New York

I took a look at WWE's leaked schedule and realized something: they hardly every come to NYC anymore.

For a company who's was known as "New York", for many years, running shows here, is a rarity these days.

Any reason why?

​It's really, REALLY expensive to run MSG now, basically.  I don't think there's any deeper reason than that.  ​

Comments

  1. Not taking anything away from his ability but Steamboat had the weakest looking offence ever. Even as a kid I always thought it looked horrible. Maybe that's why he didn't get a log run with it.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Probably for the people In it. And for the measly 30 comments that people post in it. For 99.99 percent of everyone else who visits the BOD it comes off as corny as hell and just something people scroll past.

  3. MSG > Barclays by a wide margin! PS Lets go Rangers!!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yeah, there's just something really hokey about them, and it makes me zone out or change the channel when they're on.

  5. She's old enough to be his mom. And not like a teen mom or young pregnancy or whatever. Like, a mom that got married, waited a few years to have kids, and then had him.

    ReplyDelete
  6. But really, we're better as a people getting to hear JD and the Straight Shot play MSG rather than a WWE show.

    ReplyDelete
  7. East Rutherford/Newark? Lowell or Worcester?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Dolan is doing great for the Rangers because he doesnt interfere and lets Sather make all the decisions. Great time to be a Blue Shirt fan!

    ReplyDelete
  9. The more I watch it I think they must have bumped teeth or something I mean I think she is old and gross as the next guy for trying to still act and dress like she is 25 but ..i have to assume something happened and that she couldn't have been THAT gross that drake couldn't hold it together for 10 seconds for the lights to go out.

  10. Or the best if you don't have Cablevision and root for the Celtics!

  11. United Center is getting long in the tooth, by modern arena standards. Are there any plans to build a new arena in Chicago?

    ReplyDelete
  12. "NO" - Chicago.

    WWE's home city is Wall Street, much as they'd love it to be Hollywood.

    ReplyDelete
  13. None I've heard about. There's a boatload of money going into Wrigley renovations right now.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Its insane how much it costs to rent Madison Square Garden. Unless you are an A+ list musical act or tour, don't even bother.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Once Vince finds out they're supposed to be Mexican, they'll be riding lawn mowers to the ring in no time.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yup, basically boils down to James Dolan is a shithead. The Barclay's Center is fine, anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Izod in East Rutherford just closed, hence why SummerSlam had to be moved to Brooklyn

  18. "You see that, pal? That's how you connect with a crowd. You should be more like them and not so... so... foreign. Now hand over your tag title, you Swiss Millennial and watch those Lucha guys."

    ReplyDelete
  19. I had read long ago that they prefer Rosemont for logistics purposes. It's apparently closer to the airport and highways so getting the trucks there is easier.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sad to see what they've become after the promise of 2005-2006.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Vince doesn't know Kidd and Cesaro are the tag team champions. He just thinks that's how foreign people dress.

    ReplyDelete
  22. As many have said below, it's because Dolan charges ridiculous rent to run the arena. Maybe if he wasn't such a colossal fuck-up with the Knicks he'd have some more revenue. Outside of the Rangers being awesome, the Garden only gets away with it because it's the Garden.

    It's amazing because WWE still pretty much sells out the Garden for a house show and yet that still apparently isn't enough to make a profit on it. You'd think that because the Garden has had a 50+ year relationship with WWE that Dolan would want to keep that relationship going, but he's a fucking idiot on so many levels.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think a series of matches with the Dragons vs. Cesaro & Kidd would be gold. Though those two are basically just workhorse teams. They still need a team or two that can give effective promos (Maybe someone who wasn't Sawft? Even though I'm sure I'm in the minority on that one.)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I loved his armdrags.

    ReplyDelete
  25. TNA wrestlers not getting paid?

    Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

    Oh wait... it's the same terrible boss.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Do you have a quick link to this info? If not, it's cool, I'll search for it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The United Center is only 21 years old. I've never been there, so I'm wondering what it doesn't have that couldn't be fixed with a renovation instead of a total rebuild?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Maybe she had bad breath.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hockey is a fickle sport. Winning the Presidents Trophy don't mean shit. I wouldn't be surprised if the Rangers lose in the first round.

  30. I remember when Madonna kissed both Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera and all anyone wanted to talk about was Britney, like Christina just stopped existing for whatever reason.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I forgot about how awesome the Mean Street Posse's music was. Wasn't it one of them was a legit wrestler and the other two were Shane's friends?

