  1. Interesting that they are trying to break into Europe. Possibly giving up a little on the American market with AEW coming?

    • If memory serves, they announced this at WK along with a Dallas show. I think it’s more about expanding worldwide than worrying about what others are doing. They also went to Australia last year. I’m happy they are going to different places, but I hope they do a better job of focusing on the expansion in the U.S. They just seem to announce shows and hope for the best. I’d love to see what would happen if they spent some ad money in the markets they run in. And Dallas is great, but they really need to get into hotbed markets like Chicago and some of the east coast cities beyond the MSG event with ROH.
