During Raw on Monday they had a presale for people who attended the event only. No internet or competition anywhere else. I bailed on the Raw show half way through to stand in line. Some of the seats were held back that night for the purposes of general public and presale dates according to the usher. I was like 10th in line. Most of the people in front of me were not interested in paying $500 a ticket so I was in good shape I thought.

Just looked on stubhub. Front row tickets are being priced right now for $3,000 a piece. Wow, If I see those seats get sold it's something to consider, but then again I always said if the Rumble came to Pittsburgh I would do what it takes to get in the front row.

I bought 4 tickets -- 214 Row A at $45 each. I haven't watched a full Raw in 15 years. But the Royal Rumble seems so awesome.

That list is pretty tough, the 60's and 70's guys honestly some of those were lucky guesses.

i'm spending today catching up on a few indie shows. I watched PWG 10 earlier, which was really good. PWG is ridiculous. EVERY show is like an indie all star card. it's nuts. They aren't too big on storylines, but the in-ring work is just top notch. I don't think there was a match on that card I'd rate at lower than 3.5/5.

I'm now watching Shimmer 53, which was taped at Wrestlecon back in march. Also, really good. Independant women's wrestling is a whole different animal than what you see in WWE. I don't think I'm a big enough fan of women's wrestling to follow any particular promotion closely, but, I'll watch the odd show here and there. The AIW Girls Night Out shows are usually decent as well, but they have a few less than stellar workers on their roster. Shimmer is regarded to be the best of the best at least in the US. They have a pretty big influx of international talent, too.

I might watch an old chikara show or two later. who knows.

I actually wouldn't mind all these Cenas Back vignettes if he were gone for more than a day and a half. I mean it's a little over dramatic, even for fake wrestling

I wouldn't mind them if somebody bothered to tell Cena to use horizontal orientation when recording his selfies.

Too bad HHH can't consistantly produce an ending like the one he just had. It's been a long time since Raw's been that good to close the show.

The majority of the show was boring. But man, what a main event. That was a killer match.

I missed the ending because the show was boring the entire time. What happened?

Good stuff. Cody and Golddust beat the shield for the tag titles in a no DQ match. It saved the show. Dustin really does still have it. Show came out of the crowd and was the reason they won but it was still really good stuff in my opinion. Need more if that. Was nice to get a break from ending with Orton/Bryan

Damn I fell a sleep around 10 figuring Cody and Goldust would just get jumped by the shield. Sounds like I missed a rare good main event.

Watching Smackdown...with that punch, Show should definitely be a 97-time world champion, right?
