Why do I have a feeling Joey Janela is gonna actually win the GCW title this weekend only to be cashed in on by Mance Warner? Warner has that title shot he can cash in at any time.

Use this thread for any collective shows, yeah. That's what we usually do.

I had a weekend pass to the Collective here in Dallas, two years ago, I didn't even wanna attempt trying to go to more shows lmao It doesn't feel as hype outside of Bloodsport to me this year tho. I like a lot of the foreign talent they've brought in this year, but I don't give a shit about Spring Break

Wait I take that back, the clusterfuck Spring Break with the Punjabi Prison intrigues me but that's not the main show

Outside some select matches here and there, this for sure feels less hype that last year. maybe its cuz we were coming out of pandemic mode still a bit, or maybe it's just that Mania with wwe this hot is kinda of sucking the air out of a lot of the indies in town?

Yeah seeing 13k for the NXT show is insane how early it is. Everyone coming into town this year probably had WWE events as a way higher priority and not just Mania.

Supercard has like 3k sold I think but who knows about these shows

3k for roh seems pretty standard for tk era ppvs ya? lower end of a dynamite crowd essentially

I don't actually know for comparison but it was def higher than I expected. I think the most fair would be the last two Mania weekend crowds for the super cards tho
