How early should I show up to a show?

Hope i'm posting this in the right section...

I'm going to NXT Takeover and the Raw after survivor series. I haven't been to a live show in about 11 years. For those who go often how early should i show up to the arena? Ticket time says show starts 7:30. What would you suggest?

Thanks

Nice, thanks for the uncalled for sarcastic answer. Now if someone with a bit of common courtesy could give me answer I would appreciate it

It depends if you want merch or not. I've never been to a Raw, only Live events, but the merch lines are ridiculous. Other than that I don't really know.

Re: How early should I show up to a show?

They might film some stuff for the NXT weekly show before Takeover, so I would aim for maybe an hour to an hour and a half for NXT. They open the doors around an hour before anything gets underway though, but you don't want to be stuck in long queues to get in or to get food and you don't want to be walking in the dark looking for your seats after it starts.

Met Mox on March 28 2015/April 2 2016/August 20 2016/April 1 2017/April 7 2019!!
Met Roman on April 2 2016/April 7 2018!! Met Seth on March 31 2017/April 6 2019!!

Upcoming shows: WWE Melbourne, October 23 2019

Depends on if you want to see the Superstars taping or not.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

Re: How early should I show up to a show?

I went to MITB this year and showed up just about an hour before it was scheduled to start. The lines weren't too bad and they opened the doors to the arena a couple minutes after I showed up (thank goodness they did because it was 115 degrees in Vegas the time). Had plenty of time to find my seats and they had 2 matches on the preshow which began 30-35 minutes before the PPV so the wait wasn't bad either. I didn't go to the merchandise areas so I'm not sure how long the wait would be with those.
