So I live outside Vancouver, and was considering going to Stomping Grounds because the Pacific Northwest rarely ever gets PPV’s or big shows.
Of course, this event looks horrible but if I can find a deal I may still go.
So, I was checking out Stubhub and Ticketmaster, and my god this show is going to be a disaster. First of all, very few floor seats have been purchased. And the prices are utterly ridiculous - we’re talking $600 to $700 for floors and some of the 100s are $150.
Compare that to All Out tickets and it’s completely laughable. As a result, tons of tickets are available and now they’re offering two for one and four for three deals.
Seattle just had ROH, the Super J Cup is coming later this year and they have a thriving indy scene so I just don’t see any interest in this show AT ALL. Combine that with the WWE product being ice cold, a horrendous build for this show and stupid ticket prices and this show is going to be a mess.
It’s why we need promotions like AEW around to actually provide competition and show WWE they cant just charge whatever the fuck they want for a shitty product. But hey they’re big in Saudi Arabia.
