those guys again in the future, don't know if he'd be willing to do another G1 but I'd love to see him in one again. 

I hope Cobb/O-Khan win the IWPG Tag belts back at dominion and we see some kind of title vs title match against FTR to get those teams in the other promotion more, either direction works for me.
