When was the last time you attended a WWF show?
* I've never attended a WWF show, though I did attend a WCW PPV in 2000.

How many WWF shows have you gone to in the last year? Last two years?
* Zero in the last year, one WCW in the last two years.

Have you ever attended a Pay-Per-View?
* Yes, the WCW Bash at the Beach in July 2000 in Daytona Beach, with the Booker T world title win.

What's the most you've ever spent on a ticket?
* I don't know, whatever the ticket cost. It was fifth row ringside.

What about indy shows? Have you ever gone to a non-WWF or WCW show?
* I've been to a few unofficial WCW shows, charity cards organized by Ray "Glacier" Lloyd featuring WCW stars. There were a few "All Star Wrestling" shows I attended before that when I was young.

Have you ever attended a show by yourself?
* Nope.

In the last year, how many WWF Pay-Per-Views have you ordered? When was the last time you missed one?
* One, which was the Royal Rumble. The last one I missed was tonight.

Have you ever bought a PPV and watched it by yourself or do watch them with friends and split the cost?
* I usually watch with one or two friends.

How often do you watch Raw and Smackdown? Do you watch it the whole way through or will you turn it off if it's not interesting you?
* I've watched very little lately at all. I watched the first half of this past week's Raw and then wandered off.

In the past year, has something happened that has weakened your interest in the WWF "product"?
* Not really the WWF's fault, but I moved off to college and found other ways to spend my nights.

Do you read spoilers?
* Usually.

When was the last time you bought a WWF shirt, DVD, or other piece of merchandise? How many have you bought in the last year?
* I bought the Kurt Angle "It's True" cap around Christmas, and the only other thing I've bought recently was the "reeking of awesomeness" shirt and cap the Christmas before that.

Do you get behind wrestlers or angles that others on the net tend to bash?
* I like the Taker.

One more question, do you spend more time online reading and talking about wrestling than you do watching it on TV?
* Nowadays, I definitely spend more time reading about it online than I do watching it.

When was the last time you attended a WWF show?
November, 2002. The WWF seems to think West Virginia only deserves to be visited every two years...although, the SmackDown crew was in Wheeling on May 1st and are scheduled to be in Huntington the night before KOTR. That must be one bitch of a covenant agreement the Charleston Civic Center had with WCW...but I digress.

How many WWF shows have you gone to in the last year? Last two years?
None in the last year. See above for second question answer.

Have you ever attended a Pay-Per-View?
Unfortunately, no. That's next on my wrestling "to-do" list.

What's the most you've ever spent on a ticket?
$45 for ringside seats (WWF house show)

What about indy shows? Have you ever gone to a non-WWF or WCW show?
One indy show, one ECW television taping (8/4/2000), and last year's Pillman Memorial.

Have you ever attended a show by yourself?
Yes.

In the last year, how many WWF Pay-Per-Views have you ordered? When was the last time you missed one?
None, because my boyfriend gets them and we watch them together at his place. Last one I missed was "No Mercy" 2000.

Have you ever bought a PPV and watched it by yourself or do watch them with friends and split the cost?
See above.

How often do you watch Raw and Smackdown? Do you watch it the whole way through or will you turn it off if it's not interesting you?
Every week. Raw is really tough to do because I miss the first hour due to rehearsals (believe it or not, I am a classical/opera singer)for a group I sing with. Of the two, I generally tend to pay closer attention to Raw because most of the people I like, with the exception of Chris "if my career was a horse, HHH would be dragging it out behind the barn to shoot it" Jericho, ended up on that particular roster. I generally find myself doing more channel flipping during Smackdown these days, although its got its moments.

In the past year, has something happened that has weakened your interest in the WWF "product"?
I was getting pretty discouraged in the month leading up to WM and the roster split, because I didn't think they were ever gonna bring back the people who were "fired" in the wake of "Survivor Series". Then, when they teamed Jericho with Stephanie, that pretty much damn near made me hit the "off" button on a permanent basis. But it didn't.

Do you read spoilers?
Yes.

When was the last time you bought a WWF shirt, DVD, or other piece of merchandise? How many have you bought in the last year?
Honestly, I can't remember. It's been a while....guess one of the last pieces of merchandise I bought were a couple of the Jakks Pacific figures. And don't really remember how much I bought in the last year because I don't really keep that close track of it.

