Cicero Stadium looks to be a legitimate sell out. The production quality is very high but there does seem to be some static issues with the mic. Not sure if you'll be able to tell on TV or if it's just issues

Match 5: Myron Reed def. Ace Austin
Very fun bout. Best of the night so far.
Match 6: Size Matters (Joey Ryan & Swoggle) def. The Dirty Blondes
Joey Ryan comes to the ring with his arm in a sling. He says that last night in Austin, TX he tore his pec muscle, "That seems to be going around a bit." He doesn't have a diagnosis for how bad it is, he has not seen a doctor yet. He did promise Swoggle that he would be his partner for tonight so even with one arm, they are going to win tonight.
Joey legitimately did not use his left, injured arm the entire match. Following the bout he removed his sling to show the crowd a massive bruise on the upper part of his arm. He then said he thinks he is going to need surgery and does not know how long he'll be out of action.
