Section 109 Matt.

TicketMaster are yet to post them to me. I have put a jpeg of my TM Account Page showing them and will RMSD them to whoever buys them as soon as i receive them.

Thread here... http://forums.thedigitalfix.com/foru...d.php?t=625089

Think you can google the seating plan to see exactly where Section 109 is in relation to the Stage/Ring.

Cheers.

Went to the Leeds show with my nephews yesterday. Not watched WWE in a while so no idea who most of the card were!

A good show for a house show. Paul Heyman came out and was yelling at random people in the crowd before getting a caning from Punk.

At the end of the show Cena stayed in the ring to thank all those in costume for coming, pointing out variou people sat near the ring. A nice touch that some previous house shows have lacked.

The arena is good as well, all seats facing the stage. Will probably go back in May. My older nephew apparently is not really into it any more but sure marked out when Cena appeared!

RIP Mae Young , she passed away the early hours of this morning aged 90


According to a few sources on Twitter now that Mae Young is still clinging on! They say she is not dead, but is 'gravely ill'. Mae Young is so tough she can even kick out of a pin by the Grim Reaper!

WWE launching 24/7 subscription network to bring wrestling to your connected device.

http://www.theverge.com/2014/1/8/528...stling-to-your


I can 100% guarantee Sky won't let this be £9.99 here, or live shows will be blacked out.
Can you remember in the early 2000's when the WWF did everything they could to shut down any video online. About time companies started embracing it.

It sounds pretty fantastic from what they've released about it. Any Wcw, wwe or Wcw pay per view on demand. Wondering that will be exc Benoit.

When they say ECW do they mean proper ECW or the WWE version ?

If it is for the proper ECW then it's well worth the $9.99

I don't know how it can be done without Benoit footage (in particular when he was in main events), but it's going to cause issues if they include him.

Other aspects will be edited though (intro music, in particular in ECW, definitely will be different).

From the sound of it, this is the beginning of the end for PPV events. So unless they plan on not launching it in the UK anytime soon, I would expect major changes with the Sky contract.

Benoit will be included, but they will air a warning before shows that he appears in.

They have expressly (and repeatedly) said that all the material on the Network will be uncut and uncensored, which I would be surprised about but they've said it when they didn't need to, so I expect them to stick to it.

The Network is going to have different age rated content, so the Attitude Era stuff should be viewable in addition to hardcore material from ECW. I think they'll also do advisory messages for that stuff, and they'll allow parents to place restrictions on certain stuff, so it seems they're doing everything you could ask of them in this regard.

The big news is that modern PPVs starting with WrestleMania XXX will be streamed live at no extra cost in HD - a damn big saving for the Americans.

There's a six-month commitment at a time, but I think the yanks pay $70+ for WrestleMania on PPV alone, so six months would take them from there through to SummerSlam and all the events in between, you can see why the marks are marking out Stateside

I've not watched WWE properly for a decade or so, but even I'm excited by this ... when the UK gets it anyway

I wish they'd relent on Benoit. He committed a heinous crime, but you can't write someone out of history, we're not babies!

Wow, never expected to see WWE report reach 2nd most read story on BBC news...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/25911039

Sounds like WWE still not respecting lighterweight, outside-made talent.

i actually found the fans quite annoying in that PPV, shouting YES and DANIEL BRYAN and BORING throughout the Cena vs Orton match and booing throughout the last part of the Rumble. He had already wrestled a match during the PPV so I don't know why he should have been in the rumble as well.

i'm not saying anything about the booking, it's just a poor show to boo just because things didn't go the way you wanted, probably ruined the show for all the kids in attendance, and where does it end? He enters the rumble but doesn't win, boos? he wins the rumble but doesnt win at WM, boos? Plus Orton's beaten Daniel Bryan that many times that it wouldn't be any better having that match at wrestlemania than Orton vs Batista? No, better to have DB continue his fued and end up having an epic 3 on 1 handicap match at WM that he somehow manages to win to boost his profile even further. The fans are just getting too entitled in my opinion. Sure if he was being buried like Ziggler then they'd have something to complain about but he's on every show and every PPV prominently, and we all know the title is more or less irrelevant these days as the main at wrestlemania isn't usually a title match anyway
