Does anyone know where I can catch the rugby game before the event?
Looks like there is a pub opposite the train station showing it, me and the mrs will probably watch it there before heading to the show...
That pub is HORRIBLE. Find a better one.
MOJ's first rule of travel: The nearest pub to a train station is always dodgy. no exceptions.
WOW how high are your standards? Normally I agree about train station pubs but there was nothing wrong with the Swindon one. Just before we left for the wrestling people were coming in to start their night out and their were some quality birds! I could have quite happily stayed for another couple if I didn't have to get to the venue (plus my mrs was with me and she tells me I'm not very subtle when looking at other women).
Overall I thought it was a good show there were something's I liked and a couple of things I wasn't so keen on.
I wasn't quite sure of the target audience that 4fw is promoting to? It seems a like that it is mainly families with just a little bit of the Internet thrown in. It makes sense to target the family audience as being next to a school, obviously the local promotion is going to target this crowd. This is not a criticism, I just felt a lot of things weren't aimed at me last night.
I think some of the match ordering was a bit out last night. The idea of having a 10 man ladder match (which I enjoyed) followed by jonny kid vs mad dog in a word of sport style match just didn't work. I understand you might have wanted to bring the crowd down ready for the main event but it was way too much and to be honest it was not a good match!
Main event was great, much better then I was expecting! Was very impressed by the match that both finlay and JD put on!
So it was a good night overall. I probably wouldn't go back anytime too soon, just because it was more of a family show but I think 4fw looks like a really good promotion and I'm sure they will do great things in the future!
