    There's being so many shoot interviews and dvds about every wrestlers nowadays that there's not much more to tell plus I doubt he would say anything controversial but if you're a big fan of his I'd say it could be his only Irish show for a while if ever, Scott Hall is also doing a Q & A show in Cork later this month 30th of September


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    bite the bullet and bought a ticket to this

    obv he will say the same things hes siad prev on DVDS/Shoot interviews etc but be good to see him in person in such a small venue

    been years since i was in Vicar street but ill be in Dublin at 3.30pm so have enough time to find it. Any nice pubs around it

    Def Heuston station , Its about a 10 - 15 min walk from Heuston , Just walk up the hill (along the luas line) and turn left and keep walking and you will see it on the right hand side of the road

    getting the 3pm bus up from Waterford

    doors at 7.30pm


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Vicar Street is a very intimate place

    looking forward to this now


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    decent enough night but didnt talk much about matches,kliq etc

    even joked himself about it being a bit tame lol

    overall cool to see him in person, everyone was in good form and the presenter Siad we might get future shows Goldberg, Sting, Paul Heyman

    I wonder would guys like Taker, Triple H (although hes pretty busy with company matters) etc do events like these


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,553 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Nice Guy


    Was there a big turnout?


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,030 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Was there a big turnout?

    they said there was over 1000 people there

    all the seats were sold out and a few people standing on the balconys too


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,023 ✭✭✭seandotcomm


    Really enjoyed it. presenter guy did his best to keep the conversation away from the usual questions people would ask re: the screwjob, etc.
    Shawn was never gona throw anybody under the bus at this point in his career so there wasn't any dirt dished or anything like that but I loved the story about how the last match with Taker came about. Hadn't heard that before. Meet and greet was very well handled aswell

    yeah loved the taker story and how taker found out like the rest of us watching the slammys on TV lol. Liked the Intercon title story too when he got suspended while he was champ and Razor Ramon went on to win the vacated title and Michaels refused to give it back

    never listened to Inside the ropes podcast but will be In the future, he's a good presenter

    I'd imagine Paul Heyman and maybe Goldberg, Broken Matt shows would sell out here but would there be bit demand for guys like Sting and other legends. Id go to a Stone Cold or Triple H show in a flash

    Me and the lads I went with all found it very disappointing.

    Didn't expect anyone to be thrown under the bus but we had hoped for more behind the stories and fun around matches. Bar the ladder match, his comeback match and the retirement match we got very little of it.

    Considering he's won two Rumbles, was in the first ever Hell in a Cell, was involved in the first Tyson angle etc, there were loads of areas left out.

    It was a standard run through of his career chronologically that I'd say if you weren't a fan for large parts (or any) of HBK's two runs, there wasn't anything you wouldn't have already been aware of in my opinion.

    Agree the presenter did well to not go down the route of Montreal/one more match etc but overall it was a major let down for us.

    One of the lads near us on the way out summed it up well for me, he said if it was a podcast it would be a grand listen but you wouldn't recommend it to a mate or anything like that.

    I'd still be interested in Heyman (cos he's always great value and not afraid to speak his mind) or Sting (cos I'm a lifelong fan) but would be very wary of going again.

    it was a great feeling seeing Shawn in person cause i grew up watching him and never seen him at an wwe event (went to the taker night in 2009 instead of the DX one)

    Id go again but really depends on who it is, Not into Paul Heyman but id go to a Sting (has to be in his makeup though lol) or a Goldberg one. Id love a Stone Cold one. Dont think Undertaker would do one of these tbh

    WWE - Shawn Michaels: My Journey [DVD] https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003GTR25I/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_apa_HR-xAbPA0KWSX

    this is a good DVD featuring interviews with Shawn about major matches in his career

    one thing I only remembered watching back footage was the awesome heel HBK promo in Monteral in 2005 where he ripped shreds out of the crowd and got them to fake Bret Hart return
