As a show, meh. Typical house show.

As a production, I can't begin to say how much more I love the toned down non-TV look. The different lighting, the smaller stage, etc. Feels old school, doesn't feel totally overproduced, more intimate, whatever. Gives it that old 80s smoky bingo hall feel.

I passed up an opportunity to go. Just felt cheaply done and also poorly promoted to me. I wanna go to an NXT Takeover more than anything.

Survivor Series is in Chicago next year so that could be your big chance for TakeOver. Or, if the rumors are true and WM36 is in Minneapolis, you could come kick it here.

Didn't that set the attendance record at Hoosier Dome?

Super papered show. They gave away literally tens of thousands of tickets. That was at one of WWF's lowest points. The steroid scandal was brewing around Hogan, the ring boy thing was happening, etc. and business was at rock bottom.

How was any of that Indy's fault?

Fuckers didn't show up. Many who did, didn't pay. Also, who wants to travel to fuckin Indiana anyway? It is slightly worse than Ohio and slightly more relevant than Iowa.

-Sports fans (hosted Super Bowl 45, countless NCAA tournaments including 3 Final 4's in the last 10 years, The Big Ten Football Championship annually, the NFL Combine, rated top 5 in visiting fans for NFL season;etc)
-Horror/SciFi fans (hosts the top 2 rated conventions in the Midwest annually)
-Comic fans (#2 biggest comic convention in the Midwest behind Chicago)

And last but not least

-Wrestling fans (have hosted Summerslam, Survivor Series, Great American Bash, Clash of the Champions, Wrestlemania, countless Raw/SD)

Can't be any worse than cold ass Minnesota in April where a blizzard is likely.