Do you get behind wrestlers or angles that others on the net tend to bash? For example, do you like the Undertaker even though "he never sells and won't put over young talent"? Do you absolutely hate "What?" because "it's stale" and because it makes it "impossible for heels to cut promos"? Are you Hogan fan? Are you a Kevin Nash or Scott Hall fan?

Yes to all except the Nash & Hall question.

One more question, do you spend more time online reading and talking about wrestling than you do watching it on TV?(watching old tapes doesn't count)
Hmmm.....it's all probably about an equal amount of time.

    Inspired by Guru's post, I have a few questions of my own about everyone's wrestling habits. So, here goes...





    When was the last time you attended a WWF show?

    Never. Here in Germany no way!


    How many WWF shows have you gone to in the last year? Last two years?

    No WWF show, but I was at the WCW show in Oberhausen/Germany on Nov. 16, 2000


    Have you ever attended a Pay-Per-View?

    no


    What's the most you've ever spent on a ticket?

    well, since that WCW show was the only show I ever saw live, it is DM 58, which is about $26-27 today


    What about indy shows? Have you ever gone to a non-WWF or WCW show?

    nope


    Have you ever attended a show by yourself?

    no


    In the last year, how many WWF Pay-Per-Views have you ordered? When was the last time you missed one?

    not ordered, but I watch (or try to watch) every PPV, and the only one I was not interested in was Invasion


    Have you ever bought a PPV and watched it by yourself or do watch them with friends and split the cost?

    well, "buying" here means getting a copy at eBay:-) Just by myself


    How often do you watch Raw and Smackdown? Do you watch it the whole way through or will you turn it off if it's not interesting you?

    I'd watch it, but since WWE gives a crap about the german market, I can't anymore


    In the past year, has something happened that has weakened your interest in the WWF "product"?

    extremely fucking crappy and completely unlogical booking (Booker T + Test losing to Spike + Tazz, Flair + Show losing to Austin), Rock off for longer, stupid ass angles, and most importantly: the same stuff over and over again, no new ideas


    Do you read spoilers?

    yes


    When was the last time you bought a WWF shirt, DVD, or other piece of merchandise? How many have you bought in the last year?

    I don't know if CD's count to merchandise, all I have is "WWF: The music Vol.4 + 5"


    Do you get behind wrestlers or angles that others on the net tend to bash? For example, do you like the Undertaker even though "he never sells and won't put over young talent"? Do you absolutely hate "What?" because "it's stale" and because it makes it "impossible for heels to cut promos"? Are you Hogan fan? Are you a Kevin Nash or Scott Hall fan?

    I'm a human being with my own opinion: I like the Hardyz, I like Stephanie in angles (not in the booking comittee!!!), I think Hulk Hogan as the champ is the most ridiculous, pathetic thing ever and it made the WWE so completely unbelievable that it is just a joke, I think D'Lo Brown is a disgusting blob, I like Jazz's looks, I think Kane belongs on top, I like it that they push Maven a little, because it shows that Tough Enough wasn't for nothing, I loved Austin as a heel, I fucking hate him as a face when he crushes 20 wrestlers at once, I think Kurt Angle doesn't belong to anything lower than the main event, I like heels in general, but I hate the whiny heel they made out of Jericho, I miss TLC matches with E&C, Dudleyz + Hardyz, because back then the tag title was the hottest thing, I like to see Vince McMahon cutting promos


    //EDIT! One more question, do you spend more time online reading and talking about wrestling than you do watching it on TV?(watching old tapes doesn't count)

    yes, that's because I can't watch it on TV, and that's the only chance left to be up to date

When was the last time you attended a WWF show?

last night

How many WWF shows have you gone to in the last year? Last two years?

one...last night


Have you ever attended a Pay-Per-View?

yes....last night


What's the most you've ever spent on a ticket?

$30 bucks


What about indy shows? Have you ever gone to a non-WWF or WCW show?

Yes, but not because I wanted to


Have you ever attended a show by yourself?

Nope


In the last year, how many WWF Pay-Per-Views have you ordered? When was the last time you missed one?

ordered? one...missed? none


Have you ever bought a PPV and watched it by yourself or do watch them with friends and split the cost?


a little from column A, a little from column B


How often do you watch Raw and Smackdown? Do you watch it the whole way through or will you turn it off if it's not interesting you?

