Regarding WrestleMania, we’re told that Highspots was able to get local hotel for shows and a convention in the area as did the WWN crew. ROH is still undecided about coming due to difficulty in getting a location. WWE attempted to lock everyone out, and no public facilities will rent to any wrestling groups, nor will San Jose State University. But you can’t lock up counties completely.

Bit pathetic to me to hear about the WWE trying to squash indy feds, it would be like Pizza Hut trying to hurt a local pizza joint. Indy feds grow wrestling, shame that the WWE has little respect for wrestling by the sounds of it.

I think the thing that really set the WWE off last year was that Wrestlecon was literally right across the street from Axxess.

WrestleCon:

Quote:
Despite the numerous challenges presented by property restrictions, we wanted to let everybody know that we’re going to be back next year. Our event will take place in San Jose, CA and will be held on Friday March 27th and Saturday March 28th.

As many of your know, the WWE imposed restrictions on all buildings that are owned by the city of San Jose and Santa Clara. They also imposed non-competes with all the hotel chains that are utilized by the WWE as a corporate client (which is most of the major chains). We certainly understand WWE’s desire to eliminate all non-WWE events from the area, and justifiably don’t share our vision that Mania weekend has turned into a destination to see wrestling/meet wrestlers beyond the scope of their current WWE Universe. Therefore, we are placed in a position to either move the event outside of the “center of the action” or find a property that has no restrictions and limitations placed upon it. Since we realize that we’re nothing more than a compliment to the WWE events, we felt that location was the most important aspect to our event and have sacrificed options that are larger and more typical of our past events in favor of a smaller location that is centrally located.

Our host hotel will be the San Jose Garden Airport, as well as another hotel soon to be announced that are offering special rates for Wrestlecon. These hotels were chosen because of their fantastic location and their access to the light rail system that connects all the WWE events during the weekend.

We learned several things from last year that will be corrected:

1. There will be no registration/check-in process this year. Tickets will be either electronically issued/scanned or needed credentials will be shipped in advance.

2. All featured guests will be in a separate area than the main space to alleviate the congestion in the main room.

3. There will be maps distributed both online and at the event signifying the locations of all the talent/signings.

4. RG Promotions is banned from all future WrestleCon events. Not only did they fail to live up to their obligations as a vendor at the event, they failed to properly address issues after the event.

5. “Walk up” Admission tickets will be capped and potentially eliminated entirely. WE realize that trying to get both advance ticket holders and these walk up customers through the doors at the same time created unnecessary chaos.

What we know for sure at this point:

WE will have hotel partners that have offered a $124 rate that will be ready to book within the next few days. One of these two hotels will be the location of the WrestleCon event.There will be at least one live wrestling event (likely held on Saturday night going up against the Hall of Fame). We are still searching for a partner to hold a second, stand alone event on Friday night.We will return a WrestleCon superticket option on both Friday and Saturday that has 10+ wrestlers in a single line for photo ops/autographs during a designated time period. Entry to the superticket will be done in numerical order, so you can enter the line anytime your number is “ready”.

1) You do not need an inside contact at ROH or another indy promotion nor do you require a law or business degree to figure out that the WWE CANNOT expel competitors from offering events from private venues. All you need is common sense. If the indy promotions believe they will earn enough money to constitute operating an event they will indeed operate it, just not at a city owned venue.

I work in the soccer field and one similarity I can tell you that is similar is FIFA's contract with host nations for the World Cup which requires no major sporting events to be held in the country during the same time as the World Cup. That is a national law that is created specifically for the event by a national government.

2) After attending numerous wrestling and tourist events in New Orleans earlier this year (DG USA, ROH, Kaiju, WM, RAW) I wish that WM was held in NOLA every year. It was a ridiculously fun time with everything in close proximity of each other (minus ROH which was a $80 cab ride RT from the French Quarter). Centralizing fans is good for business and offers a true wrestling culture for fans to thoroughly enjoy. Running into fans from around the world at every corner was simply phenomenal. You will not get the same experience in the Bay Area, Dallas, NYC, Miami, or in my home city of Toronto. NOLA was truly something special.

3) Personally, if there were no indy shows at WM in 2015, me and my amazingly fun and hot girlfriend who actually enjoys wrestling (a rarity I know) would likely not go. The full WM weekend experience now must INCLUDE the indy and alternate wrestling events ie Wrestlecon. She loves Kaiju and I love ROH and DG. Presuming we still went without any indy shows, there is no way I would pay for Axxess or the HOF given the cost/value proposition.
