        Few thoughts...

        Huge crowd turnout for FCW's debut show. Totally unexpected. The lower section was completely full and the balcony section was half full. As we were riding down the 10 East, we saw searchlights in the sky, and I jokingly said, "Heh, I bet you the searchlights are for FCW!" And low and behold, what do I see outside the Grand Olympic Auditorium? Not only do a see searchlights, but I see long ass lines wrapping around the GOA. Very nuts! Mascara vendors all over the place. And what better way to complement the lucha swag than LA hot dog vendors! Bacon wrapped death dogs are one of the biggest draws for me to come to LA. Someone needs to make a franchise out of this! The sound of "hotdoghotdoghotdoghotdoghotdoghotdog" as I walk to the GOA is a soothing sound.

        The Poubelle Twins (!!!) w/ LVV promoter Liz Flame and Rocky Romero were in attendance.

        The dark match was very messy. A lot of the participants seemed very confused, as was I. Nikki came out with Carnage and Lonestar and got in all her offense, which consists of your standard US Woman's babyface spots (queceadora bulldog, ranas, etc.) The FMLL guys were not good. The luchadore with the Darth Maul mask didn't want to cooperate with anyone. The other lucha guy (I think it may have been Shamu... not sure) literally dropped this one dude right on his head with a legit ganso bomb, which was supposed to be some type of rana. Nobody wanted to bump for anyone in that match. I think "LTP" aka Mini Shelton Benjamin and Diablo could have had a better match with "The Young Bucks" aka the newest and last set of Gallineros from Revolution Pro. Mini Shelton and Diablo show potential.

        Ruckus/Human Tornado/Phoenix Star was an out of control spotfest. Probably one of the best matches of the night, with nutty spots left and right from all competitors.

        And it is really amazing to see Hijo Del Santo flying all over the ring at his age. He moves so quick for a ring veteran. And as always, it was obvious he was the main draw for this show, as the crowd was going nuts for Santo. Santo unmasked Super Parka once again, as SP disrespects the initial instance where Santo unmasked him in Tijuana by continuing to wear the mask. At one point though, SP had Santo's mask half way off, revealing the back of his head exposing his hair. That was as close as it was to coming off though, as Santo rallied back to fend off the Rudos, with the help of Mascara Sagrada. Santo =

          2000, thats insane.

          Props to FCW for having a great debut show. It would be nice to have a great local powerhouse promotion around here as SoCal definitely deserves some attention.

          Any word on their next show or anything like that? I might have to check out one of these shows someday.

            I think the estimate of 2,000 fans is a bit low. As Scrub stated the entire lower section was full and from my seat it appeared as though there were quite a few fans in the upper level as well. While I was standing in line with a buddy of mine who is a SoCal promoter he said that 3,500 tickets had already been sold and there was still a long line of people waiting to buy tickets. I suppose we will have to wait until the official attendance is released by FCW. Overall it was a good show although I think the predominantly Latino crowd (who no doubt came out to see El Hijo del Santo) was somewhat turned off by some of the hardcore stuff that happened just before intermission. I heard a lot of boos and someone in my section yelled out "No page 10 dolares para estas pendejadas" - which loosely translated means "I didn't pay $10 bucks for this foolishness".

              Perhaps a little more than 2000. But don't get it twisted. It was obvious that this was a lucha crowd with Santo being the obvious draw. For those who were around and remember, Azteca drew crazy numbers just like FCW did tonight, strictly because it was a lucha crowd, and the promotion of the show (newspapers and radio ads) was on point. If you advertise, they will come.

                I heard that too. Alotta fans in my section were turned off by the undercard sans the three way spotfest. The fans in attendance wanted lucha. I heard some "aburrido" cat calls y "pinche _________" during anything that wasn't lucha. They were nice though, and popped for the nicer looking stuff in the ring and the high risk dives to the floor. The uninspired brawling, stalling, and and hardcore got bad reactions from the crowd, mainly the people in the balcony.

                  Scrub,
                  You are definitely right. The fans wanted lucha. When I got in line a little before 7, everyone around me was speaking Spanish and I knew they were here for one reason and one reason only, they wanted to see a lucha show. It was nice to hear the cheers and claps for some of the non lucha guys. I thought Vic Grimes got over with the fans quite well with some of his off the top rope moves.

