Smallman said view of ring is poor from balcony after about one row, that's why they don't want to open it further for Birmingham

Can confirm. We sat in the front row right in the middle to do commentary, and could only just see the nearest apron. Further back you can only see the stage, which makes sense for normal gigs! But it doesn't work for wrestling. All the seating in the balcony is fixed fold down seats.

I guess this Freedom's Road thing is a play on the JFK quote: "The best road to progress is freedom's road". So perhaps a developmental type show for guys to get experience and get ready for the main shows. Tickets for the second night are more expensive, so maybe its a two-night tournament where the winner gets a spot on their main roster?

No, it's £9 each night. 

 

You'll all see tomorrow! Don't overthink it.

If no one else is publishing/airing the same interview then technically it's exclusive.

Of course it is, but unless it's a pre-done interview being shopped around it's a redundant term that is never actually used by any competent person.

Fair play to them for at least trying with this - seen it pop up in a few places on social media now and my mate who is a journo said he read an e-mail yesterday from them offering an exclusive with anyone on the card to try and get some media hype.

 

They're offering interviews to everyone, they're hardly exclusive. Smacks of the worrying hyperbole surrounding this...

Why was Rampage released from WWE developmental? I didn't know who he was at the time, but after seeing (and being highly impressed) him during the second series of TNA Boot Camp, I can't believe they didn't want to keep him there. Was it his decision at all?

Yeah he asked for his release.
