    MLW have got a TV deal with BeIN Sports in America, Link.

    They're very worth giving a look if you get the channel.

    For some reason I thought we were getting two nights of NJPW in long beach this time as well like the G1 Special. I'm quite relieved as the 4.5 hours of amazing wrestling last night was exhausting! Can't wait for Cody and Omega now

    Argh, I didn't think I'd need to extend the four hour recording.

    I can't wait to see the year long culmination of all this leading to the expulsion of Cody. The storytelling is going to be fantastic.

    They fire Cody from Bullet Club and then Kenny turns on Ibushi revealing it was all part of his plan to get rid of Cody. That's a way to draw mega heat.

    But I'm not sure you can do that while keeping Cody a heel.


    I extending but only 15 minutes. I missed the whole end stuff with Cody and then Omega's promo. Found it on youtube though.

    I’m not sure at that point keeping Kenny as a heel is the purpose

    That really is incredible. Even moreso because it's Ibushi's move

    PWG is leaving their home venue:



    The building was up for sale and has sold, some speculation is that it's being pulled down for redevelopment.

    Hopefully this means they're moving somewhere bigger so fans can actually get tickets...

    Obviously sad to see the Legion go but as a fan living in the area this is great news, maybe tickets won’t sell out in 2 minutes now

    Part of me thinks PWG could fill a good chunk of Staples Center for BOLA, obviously not realistic for them to run a show there but for arguments sake

    I think they could fill a real good chunk of a 10K+ arena if they tried. There are a ton of people who have never been able to get tickets, so you'll be able to sell to all of them. I've got a few friends here that have money already set aside to a trip to PWG should they ever manage to get tickets, and I'm sure there are far more like that who are more local.

    Obviously it'll have to be a one off thing as it wouldn't be sustainable, but it would be interesting to see how much of a big building they could fill.

    Any word yet on when tickets for All In go on sale? I caught some bad luck last time The Young Bucks were in town, and the re-sale prices were outrageous.


    That's dirty.

    I've not really followed the All In show closely, but I'm sure they'll announce them via the All In twitter account when they're going to be on sale. But Meltzer'll talk about it on his shows, so I'll post if he mentions anything about tickets.

    Alberta El Patron fired after no showing the TNA vs Lucha Underground event. Is there any wrestling group that he hasn't pissed off?

    I think Cody vs. Omega will be the first non-WWE match I seek out since Omega vs. Okada II.
