Now more than ever, the world needs a good dose of positivity. We here at Cageside Seats will do our small part to bring that positivity on a daily basis. Throughout the entirety of 2017, we’ll say something nice about wrestling and everything around it, past, present, and future.
As a reminder, only positive comments are allowed here. No negative comments, no troll comments, no back-handed compliments. None of that here. You have the rest of the site for that. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.
Today’s subject: house shows. Last night, I joined three other Cagesiders (Chris “BaconStrips” Dawson, Caitlyn(ah12), and The Master Geek) for a NXT live event.
First off, house shows are way more fun with friends. Second, they’re often more affordable. Sure you’ll likely not get a title change or the chance to get on TV, but you’ll see wrestlers that won’t have the pressure of performing with dozens of television cameras and hundreds of thousands or millions of eyes on their every move.
The house shows serve as a test balloon for potential matches that you’ll see on TV down the road.
Plus (and full disclosure, I’ve only been to two house shows, so I could be wrong) crowds tend to be less snarky and more fun. Basically, what I’m saying is this: if you have the means to go to a house show when one comes your way, do yourself a favor: go. You’ll thank me later.
Your turn. Say something nice about house shows.
Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I will read it.
