    That day at PROGRESS was ****ing fantastic.

    Even sweeter being the only person in my section with a Travis shirt cheering him as he stormed off with the belt to a chorus of boos.

    Excellent matches throughout ,surprised Angelico is alive.

    WWE better hope more of their talent doesn't start going the Jericho route.

    ... Because as entertaining as he is under the WWE's constraints, we're seeing just how great of a heel we've been missing out on when he's unleashed in NJPW.

    Jericho can only do what he's doing because of the rapport he already had in Japan and specifically Gedo. Not just anyone can go do that.

    Went to the first leg of the RoH/NJPW War of the Worlds tour Wednesday. Really awesome show with lots of exciting moments and great in ring story telling as usual.

    The sad thing that kept running through my mind is how ruined these guys would be if they signed with the WWE. They've spent this time on the indies creating their own unique personalities, and signature moves, cutting their own promos and once they make the WWE they're forced to read from garbage scripts, alter their move sets, and eat what ever character the bookers dump on them.

    No wonder guys like the Young Bucks have no interest in signing with them.

    Given their insane merch sales the Bucks would probably be taking a pay cut if they signed with WWE (On top of losing all their creative freedom).

    Took us 40 minutes and we had to split up in groups of two, but we got tickets for All In. Looks like a potential sellout. Rey Mysterio, Pentagon Jr, Kenny Omega, Kazuchika Okada, Young Bucks, Fenix, Tessa Blanchard... it’s going to be a good one.

    Young Bucks could to WWE when they decide they need to start doing less but know they can stay over. The schedule is a big factor. They make enough to make WWE’s schedule not worth the jump.

    They are in the same place Kenny Omega is in. WWE will sell a **** ton of merch off them. But would still need to incentivize.

    There's a lot of talk online that a lot of those tickets were bought up by people that are immediately trying to make a profit in the secondary market. I hope they get a capacity crowd for the event...the tickets have already sold out so that's guaranteed money for them. I kinda figure that's what is going to happen with a lot of big events. Most people who want to buy tickets just want them so they can flip them for a profit.

    That was my thought while waiting in a “virtual line” on the ticket website, but only about 3.5% ended up on StubHub. A cursory glance shows my section is going for $300 ($50 face value). I was totally prepared to blame the scalpers if we didn’t get tickets, but I’ve seen much worse ratios for other concerts/events this year.

    As a comparison there were roughly 13k tickets sold for SummerSlam and right now there are about 4k up on StubHub. It seems very likely that the fans were the ones who ended up with the All In tickets, not the touts.

    I really hope All In is a staggering success and it leads to more in the future. It's got to be taxing on them organizing it, though.

    It's already a success. They have the people booked for the show. They've already accomplished the hard part. All they need to do now is put on a great show. Honestly, I think they aimed too low and I thought that from the beginning. At least for this show.

    It’s a shame advertisers still look at wrestling the way they do because this is the best time for the business in a very, very long time - from the talent, to the business, money, opportunities, exposure, etc.

    Don't know if this is the proper thread, but it might be.

    Kind of jazzed because the two LIJ shirts I ordered just shipped out.

    New foul-mouth Jericho promo cut on Naito via cell phone during this morning's BSOJ show. I'm sure the video will be available...fun stuff.
