All the wrestlereunion guests will be headed out of LA immediately after the breakfast on Sunday or red eyes on SAturday, none of them will be around by the time the PWG show starts unless they miss their flight. One of the reasons we're not having an autograph signing on Sunday this year was to accomodate the talent getting out earlier and "home" by Sunday night.

We don't anticipate PWG having 1200 people again at the show like last year when it was on Saturday but hopefully the PPV won't kill the entire crowd. PWG is going to have an incredible lineup without "the old guys". We're going out of our way to make sure the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday shows are all unique to one another.

Believe me, we wanted the end of the PWG show leading right into the PPV. The bar at the Westin will air the PPV (assuming we pay for it), but they only have a few small TVS around their bar, definitely cannot accommodate even 100 people. However, to basically bring that feed into the ballroom where the PWG show will be increases our AV costs by over $6000 (all due to the hotel AV department). The actual PPV fee is only $1500 (commercial license).

yeah, I understand the issue, personally the only "old guys" I like to see work the PWG show is Finlay, since he worked PWG before, and Vader, because he's fucking Vader

as for the Royal Rumble, I personally would like to have the Royal Rumble be played after the PWG show in the ballroom but I understand with costs and although I would hope that fans at WrestleReunion would like to see a live wrestling show and then a live broadcast for one of the big PPV of the year for the price to see a PWG show at least, so I could assume that the attendance for that show could help sell the PWG that can air Royal Rumble after the PPV show but I can understand that it might not enough to get the PPV airing after the PWG show in the ballroom

also, even though she's not officially confirmed yet but is taking indy bookings, I want a match between Chuck Taylor vs. Gail Kim :mrgreen:

Why not just cover it by raising the prices for the PWG show...i think adding $15 or so to all the tickets would be completely reasonable and should cover it...

Finlay vs. Cabana will definitely be interesting, especially in a World of Sport match, I wonder how many people in attendance would even get it

also, something I just found out on Colt Cabana's Art of Wrestling podcast with Daniel Bryan that Colt Cabana will hosting another live Art of Wrestling episode for WrestleReunion

Three more names added to the PWS card as listed on the HighSpots ticket page:

Christopher Daniels
"The Manscout" Jake Manning
Rock Riddle

I passed up on getting a pic with Rock Riddle, I ain't missing it this time. I thought the guy was awesome last time and that's largely because I saw him cut an awesome promo prior to the show.

As soon as I saw Mochi's name, I flipped. Been dying for his appearance since I snagged his DVD from CIMA and the gang during BoLA '07. 8)

Did Mochi lose the Dream Gate? I must have missed that. Anyways, new predictions, still disappointed no YAMATO or Shingo. Maybe YAMATO is on a hiatus for the US in 2012 like Shingo was for 2011:

CIMA and Akira Tozawa vs. The Young Bucks
Naruki Doi and BxB Hulk vs. Future Shock
Mochizuki vs. Willie Mack
PAC vs. Generico vs. Ricochet for the PWG Title
American Wolves vs. Apatite for Destruction for the PWG Tag Team Titles
RockNES Monsters and Susumu Yokosuka vs. The Fightin' Taylor Boys
The Dynasty vs. Super Smash Brothers vs. Famous B and Chris Cadilak vs. Peter Avalon and Ray Rosas

When talking DG titles, you need to specify. The top title in Dragon Gate is Dream Gate, which Mochi holds. You're talking about Freedom Gate, the DGUSA singles title.

WrestleReunion announced a couple of programs set for Friday morning and afternoon prior to the DGUSA show. All these programs are exclusive to attendees with VIP tickets only.

- For the second straight year, they will be doing a live recording of the Art of Wrestling podcast hosted by Colt Cabana. I read that the first time they did this audiences were rolling on the floor in stitches.

- Arena Chicks will be doing a mini-show sometime before the DGUSA show. Matches to be determined in the weeks to come. Amber O'Neal, Shelly Martinez, and Angel Orsini have been announced as appearing at the convention, so those three are likely to be participating. Shelly will also be doing a bikini photo op with Nitro Girl Spice.

- Mike Lano will be hosting a retrospective program on the Los Angeles territorial wrestling scene. Pictures and video clips will be shown as part of the presentation.

They're also trying to get clearance from WWE to do some Mick Foley programs. One is scheduling a stand-up comedy show sometime on Friday. The other is a Three Faces of Foley deluxe photo op where fans get to have their picture taken with Foley, selecting which of his three personas he would be as.

It would be awesome to get in the same shot Dude Love and Shelly Martinez in a bikini.
