To follow up an earlier report last week regarding ticket sales for WWE's Breaking Point PPV tonight in Montreal, Jim Ross noted on his website that ticket sales are over 10,000 now and looks to be around a $700,000 gate. While not bad by any means, it is still down dramatically from the last time WWE was in Montreal for a PPV in 2003 with No Way Out that drew 15,100 fans. It is possible that walk ups and comps could come close or equal to that attendance on Sunday. Either way, there was some concern in WWE early on when only 9,000 tickets had been sold in advance.
On Friday night's edition of Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann named Jeff Hardy the "Worst Person In The World." He was arrested Friday on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steroids, after a search of his house yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine, and drug paraphernalia. The "Worst Person" segment is a nightly feature in which Olbermann recounts a recent news story involving people saying or doing something that Olbermann finds objectionable. In response to some critics, Olbermann has stated that the title of "Worst Person" is satirical and not meant to be a literal description. Hardy's mug shot was used for his "Worst Person In The World" graphic. To view the brief clip, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_chDxifjmKA
The Jeff Hardy story has absolutely spiked our website traffic. Usually the weekends are slow and traffic is always down on Friday and especially Saturday. That is not the case this weekend. Thanks for your continued support!! Have a great rest of the weekend.