    ReplyDelete
  32. ...I think until she got on the swinging chair show..that is a decent representation of her career isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Joey Abs was the legit wrestler

    ReplyDelete
  34. Can't lie, every time I see a sweater vest their music starts playing in my head.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm sure the kids love them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. They will if they have no place else to go.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Most of the reasons for new arenas center on luxury boxes and suites, amenities, etc. I haven't been to United Center in a long time, so perhaps they were forward thinking and put plenty of those in place from the beginning.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Is the "Everything is fine" joke played out yet? Didn't want to be lame.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 3-0-1 against shittsburg in the regular season plus winning 3 straight against them in the playoffs last year, i think we will be ok....

    "The cost of running the event would fall significantly, though, primarily because it costs roughly $400,000 to rent the Garden, which seats about 16,500."



    From 2011.

    ReplyDelete
  41. ...wait wait wait....so they put up every raw from the end of 97 through the start of 99...but not in the Raw section but in the Raw attitude section? to the extend that 98 is now now an option on the Raw section....who makes this kind of decision?

    ReplyDelete
  42. You think with the local competitors (Prudential Center in Newark, Barclays in Brooklyn, and until it closed Izod Center) that MSG would make sure that they offer reasonable deals.

    Too bad, MSG PPVs are some of the best.

    ReplyDelete
  43. No need to even blow a spot. Give it a few weeks and Vince will forget he has a tag team division.

    ReplyDelete
  44. So Raws from 93-98 are up in full now?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Everything IS fine...they aren't losing money if they aren't paying their guys!

    ReplyDelete
  46. no they skipped 97 and the end of 96 to put up all the 98s

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm pretty sure there titantron is the only on screen appearance kevin Dunn ever had in wwe

    ReplyDelete
  48. I just had to watch the WM 2000 Hardcore Battle Royal to see Pete Gas' glorious blade job.

    ReplyDelete
  49. While the Knicks are a mess (as a lifelong Knicks fan, I know) Dolan and co rake in a TON of $$. Revenues aren't the problem for him - running a basketball team certainly is. Plus why would he care about a long term relationship when he can rent MSG out to any other number of counterparts?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I can't imagine Reed holding the title for as long as Honkytonk did. I presume he would have dropped the title back to Savage upon his face turn or the Warrior would have gotten the title sooner. Or maybe we would have gotten something wacky like a Billy Jack Haynes IC title reign.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Question: Is there more of a colossal fuck-up in sports ownership than James Dolan owning the Knicks?

    I know there are owners of rinky-dink teams that might suck more, but those teams don't have the pedigree/advantages of having a team in New York. Here is a team that has a strong history and plays in the Mecca of basketball, and is in a city most players WANT to play in. He even has Phil Jackson -- a guy who knows a thing or two about winning basketball games -- and can't win with him. They're not even average, they are dead last in their conference. And despite that, the Knicks still make a ton of dough with outrageous ticket prices, so it's not like money is an issue.

    The most hilarious thing is that he owns the Rangers and is pretty hands-off with them, and they've been on a hot streak over the last four or so years.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow. I like the Lucha Dragons, but I'd hardly say they were really over with the main WWE audience.


    Maybe they have really meaty thighs...

    ReplyDelete
  53. It only took Sather like 25 years to put together a decent team. Hang around long enough and lightning strikes.

    ReplyDelete
  54. When I saw all those ex-WCW guys, Nash in particular, I thought promotion wouldn't last but here we are 9 years later after all the mistakes and terrible ideas TNA is still out there somehow, with a solid roster of talent. It's an amazing thing in its own way.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Vince will pass kalisto forget it's not Rey...get pissed off and fire him.

    ReplyDelete
  56. He was my favorite one.
    Joey Abs was an Indy wrestler who wrestled for MCW.

    ReplyDelete
  57. They're over with the audience of one.

    ReplyDelete
  58. TNA wrestlers not getting paid?

    Since when was Heyman the owner?

    ReplyDelete
  59. And that's all that matters.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I think they're a bit one-note, to be honest. I mean, they're decent in the ring - and I'm glad they're not being split up and Kalisto getting the rumoured hairdresser gimmick - but I see them more as good guys to put others over rather than champs themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I always thought Steamboat would have been way cooler with a better finisher. The Flying Bodypress worked in the 80's, but during the second leg of his career, when move finishers became more common, it felt incredibly dated.

    ReplyDelete
  62. So anyone aside from me not have as big of a hard on for the attitude era as others?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'm sure Tito Santana would've formed the Mega-Powers with Hogan instead lol.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Right now, sure. Hunico is versatile enough that he can do pretty much any gimmick. I don't know about Kalisto.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Justin Timberlake's face. Better times were ahead for him.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I'm sure they'll be getting Kaned in the ring shortly anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I've read that not only is it super expensive to run a show at MSG, they also charge huge amounts on top of that if you want to record or broadcast a show from there. Hence the rare shows they do run there are always just house shows rather than Raw or PPVs.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I heartily endorse this post.

