    I don’t see WWE making too much of a dent in the AAA gate. AAA will have their biggest names on that card while WWE will probably have only one or two of their biggest names and probably in throw away matches. Expect Alberto Del Rio to be headlining these shows. One has to wonder if WWE will try to pass off Sin Cara as a major star, even though he’s even lost career momentum in Mexico.

    As a proud HAMILTONIAN I’m happy to see only 3,600 fans come to WWE’s stupid house show in our 17,500 arena. As for my favorite city in the world to visit-MONTREAL BABY!-I’m also proud to only 6,000 in their 21,009 plus
