There's not a 100k worth of demand. We do like to go to big special events in Melbourne, especially when breaking records are involved, so with cheap tickets, a stacked card and a lot of promotion they could get 80k.

October/November is a quiet time for the G, the AFL season has finished and the big cricket matches don't start until December, so they want more to get more events there during that time. It's owned by the state government BTW.

The Global Warning show back in 2003 was at Etihad Stadium and would be a better place to have it due to it having a roof and the stands being closer in. It's where UFC 193 was held, the one where Holly Holm beat Ronda. Depending on how it's set up, they could have got 65k in there.

They can definitely do a loaded show if it's a dual-brand show. And Undertaker's name was mentioned as it was requested Rousey and Taker be there in their pitch to WWE, so if they did a Cena-Taker rematch (assuming that happens at Mania) that would be a strong main event. Plus 4 men's title matches, 2 women's title matches, 2 tag title matches, maybe HHH in a special match, etc.

Who is this guy, shouldnt he have a restraining order or something. Send the boys out to whoop his ass then perhaps he'll stop. I guess he's a stalker or crazy?

He was a guy who kept trying to get into the performance center to talk to one of the women (maybe Bayley but I don't remember for sure.) They had employees force him out, but one time he came waving a knife at employees when they came close to him. So they called the police and he charged at a cop with the knife so they shot him.

He probably does have a restraining order, which was why he quickly left when security came out.

Reports are Owens and Zayn will be in the Andre battle royal and Shane will instead wrestle Dolph Ziggler. I hope that isn't true because Shane and Dolph in a feud would be the very definition of "who gives a fuck" since they've made Ziggler one of the dullest wrestlers on the roster. Plus Stephanie is wrestling and the world isn't hoping to see every McMahon have a match like it's still 2000.

-- WWE star Jeff Hardy was arrested on Saturday evening 3/10 for driving while impaired in Concord, North Carolina, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

Hardy, 40-years old, was arrested at 10:20 PM on 3/10 at 4545 Concord Pkwy South, according to the Cabarrus County Sherriff’s Office. He was released a little over an hour later at 11:24 PM. No details have been released yet on the circumstances leading to the arrest.

Hardy has also been hit with a 30 day pretrial revocation of his driver's licence, which means that currently, he cannot legally drive. That is a normal procedure in the State following an arrest of that nature. He is slated to appear in Cabarrus County Court on 4/16 in regard to his arrest.

The former WWE champion has been out of action since undergoing surgery for a torn labrum and a torn rotator cuff in September 2017. He has been slated to head to the WWE Performance Center later this month to work out in the ring in advance of his return to action.

With Jeff out of action, hs brother Matt Hardy has been feuding with Bray Wyatt. WWE filmed the latest chapter of that feud, Ultimate Deletion, on the Hardy compound this past Friday 3/9. There is no word yet whether Jeff Hardy was slated to (or did) appear in any fashion during the filming.

Obviously, the story is developing, and we will have more details as they emerge.

-- There was some internal discussions of keeping Roman Reigns off of this week's Raw as "punishment" for his "shoot" interview against Brock Lesnar the week before. The idea would have been that WWE suspended Reigns for a week due to his comments but ultimately the decision was made that it was better for him to be there to respond to Paul Heyman's promo.

-- The Big Show's WWE contract as an in-ring performer expired last month and according to Sports Illustrated, the company has transitioned him into an agent's deal. Show, who is still training for possible wrestling matches, won't be able to appear for any promotions while under this agent's deal, but could be called upon for WWE whenever they need him to wrestle.

Asuka moved to Smackdown. So that means they're putting Alexa and Nia on Wrestlemania. That is going to be the worst Mania match in years.

KId Rock going into a wrestling hall of fame is like Tiffany going into a rock HOF.

:lol:

You don't think this masterpiece brings him entry into both Halls?


Also Final Deletion will be on Raw next week instead of Mania as was originally reported. Which makes more sense since nobody wants to watch a 20 minute video in a giant stadium when they've paid all of that money for tickets and travel.

Fortunately for her she was so over as one of the most beautiful women in wrestling that she could have come out to audio of Pat Patterson and Brooklyn Brawler fucking and she'd still get a pop. And she later sang her own song.



And I don't understand why they just didn't use the original since ZZ Top are huge wrestling fans going back to being World Class fans that always go to the LA shows and would have probably given them a good price. Kid Rock isn't a fan he just watches it sometimes. He did the Raw appearance for his dwarf sidekick Joe C, who was even a Observer subscriber.

WWE's WrestleMania plans for Shane McMahon, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn may become clear on tonight's episode of SmackDown.

WWE is advertising that Shane will be making a WrestleMania announcement tonight. The announcement comes after Shane's storyline with Owens and Zayn continued at Fastlane on Sunday, with him preventing both of them from winning the WWE Championship.

Owens and Zayn also appeared to officially turn against each other at the pay-per-view. Owens didn't trust that Zayn was going to let Owens pin him. He went to pick Zayn up, but Zayn turned it into a small package and they started to fight.

Dave Meltzer reported in yesterday's daily update that Shane is scheduled to wrestle with Owens and Zayn in some form at WrestleMania, but the match type isn't known yet.


I'm glad the Ziggler rumor wasn't true.

another rather average ppv, wwe title match was OK the rest were just around the regular show. The kick off shows tag match had a nice funny moment when a drop kick clearly missed by a county mile (maybe it looked like it connected to the live crowd but not on telly it didnt) but the guy still droped which did at least make me laugh

WWE says “after further consideration” they will be changing the name of the upcoming Fabulous Moolah Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34.


A rep for WWE says, “After further consideration, we believe it’s best to proceed with the name ‘WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal.’ What remains most important is that this historic match is part of WWE’s unwavering commitment to the Women’s Division.”

As we previously reported, there was major backlash following the announcement this week due to former Moolah trainees accusing her of things such as taking money from women and pimping them out for sex work.

Story developing …

Fuck Ryback. After he couldn't stiff jobbers in handicap matches anymore he was useless. All he ever did was injure people. Now he's jealous of Rusev being over while nobody bought his shitty book.
