Looks pretty good but double or nothing is already a bit too pricey.
I got in on the DON deal for 19.99
This seems good but it’s too pricey
Gonna watch the Bret Hart show, 83 weeks w/ Bischoff, and the Wrestling Observer Live show.
So they announced a Starrcast III for suburban Chicago at the same hotel in Schaumburg they did last year. Excited to announce I will be attending it live again this Labor Day weekend.
This felt cool when it was first announced. Now doing 3 in one year, it feels overdone. There is no reason this has to be done more than once a year.
I agree. You don’t want to burn out your audience’s enthusiasm (and wallets) by doing this too often. Plus, the more you do these the less special it is.
I think there is a market to do 2-3 Starrcast events a year without burning out your audience, especially if they are in different cities.
I attended the first Starrcast and thought it was one of the coolest wrestling events I have ever been to. I have never seen so many fans of wrestling together so happy.
Say what you want about Conrad, but the dude knows how to create and promote entertaining podcasts and worthwhile conventions.
I think 2-3 per year are feasible (and financially viable) if you spread out the locations. Might lose some of the “holy shit, I HAVE to be there” factor, but there are definitely enough wrestlers and gimmicks out there that they can still consistently be pretty good (at the very least) for a while.
