I just checked the Network schedule and it says the MSG show tonight starts at 8pm ET and runs until 10:30pm ET. I’m gonna be at the show tonight and the tickets say it starts at 7:30. So that’s obviously what time the dark match starts. It should be a fun show. I’m curious to see how the arena is set up for this(the stage, entrance, lighting, etc.) if they use the regular house show setup or if they use a TV taping setup.
My guess is its the regular house show set, after all its still a house show…just like the Japan show was a very simple setup as it was advertised as a house show.
I wonder if this will be released on DVD, if so it will probably UK exclusive like Beast in the East.
Yeah, you can bet if this gets a DVD/BR release, it won’t be in the US. As far as the show itself, I thought it was OK. I was surprised the Dudleyz didn’t win the belts. I thought for sure they were gonna win them since it was in NY and it was the only other match on the show that was hyped beforehand. Also I hated seeing Cena beat Rollins. Again. What is that like the 4th time Cena has beat him in the last month? Smh
I’m really glad there’s another Table for 3. That’s probably one of the best original shows they’ve put on there.