I watch the whole way through due to my fear of the show not continuing to suck once I turn it off.


In the past year, has something happened that has weakened your interest in the WWF "product"?

botched angles


Do you read spoilers?

sometimes


When was the last time you bought a WWF shirt, DVD, or other piece of merchandise? How many have you bought in the last year?

No shirts, did get Beyond the Mat though...

I DO happen to think that Billy Gunn is a hell of a wrestler who is athletic, sells very well, and throws great punches. He's been damned by internet smarks just for almost killing Benoit a couple years back. I also love watching SCSA.

//EDIT! One more question, do you spend more time online reading and talking about wrestling than you do watching it on TV?(watching old tapes doesn't count)

I spend WAY to much time on the net at work...and yes most of it is wrestling content. So I guess I do spend more time reading than watching.

When was the last time you attended a WWF show?
WrestleMania X8 in Toronto

How many WWF shows have you gone to in the last year? Last two years? Before WM, the last show I attended was a RAW in Detroit. Don't remember when it was, but it was over a year ago. Before that, I can't remember.

Have you ever attended a Pay-Per-View?
Yep, several. Let me see if I can remember them: In Your House III with Shawn-Diesel/Yoko-Davey Boy; SummerSlam '93 with Lex/Yoko; Survivor Series '98(?) with debut of Kurt Angle, Austin run down, and Big Show title win; and WMX8. I think that's it.

What's the most you've ever spent on a ticket
WrestleMania tickets at $80 apiece

What about indy shows? Have you ever gone to a non-WWF or WCW show? I went to an ECW show once

Have you ever attended a show by yourself?
no

In the last year, how many WWF Pay-Per-Views have you ordered? When was the last time you missed one?
I usually don't order the PPVs, I go to the local Hooters which shows them for free. I can't remember the last one I missed. I think it was the one last summer with the HHH/Jericho Last Man Standing match

Have you ever bought a PPV and watched it by yourself or do watch them with friends and split the cost?
Used to order them with friends, but now we go to Hooters. Last PPV I ordered and watched by myself was the last WWA PPV just to check it out and see what it was about

How often do you watch Raw and Smackdown? Do you watch it the whole way through or will you turn it off if it's not interesting you?
I catch RAW every week and watch it all the way through. Usually read the Smackdown Spoilers and only watch it if I'm home. I don't go out of my way to catch it like I usually do for RAW

In the past year, has something happened that has weakened your interest in the WWF "product"?
Staleness of the storylines. So many opportunities to do something huge, but failing. Everytime I'm about ready to give up, something "big" happens and I have to watch. The Invasion, the nWo, the Draft, etc. Unfortunately, they haven't been able to follow up on these "major" events and three weeks later it's back to square one again

Do you read spoilers?
Yes

When was the last time you bought a WWF shirt, DVD, or other piece of merchandise? How many have you bought in the last year?
I can't remember. I think it was the WrestleMania 17 DVD.


Do you get behind wrestlers or angles that others on the net tend to bash? For example, do you like the Undertaker even though "he never sells and won't put over young talent"? Do you absolutely hate "What?" because "it's stale" and because it makes it "impossible for heels to cut promos"? Are you Hogan fan? Are you a Kevin Nash or Scott Hall fan?
I like things that entertain me. Undertaker has been entertaining me a lot lately, until he gets in the ring. I've always been a fan of Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, and Chris Benoit. They were the only reasons I would watch WCW. When they jumped, I pretty much stopped watching WCW. So, I do like some of the "internet darlings" and some of the "internet bastards". If they entertain ME, regardless of what the net says, then I like them.

One more question, do you spend more time online reading and talking about wrestling than you do watching it on TV?
Well, seeing as how I work at an internet company and am online 8 hours a day 5 days a week, I read and talk about wrestling a lot when I'm at work to pass the time. I only really watch RAW, catch Smackdown when I can, and watch the weekend shows when I'm at home on Saturday night. So I MAYBE watch 4 hours of wrestling a week and "talk" and read about wrestling a lot more than that. However, if I didn't work at an ISP, I think I would rarely even be on the net and talking about it, and would probably be enjoying myself a whole lot more

It's nice to get reminders of where I come from and why I'm so glad I left there and should never go back. St. Louis, Misery is a a boring boring place filled with malcontent. Great place for a go home hype show to a ppv!