    ReplyDelete
  69. that arena is booked solid every night, I don't think they care ultimately.

    ReplyDelete
  70. "Plus why would he care about a long term relationship when he can rent MSG out to any other number of counterparts?"

    Because it's good to know you have a client who will still be a client 10, 20, 30 years from now and will continue to generate business for your company long-term. I have clients that I give preferred pricing because I work with them all the time and want to ensure we will continue working together for years.

    I don't know, as a businessman I'd probably want to have WWE running 4-6 or so sellout shows a year at my arena rather than the one across the East River. WWE is now down to 2-3 MSG shows a year -- I wouldn't be surprised if it goes back to zero like the 18 month break from 2005-2006 when they were having that dispute.

    ReplyDelete
  71. You know what would be awesome? If the Lucha Dragons get into a heated angle with Kidd and Cesaro where the teams build a rivalry through some stellar matches on TV with the heels barely holding on to the titles. Then, after a few weeks of frustration and the fans supporting them, the Dragons challenge for the titles at a big PPV and finally win the titles to a big pop!

    ReplyDelete
  72. They're in the middle of money. It's easier for moneyed Manhattanites to get to the Garden, so they can charge a much higher fee than somewhere in Brooklyn or the sticks.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm sorry, but this is a ridiculously stupid notion. You've used four lines and haven't mentioned Big Show standing tall over both teams once. Yyyyyyyyyyyyyouuurrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeee ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffired!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. You say that and then Pitt pulls out a win in a 3 overtime game to even the series going back to Pitt and all of the sudden you're looking at game 7 and wondering how you got there. Hockey is the most glorious bitch God ever created.

    ReplyDelete
  75. BTW not hating on the Rangers. Just seen so much how the fuck did we get here bullshit from Bruins over the last 6 years, it's a wonder why I love hockey so much.

    ReplyDelete
  76. It really isn't though. Just looking at the calendar, MSG has nothing scheduled from May 28 to June 20 and another big break from August 20 to September 12. They're not renovating anymore so I'm surprised there are such big gaps during the summer.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Interesting but if history has shown us anything this will go better if the teams just steal the titles back and forth for weeks

    ReplyDelete

    Needs more distraction finishes and rollups.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I get that but Dolan is in a total position of advantage here as he can rent it out to more profitable counterparties. I don't know specific obviously, but it's probably not worth the compromise for either. Unless both sides are stupid (they're not) then they'd come to an agreement if it's beneficial to both. I do think the days of having to route through NYC/MSG are dying. the NY metro population isn't growing as people leave the area due to the ridiculous housing/rent prices. 30 years from now who knows what it will look like

    ReplyDelete
  80. You could make a case for the Wrigley family's ownership of the Cubs. 1918 through 1982.

  81. HOLY SHIT

  84. "Unless both sides are stupid (they're not) then they'd come to an agreement if it's beneficial to both."
    I don't know, we are talking about Dolan here...

    All kidding aside, I get that Dolan can get more from other counterparties, but I do see value of having a preferred client that you work with regularly. We don't know the financial particulars, of course.

    And the population isn't the only thing that will be changing in New York. The lease on MSG will be up in a few years and there are some politicians who are gung-ho about making the arena move.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh true, but I was thinking more currently. If you go through sports history you can find plenty of owners who make James Dolan looking like a genius.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Per the observer: "Madison Square Garden's capacity for house shows (remember, WWE doesn't run TV or PPV there anymore due to the fees MSG charges for broadcast rights) is listed at 12,709, which sounds impossibly small, as even with renovations and the addition of the house show entrance set, it's under the capacity of Barclay's Center for both TV tapings and PPVs with a much bigger stage."

    ReplyDelete
  87. Which is why they usually run Nassau nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think it would have been Al Davis, but, you know. Maybe Jerry Jones?

    ReplyDelete
  89. I forgot all about moving the garden again, heard that last year sometime. They should build the next one on wheels and just shuffle it around as they see fit. As a native NYer that's moved out I don't miss it at all. Certainly not worth the price in my opinion. There will come a day where they can't just name their price and people will jump simply b/c it's NYC.

    ReplyDelete
  90. How come the last PPV at MSG (Survivor Series 2011) has a listed attendance of 16,749 though?

    ReplyDelete
  91. At least the Cowboys have won 3 Super Bowls under Jones. Of course, he did fire Tom Landry, so fuck that guy.

