Y!: # 1 Posted on 5.12.04 2230.01 | Instant Rating: 7.00 takes you to a house show report on the Observer for 12.05.2004 Smackdown house show at Madison Square Garden. Pay close attention to the first line of the report where it shows the attendance. Isn't there something a little... odd about that, considering it's an MSG show?

This isn't the old days of MSG where the McMahon's would bang the place out with 22,000 plus every month. If they were doing that, they would book MSG every month for a house show, rather than just once every six months. The world needs another Warrior Manifesto.

AIM: # 3 Posted on 6.12.04 0911.23 | Instant Rating: 0.21 Also consider that the WWE claims MSG as their home arena and a reliable sell-out, and that figure holds a bit more reason as to why the WWE needs to change its gameplan. YAPPAPI STRAPPATION, BROTHER!!!

AIM: # 4 Posted on 6.12.04 1145.18 | Instant Rating: 7.00 I was there Sunday and the floor was was packed, but beyond that, in the section I was in and above it was a sea of turquoise and blue empty seats. Some people were sitting in our seats and we got even better ones by just moving a bit. But its like RSN said, it is the current wrestling climate.

At least it wasn't like 1,000 or 2,000.

I think Josh Matthews was really trying and doing his best and did a good job of commentating the show, but Ernest The Cat Miller was just all round terrible on this show.
