Re: Anyone Ever go to WWF New York?

Never when it was the WWF cafe, but I did go four years ago. It's a Hard rock cafe now and they had the Wrestlemania 25 press conference there. Didn't really get to check it out though, was just there for the conference.

PPVs Attended:

Survivor Series: November 20, 2011. Madison Square Garden. I was chanting The Rock's name!

Tables Ladders & Chairs
: December 16, 2012. Barclays Center

Wrestlemania XXIX: April 7, 2013. Metlife Stadium

Re: Anyone Ever go to WWF New York?

WWE New York was a dream come true for wrestling fans. I used to live in New York and I went there to eat twice (around the age of 13) and visited the gift shop a few more times than that. The gift shop was awesome. I wasn't into the merch heavily and honestly I don't think I ever bought anything. But the genius of the gift shop was that they played entrance videos there. While everyone one else was buying stuff I was fixated on the screen as I used to be obsessed with titantron videos and themes. They also had a few wrestling artifacts on display.

In the restaurant showed old matches on repeat. I remember watching Cactus Jack and Hunter Hearst Helmsley (managed by Chyna) go at it. It ended with HHH receiving a piledriver through the table.
The food was decent and there was a lot of space. They even had an Oxygen bar (which was popular back then.)

It's a shame they closed.

Re: Anyone Ever go to WWF New York?

I went there a few times. I went at night once, and it was pretty packed. Went during the day another time for some lunch with a couple of my friends, and it was quiet. They had good enough/decent food, and the overall atmosphere of the place was pretty cool, if you're a wrestling fan. So, I liked it. Never got a chance to go to the bar as I was still underage in those years. I also remember the merchandise store was pretty awesome and just packed with a ton of stuff.

They closed because they weren't taking enough dough to pay those outrageous times sq lease.i used to go in all the tone when I was working on a site a few blocks away and it used to be empty,very rare rely did they have a good crowd at least not during the day...and in times sq with all that traffic abd as nice a size place that was to not pull in crowds was cool when you first walks in because the had are the giants boots on a display case.
