I'm going to night 1, pretty excited for the big tag match and Fenix vs Trevor.

Hey be sure to find me. I'll be wearing a White Sox hat, Zack Sabre shirt. I'm still sick but will be tossing out solid fist bumps all night.

Never saw you around, I was in the back corner.

Night 1 was sort of underwhelming, I'm very surprised to hear that everyone thought the big tag match was so good as Strickland is the only guy that really brings any effort in AAW. Elgin vs Penta or ACH vs Stallion were the best matches to me.

I know the Berwyn Eagles club has some historical significance to AAW but that venue is bad. I'd love for them to just run Logan Square and Bourbon St as far as the Chicago locations are concerned.

Looking forward to seeing night 2 but I'm in no rush after night 1.

I'm fucking pumped for this LaSalle Ultimo Dragon joint. Excited to finally check out AAW outside of random youtube matches.

Anyone know when the Logan Square show is going on sale? Also, anyone have any idea how to get to and from there from the North Shore?

I'm pretty sure that I read they will be on sale once 11/3 and 11/4 sell out.

The venue is pretty close to a blue line stop, or just take Lake Shore, get off at Fullerton and take it a few miles west.

I'll see you there. We can argue about WWE in person finally.

It's very close to a number of transportation options including the Blue Line or if all else fails or doesn't work out, you can just take a Lyft and Uber though you should be able to easily find some combo of buses/subways to get you there.

Hoping to try and make it. If I do, I owe you a firm handshake.

Looking forward to it. I'll be sure to wear my "Vince is infallible" t-shirt and Triple H hat.

Yeah, now that i'm fully committed, I'm less worried and have already told my brother in law he is responsible to get me back to my family one way or another.

There's a decent amount of street parking too, especially on the outer Logan Blvd, although as note the Blue Line is the best bet.

Cabana had mentioned of doing another podcast taping a couple blocks north before hand. Very limited room though if it happens.

They're bringing Naito in to wrestle Sami Callahan on February 17th. Interesting that Naito is taking all of these indie dates not in ROH right after a lot of people assume he is winning the IWGP Title. I had assumed the Glory Pro thing was a favor to Elgin.

He's also doing Wrestling Revolver the same weekend.