                  A few notes to add to the quick results above. After the six man lucha match between Los Hermanos Dinamitas and La Familia de Tijuana, Chucho Reyes aka Mascara Ano 2000 issued a challenge for a hair vs hair match. Not sure if anything will come of it, since Misterio Sr. turned him down. Also after Kaos and Mongol defeated The Young Bucks, they issued a challenge to any lucha guys in the back. Damian and Halloween came out to answer the call, but not much more than words were exchanged. Hopefully this will lead to a match between the Santino Brothers and Mexico's Most Wanted at the next show. It's always nice when promotions have storylines that we can follow from show to show.

                    Like Daniel said, along with Grimes, I also felt the crowd was very much into Angel and his gimmick.

                        Honestly, the 2000 fan approximation is probably VERY VERY low. There was more like 10,000 fans. The venue was almost sold out and I think it holds like 12,000 people for boxing. Anyway, if anyone knows the capacity for a boxing event just multiply that number by about .85 (85%) to get a good approximation of the attendance that night. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

                        I never ever insult wrestlers because I am just a fan who does not really know what it is like being in the ring. I have way too much respect for what these men do. I love and thank these men for putting their lives on the line for little pay just to entertain people like me. Wrestlers are the toughest and among the greatest atheletes in the world. That said, I have to really agree with the above quote. That luchador with the red really sucked. He did not want to cooperate with anyone. He did not sell any moves at all and pretended like nothing hurt him. Every time he was in the ring he kept messing things up. When he was supposed to fall to the ground he would roll on the ground in slow motion making the move look rediculous. he dropped that little black kid on his head potentially ending his life because he did not want to cooperate with the huricanrana. That was unprofessonal and disgusting. That man does not belong in a ring if his stubborness is going to put peoples lives in jeopardy. Yes, I never insult wrestlers and their performances but that guy should never step foot in the ring if he is going to act like that.

                        Surprisingly, that was a great card overall.

                          That was the highlight of my evening.In addition, the stage, lights and sound were fantastic. The crowd was fired up at the beginning, then I think the dark match killed it. I don't think the crowd hit the opening volume 'til the main event. I was happy for all the guys who don't normally get to work in front of such a big crowd. I do agree with the 3,500 figure, maybe even 4,000. As far as I know, the compacity is 5,500, but I heard that about 20 years ago. Why was Cyanide's dad, or whoever he is, throwing money around at the start of the show? There was quite a few people outside under the freeway bridge who could have used that money. Oh yeah, the wrestling.
                          I only liked the three way with Tornado, Phoenix Star, and Ruckus. I like lucha sometimes, but it just didn't work for me this evening. Is it me, or did most of the matches spend too much time working the crowd for pops until the actual wrestling started? Sorry, but it got on my nerves.
                          Now that I know what to expect at a show like this, would I go again? Sure, I would. I like the place, the crowd(mi raza, and the gringos I sat with), and of course, hotdoghotdoghotdoghotdoghotdog !(with everything !)
                          As a goofy little side note, when I was in the john during the Santinos match, the crowd popped for something, and a little kid started crying to his father because he thought he was missing Santo. (Awwwwwww)

                            The attendance figure is driving me crazy so I looked it up on www.grandoly.com It says that the upper level has 3,949 seats and for the ring setup the lower level has 3,081 seats. So that adds up to 7,030 seats.

                              Congrats to everyone at FCW. I for one didn't believe that a mixed card, lucha libre and non-lucha libre talent, would draw. However, once showtime came around, the place had a very good crowd. I heard the place now holds 7,500, so my guess would be around 3,500 to 4,000 in attendence?
                              That said, I think it was clear that it was a lucha crowd. With the exception of the usual Cyanide family/fans, and the "Supreme" chants, I thought the crowd but kinda dead for the non-lucha matches. Not that the matches weren't worthy of applause, just that a lucha libre crowd.... wants to see lucha libre.
                              I thought the show ran a bit too long. By the semi-main match the crowd was just wanting to see Santo! Psicossis and Messiah had a cool match with the crowd getting back into the show. By the time Santo walked out, I think the crowd had gotten its' second wind because that place went nuts. I thought it was a nice way to end the show, with a crowd just as loud at the end as it was at the start of the show.
                              Big props to all the FCW crew for the balls to put a show at the GOA. Over the years I've seen many feds put on their last show at the GOA. I hope FCW will change that trend. They had a good product last night that with a little tunning (length of show, more lucha talent, etc) I think will continue to draw. Congrats FCW!!
