Whoooo! I have got great tix! I'm in the 9th row on the floor. Luckily for me I'm pretty tall , so I should be able to see pretty well over the eight people in front of me, at least when they're not waving their signs around. And my signs might actually make TV!
I went to targetcenter.com to try to figure out exactly where I'll be, but the bastards' "seat locator" page only includes the basketball and concert configurations. But when the ticket lady showed me her little chart, it was definitely one of the short sides of the rectangle, not one of the long sides, which should mean that I'll either be near the ramp, or behind the announce table.
One sign I'm sure to bring -- "I Started 'Shave Your Back'". Actually it was my wife that thought of it, last time SD! was in Mpls, but she's not coming this time. Too bad I'm not a little bit closer or Albert might tear it up. That would rule. (Come to think of it, just 'cause I'm nine rows back, that doesn't mean I might not be right next to the ramp. If I'm on the ramp side and not the announce table side.)
I don't have any point, just excited to be going to the show and having a good seat. Also that it's the last free TV before the Rumble. I usually enjoy those shows on TV, since instead of a bunch of individual feuds, all of the title contender level guys are at each others throats, on account of the unique nature of the rumble. Anyway, I'm anticipating a fun show.

I got tickets too today...I didn't get as lucky though. I got section 131 on row T...I think. Sheesh...and I looked RIGHT when it turned 10:00 on my computer too. They were 40 bucks though so I guess they couldn't be TOO bad.
I also got tickets today, although to the live RAW on the 19th in Green Bay. Pretty good seats too, the second row in the lower mezz. section. I won't get floor seats unless they're in the first couple rows, since it's so difficult to see further back. Lucky for me, I have a crapload of comp passes that I won when the WWE used to run those trivia games on AOL. This'll be my fifth free show in a row, so I've now used up 10 of my 18 comps. Unfortunely, to use them, you have to actually go to the box office, so I had to get up early, drive 45 minutes, and wait outside in the cold to get them, but the $80+ I saved is worth it.

So what you do if they don't have a "WWE" configuration map, is compare against an "end stage" configuration map -- for example here (ticketmaster.com). The end where the stage is is (with 98% assurance) the end where the stage/titantron/ramp will be. So for your venue, the section 121 area is where the stage (almost certainly) will be. Let me guess though -- your tickets are for a section with a name like "FLR 2", or something equally cryptic, right? :-) Think of it as an adventure! Besides, it's entirely possible that the ushers & such won't have a clue either!
One interesting thing that I've seen occasionally... (eg. recently in Anaheim) If they have empty seats in the main section opposite the fixed camera (due to no-shows or unclaimed held-back seats -- looks like section 131 in your venue), WWE staff will herd people over to fill those, often from an equivalent distance of the floor section. So, if you're really lucky, you might even get an upgrade!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news - but I know from experience with TV tapings that they never stop waving their signs around. They wave them when the guy it references isn't wrestling, they wave them during commercials - they wave them before the show starts. The people who think they're very clever because they came up with that "GAME OVER" or "BICHOFF SUX" or "CENA" sign aren't the brightest people in the world.

1. Nidia can't see Cena 2. I lost $50 on Funaki 3. Team Lesnar needs Velour 4. Joe Horn was calling the Cat's Momma 5. Hardcore Holly needs a Hug. 6. Big Show fears Atkins 7. L-s G--rr-r-s st-l- my v-w-ls 8. I saw Bradshaw drinking Zima
Well, I went on Ticketmaster and saw what they had for one seat and managed to get floor 8 in the 14th row. A LITTLE better, even though I'm sure the majority people in front of me will have signs blocking me out...
