MOVE OVER COMIC-CON, WWE IS PREPPING ‘WWE THE CONVENTION’
The two chambers of Congress at the moment are looking at very different paths for funding transportation. The House path though stopping short of cutting all funding by a third as proposed in the past slashes passenger rail funding by $400 million, eliminates money for the innovative TIGER grants, and reduces the funding communities depend on for new transit projects. Meanwhile, a Senate committee has drafted a budget that increases funding for new transit construction, keeps and expands TIGER, provides support for Amtrak and passenger rail improvements, and funds a new grant program to jumpstart progress on repairing critical bridges.

House officials, in passing their version, defended the cuts.

There is no timetable for the first event to be held yet, as the company is still formulating plans and just began reaching out to fans via surveys to gauge interest on different elements in order to help the company begin to build a better gathering. The early indications are that the four day event, running from Thursday to Sunday would be far more like a major comic book convention than the current AXXESS events, with specific programming, including panels with WWE writers, executives, legends and current talents. The gathering would also conceivably feature autograph and photo sessions, interactive contests and activities with other fans, PPV and other event watching parties in theaters, live bouts from WWE NXT, a vendor’s area with different exhibitors displaying and selling items, a WWE memorabilia display, a fan collector zone to display your own collection, a WWE videogame lounge and more. The early plans are to have a VIP ticket in the $100-$150 area as well as a general admission ticket. The convention ticket would be separate from the the PPV ticket.
