Truth is, as long as front row keeps selling out within minutes, I think the price hike will slowly keep increasing out of pure curiosity. I know more money helps bring in more outside talent, but its not like that is completely necessary every show. Whatever happend to seeing the local talent?.. Also, I think half of the PwG crowd doesn't even really know what there watching. You got some dude buying like 20 front tix and then 2nd hand sells them to his buddies just to secure front row... You got peeps chanting stupid shit, which has been brought up already on a another thread. I seriously think a true fan brings his friend who doesn't know shit about wrestling, sees a decent show and is all like "this is awesome, I know wrestling now, despite that I've only been at one show" type of attitude. Next thng you know, we have about 20more peeps like those in the legion hall. The crowd has changed drastically over the years... And unless those same people decided to boycott a 'front row sell out' or the show itself, then I highly doubt this issue is ever going to change. Personally, I haven't been to the last (2) shows this year. I'm waiting for a card that's 'stacked'
it is what is is...

The people who set up and run the company, did and do so, because of their passion for professional wrestling, and with the intention of putting on great shows, without the politics that mars other promotions. Once the talent has been paid, and other outgoings met, I can't imagine the company makes too much of a profit. Plus when you think of the risk the wrestlers put their bodies through when they perform, particularly in such a high-octane stage as PWG, I really don't think us fans should complain too much about an increase in ticket prices. PWG, for me, is something to cherish and celebrate. I don't think we should ever take it for granted.

The company can get 2x what they are asking right now, ROH gets $90-$100 easily and PWG has been putting on better shows consistently.
There have been PWG shows where if I was told I had to pay $1,000 to see them I'd be happy to do it. The product is that good.
