They had 600 in an 11000 seat arena last week. They were in Newcastle tonight but with cheapest tickets at around £30 I gave it a miss and went to a talk in with Rafa Benitez for half the price and we got a goody bag too. I will be surprised if they draw any more than that tonight

The metro radio arena seat just under 10500 people again there was approx 600 in the place. Some people have more money than sense. This promotion has to be haemorrhaging money big time. You have to wonder where the finance is coming from

Well Mysterious is still known from WWE but Van Dam hasn't done much for ages,WWE knocked him back because of issues with historic concussions plus he is not ring ready he looks unfit and slow. Morrison or whatever name he is using is reasonably competent and excelled in Lucha underground but all the name changes means he has to start again with the casual fan. £30 was the cheap seats. The top end were ridiculous. They should be working venues of around 1500 capacity maximum at the moment and decent camera angles can make the venue look fairly full. The promoter must be selling a kidney to pay for this. I wouldn't expect this to last long unless they start being more financially aware.

the ring side commentators came accross as red coat rejects from one the nice mr dixon's butlin show.

wonder how much they paid the wrestler

in fact did any of those signed up for the world of sport/jeff jarrett fiasco ever get paid. shock horror, what am i implying

how much were the top end seats.

mistake the production made was that modern cameras have a good contrast range which unlike old cameras show empty seats in background

shall now settle down to a nice mug of gender fluid masala tea

It's too long, the British wrestlers are the support especially when they are booking yank versus yank as main event, there's promotions in this country producing a better product with predominantly UK wrestlers in prominent positions on the bill. The 5star show last year from the ice rink in Dundee was very poor so how they got picked up by another TV channel is beyond me. I would love to see British wrestling back on TV but I am afraid that this isn't it.

Unfortunately these TV shows with over emphasis on facile storylines never show present day Professional Wrestling at its best.I have seen most of these wrestlers live and this does not show them at their best

recorded last thursday live show (cough) suddenly large as life there was grado. he looked fitter then last time spotted eatting a desperate dan cow pie with hack

the general production is very good by that i mean camerawork, lighting, post production but something is missing. just seems to be going by the numbers and not generating rating any excitment. at least there was no sign of brain's daughter screaming cheat all the time

The week before it started they were on Facebook and Twitter asking for people with film and media and cameras. It's a surprise they got as far as a broadcast. The booking is weak I reckon the roster see it as a short term thing so nobody is killing themselves to get over. It can't continue the way it is. It's losing a fortune the more shows they run the more they are deeper into the hole. You have to wonder how deep their pockets are.

Yes it's live, mores the pity, it's too long, some decent editing down to 90 minutes including ad breaks and smaller venues where some atmosphere could be generated might make it watchable

There's a rumour that the show has been pulled from the tv schedule and replaced by basketball. This week's show is due to be broadcast from Plymouth. Wonder if it's still happening