    ReplyDelete
  92. The kids in the audiences really seen to be digging them. At the NXT shows the kids loved then, the grown ups were usually bored when they were out there aside from Kalistos high spots.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Pretty ironic considering Summerslam 1994 was the first ever event at the United Center.

    ReplyDelete

    Those days did come. It was called the 1970s.

    Vince: Goddamn it, if someone hadn't stooged on me to Austin, we'd have six of him!

    HHH: We'll...we'll get him next time.

    Vince: What's Jericho doing?

    HHH: Jesus..I don't think..you know what? Nothing. He's doing nothing. I'll call him.

  100. Hmm, good point. The 12/26/14 house show -- so that means no stage -- had a listed attendance of 14,000. It wasn't a sellout though.

  101. Add Kane there too. Double chokeslam, Big Show has his arms crossed and Kane throws his arms down for the fire.

  102. Infant-like chant? One of their top guys just yells "YES" over and over.

    ReplyDelete
  103. The capacity for basketball is listed as 18,200. I don't see how they put a set up in there that would take up 1/3 of the seats. Maybe the 12,700 number takes into account blocking off upper deck sections they won't sell?

    ReplyDelete
  104. Man, I can barely IMAGINE them as a team. Quite the wrong pairing. Like Tito with Warrior and Hogan at Survivor Series 1990 - dude stuck out in that company!

    ReplyDelete
  105. That has to be it. There's no way MSG only holds 12,700 for wrestling if it holds 18,000 for basketball.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yeah, ok, I'll give you those. But not much devestating besides, like... Variations of the roll-up?

    ReplyDelete
  107. I really wish TNA would get rid of the One Night Only Shows. I know they are to fulfill international and cable obligations, but seriously how many people order them? 5? They use the same handful of formats each year, too and every show ends in a battle royal.

  109. "He even has Phil Jackson -- a guy who knows a thing or two about winning basketball games -- and can't win with him."

    He knew how to win them in the 90's and 00's as a coach, when he had two all-time great players as fulcrums for an offense that's now mostly outdated. I don't think 70-year old Phil has anywhere near the capacity to run a modern NBA organization.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I think they are using the shows almost like tryouts for new talent. They've signed quite a few people after using them at the tapings.


    I don't like how they have nothing to do with current or any storylines. They should explore the iPPV market and air a monthly live PPV for $14.99. I'm sure that would get more buys than the ONO's, but they are probably a bit more costly.

    ReplyDelete
  123. They should probably worry more about using shows to make money.

  124. Just a matter of time before that team gets ruined.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I'd still be pretty confident if I was a Warriors fan. They're in historic territory with their point differential, which is a strong playoff predictor; I think all but one team to have a double digit point differential has won the title. That said, I'm done trying to figure out when the Spurs' window is even closing a little bit.

    My favorite player of all time is Steve Nash, and I loved those mid-00s Suns teams, so my hatred for the Spurs was palpable. But a few things have happened since: the Suns carved up their team and shipped people out for peanuts on the dollar, my favorite player up and broke my heart by signing with my second most hated... and the Spurs kept winning, kept a degree of continuity year after year. My respect for San Antonio grew year after year, and when they came up just short in Miami and went out with absolute class, and then came back and beat the shit out of them the next year?

    I wouldn't say I became a fan, but I definitely root FOR them now instead of against them.

  162. Though J&J wouldn't be a bad fight for them tonight. Squashing J&J and flipping all over the place would be a perfect thing for them to do.

  163. They should've been 4-0. Everyone and their mother were calling bullshit during game 5 in the '13 finals

  164. Pop made a rare playmaking mistake by overly relying on Ginobili in the series they lost...they adjusted and changed strategies in 2014 and dominated the Heat as a result. It was really amazing.

  167. That's the one where they hit the ball and run to the base right?

    He runs... BECAUSE HE MUST!

  168. To clarify, I don't actually think pushing a tag team is akin to hurting kids. I said that poorly, as hyperbole. My fault.

  170. Any chance Batman will actually appear in the Gotham series or is his license tied up in the movies?

    ReplyDelete
  171. wow...yea...that was a lot but I guess in fairness they are trying to revive a property that bombed last time out and...it seems to be a huge part of the movie so probably would have been a really hard thing to sale without revealing it.

    Also of all the money spent on this movie...not like...20 more bucks on John Connor's scar?

  172. Oh yeah, they were on a warpath once they reached the finals

  188. Awful. I was at the game on Saturday and the new stuff they did to the stadium looks really great except the seats out in the upper deck in right field have been replaced with what looks like storage containers. Ugly.
