It was surprisingly easy to get the tickets. Took a whole 4 minutes on ticketmaster.com as opposed to the hour or so it usually takes. I ended up getting the $50 seats down in section 104 (which is supposedly full view, as opposed to he tickets I almost got which weren't). Just for kicks, I decided to see how easy it would be to get tickets for the Raw in Boston and Smackdown in Manchester. Found floor seats within seconds for Smackdown and seats just above the floor for Raw. I then proceeded to kick myself as I realized how I could have gotten much better seats for a good $10 less had I chose to go to one of those shows while also having less of a drive and nt being in the most ghetto arena I've ever been in in my life. Seriously, what is the WWE doing putting Backlash in the Centrum Centre? It looks all nice and pretty from the outside, but once you get in, it looks like its about to fall apart at any second. Oh well, I get to go see Goldberg!!! (Wait, do I care?)

Wow, that's so awesome! Represent 'tha NH to the fullest! I still have yet to see a live WWE event, unless you count the OVW Rock 'n Rumble that I went to, which had some WWF (at that time) stars as special guests, plus some of the OVW people have since turned into WWE wrestlings. Alright, have a good time, Leech, and think of me! I mean, sort of--

PS Goldberg still rulez!~

It was probably easy to get decent seats due to all 3 shows being in generally the same geographic area. Many probably can't afford to go to all 3 shows even if they wanted too so they have to chose between one of them. As far as having it at the Centrum, since the RR was at the Fleet I'm guessing the WWE doesn't put PPV's in the same arena again in a short period of time. Maybe Backlash could've been in Manchester and Worcester had Smackdown instead?

I haven't been to the Centrum in years but I don't remember being as bad as you've described it. If it is then that's pretty sad as it was built about 20 years ago or so. You figure it would hold up longer than that.

Wait, lemmee see if I got this straight ... Are you calling Worcester a "ghetto area"?

And the Centrum isn't THAT bad ... Although having a PPV there seems to be a bad omen; the only other wrestling pay per view to be in that building (and someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I'm fairly sure) was the one for WCW where Eric Bischoff challenged Vince McMahon to a match.

Not too long after that, WCW went under ... A sign of things to come? Hmmm.

    I believe he called the Centrum a "ghetto arena", not Worcester a "ghetto area". I guess some might think the Centrum is old and run down though, considering the Fleet Center was opened in '95 and the Verizon Wireless Arena is less than 2 years old. Compared to those arenas I could see why some might think that way.

    Whoops, missed just one letter, and the whole meaning changed ... My bad.

    Look at the bright side. If you don't purchase tickets to a PPV, you still have to pay to watch it. If you don't purchase tickets to RAW or SD, you can still watch it for free. If you have to choose 1 of the 3, you made the right choice in picking the 1 where you have to pay no matter what to watch it.



    Nice to see the Red Sox have decided to go 'Arsonist By Committee'. Now, where's the nearest bridge?
