Basically because of the attendance disappointing and that they didn’t try to get more out of the first Okada-Tanahashi match in the west, plus the Dome ticket stuff being recent.
My understanding is that MetLife Stadium was their main contact, not WWE.
I think they do have people coordinating that, and it’s possible they did everything right. It’s the dumb statement that makes me even consider that it was at least partially their fault.
One of the truly amazing things about WWE is their ability to release statements that make things worse than if they had said nothing. It’s happened for decades.
I’m guessing that’s either in the security stuff they didn’t produced or the security stuff they redacted heavily out of that one doc they did produce.
This was an “official” Uber/Lyft line?
Well, yeah, we’re talking about a transit system with numerous unmarked bus stops, bus drivers who are of zero help if you’re going someplace for the first time, buses that will just no-show repeatedly, etc.
That show ended later than 10:30, though.
Hello, guy who has a weird complex about things other people enjoy and didn't read the article.
They needed Sinclair's lawyers after whatever happened with WWE that briefly got the date pulled.
Fighters only strip if they won’t make weight with any clothes on, and yes, men do it, too. But they started having the modesty curtain available for the female fighters after an all-women's promotion affiliated with the UFC came up with it.
Invicta started using it several years ago and the UFC picked it up.
For starters, there can be a middle ground between “announce nothing” and “no lineups until 2-3 weeks out.” But the reality of NJPW in the U.S. is that it’s a destination boutique product. And after instances where fans have been burned, making sure they get fans to travel will require advertising SOMETHING further in…
I think it’s hard to say. ROH & NJPW clearly went with such an early on-sale date to get ahead of NXT ticket sales, knowing that there was no way they’d go on sale before SummerSlam weekend since that was in the same market, including with another NXT show. But first non-WWE show at the current MSG was also a huge…
Gunn is one of those guys, like Bobby Roode now, who’s best as a tag team wrestler. Missing a certain something, but with good enough basics, psychology, and athleticism to be half of a really good tag team with a bunch of different partners. But as a singles? Meh.
Eh, they made a point to only announce talent under contract to ROH & NJPW past April for the MSG show when they put the tickets on sale. It’s not either company’s fault if fans didn’t listen or pay attention.
I can’t unsee this now.
They’re great. The match they had with LAX at the House of Glory show with Low-Ki vs. Red last year was one of the best I saw live in all of 2018. So happy for them.
