Live from Bakersfield ...

Here I thought I was going to a regular ol' house show in Bakersfield. Well, apparently not! Looks like ECW/SmackDown are going to be in Japan next week. (Same time as Raw is in Australia.) So we did *next* week's ECW/SS/SmackDown taping tonight!

When I got to the arena, I was ... confused. It's been a while since I've been to a house show, but seeing the stage, & TV cameras, & pyro (!!!). Uh, this is a lot of overhead for a house show!

Somewhat delicate problem getting the live audience up to speed with the developments that were taped yesterday, but which haven't aired yet. So there were some slightly odd crowd responses in a few places. Eh, they have a week to fix it in post, eh?

But really, how fun is this as a surprise?!

This has happened to me a couple of times with Superstars tapings back before the days of internet and wrestling message boards. You'd show up for a regular old Tuesday night house show and find out they'd be taping that night.
That usually meant seeing The Big Bossman come out four separate times, but it was fun knowing storylines that would be happening in the coming month before everyone else did.

The biggest tip-off when you arrived would be seven or eight tractor trailer trucks parked outside versus one or two.
I also caught on that anytime the ads for the show promised "over 50 Superstars will be there" you knew it was a taping.

That happened to you, too?

I think my experience was June 15th 1993.

Two day after the first King of the Ring. They recorded three weeks of Superstars in Huntington, WV.

That was also the week Money Inc and the Steiners traded the titles on Monday night at a house show and later in the week.

I think I saw Crush twice and various other wrestlers a few times.

Yeah, TV tapings can be awesome but sometimes they REALLY zap you if the head past the 3hr mark.

And how pissed am I that it's not the reverse?

Sorry Vince, I'll not be plonking down my hard earned to see Orton and Superman Cena thank you.

So Emma, did you pay normal house show prices, or were these tickets oddly inflated?

Just curious

Well I *started* to say that house show & TV shows are the same pricing. The tickets I like are typically $40US -- that's what I paid for both Fresno & Bakersfield. But it just occurred to me that the house show in San Diego that I just got back from (Yes, I'm on a California tour too!) was $50 for an equivalent location. Not sure what that was about!

No tractor-trailer trucks at all on the side of the building I came in on. I can only assume they were all piled up on the other side of the building. And since I had just come in from out of town, I hadn't seen any local advertising. So no clue at all til I actually got into the building! :-)
