Full crowd in the Spektrum, great atmosphere.

I suspect WWE may have underestimated the Norwegian market as they had brought a pretty low end spectrum of their wrestlers and the merch booth was practically non-existant. Wrestling has been on television in Norway since the early 90's so the crowd was fairly old I would estimate compared to a normal show in US f.ex, Hopefully we convinced them to come back again on their world tour next year :)

Also got a better understanding of why WWE put out some of the more cringey stuff they do that you may not think much of when watching on TV, like R-Truth and Camrella and their dance off etc, but makes more sense when you experience it live as it does help create a good atmosphere.

Managed to film last part of the main event :lol:

Been the best part of Raw for weeks now, along with Sami Zayn's promos. Can't wait for them to completely f*** it up as per once they start doing it in front of a live crowd instead of pre recorded skits.

As long as the good guy climbs up a ladder after losing clean, it's fine. 100% boost for both participants.

Interesting. I really hope it's good. I mean, it can't be s***, given the talent they've got involved, can it?

:lol: Of course it can. WWE has been doing it for years.

I hope they limit themselves to 2hrs p/week and a ppv every 8 weeks or something. And I hope they utilize jobbers heavily.

That's surely part of the reason it shouldn't be s*** though.

It'll most likely be like WWE just a little bit more edgy. Just as TNA was. They tried the ranking system too.

Still, good for the industry with some competition between the companies and more opportunities for the wrestlers.

I know they said they're going to make wins and losses matter, not sure if they gave specific details yet though.

Good on them though, one of the worst things about WWE is the 50/50 booking bullshit.

Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

I wonder what will happen with the PPVs.  BT show UFC PPVs at no extra cost.

Will probably just be on the Network and BT won't show them, i don't think Sky get the PPVs either.

I think it's more likely Sky ditching WWE than the other way around tbh.

WWE are in a real mess all over in terms of viewing numbers, and they aren't the pull they used to be for Sky. I don't think Sky were particularly happy when the current deal with WWE was signed either, since about 2 weeks after the deal was agreed, WWE announced the Network, and basically killed all Sky box office revenue :lol:
