WWE cancels half the India tour due to low ticket sales

That Jinder experiment sure paid off.

Quote:

WWE and Sony Pictures Networks India today announced that WWE Live in India at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium will now feature one “Supershow” on Saturday, December 9, including the return of WWE Superstar Triple H™ vs. “The Modern-Day Maharaja”, Jinder Mahal™, in the main event.


Tickets are still available at https://in.bookmyshow.com/sports/wwe...india-tickets/


To meet the requests of WWE fans in India, and deliver the biggest main event in the country’s history, WWE is combining two nights of family-friendly action into a one-night only, exclusive Supershow. Fans may exchange WWE Live tickets purchased for Friday, December 8, for Saturday’s WWE Supershow, or receive a full refund by contacting BookMyShow customer service at 022 6144 5050 or helpdesk@bookmyshow.com.”


Speculation on Wrestling Observer board is that ticket prices are way too high for the market + Jinder isn't interesting to Indian fans.

Thai is great news on the face of it.

Hopefully it forces them to fix their shitty product instead of just coasting on money from foreign markets.

Saw this on the wrestling observer board:

Cheapest tickets are about 26 dollars and the most expensive are 535 dollars.

Which by India standards is fucking insane considering tickets for cricket matches run for less than a dollar.

I think Jinder vs Cena will still happen at WM tbh
Jinder vs Roman seems like a program tailor-made for next year's RAW after the next roster draft...

I could even see Roman vs Jinder headline SummerSlam

I don't get why WWE thinks they'll make money by touring the turd world. They poo in the streets in India. It's like Mexico but with curry instead of tacos.

The arena the tour is booked in seats 14,000. So really, they gave you Jinder for six months in hopes of selling out a 14,000 seat arena.

Kind of amazing how much they bungled recent attempts at trying to expand in the Indian market.

The worst being they made no real effort to build Jinder into a good or decent champ and they dragged their feet on doing this tour until recently. Once Jinder lost the belt, pretty much got rid of a big reason to even have a tour based on the way they were building things.

I don't think that's the case. India is a vast culture that has spread out across the world. There are people who identify as "Indian" that have never been to India. It's just that they aren't fucking dumb and won't simply be pandered to by obtuse nationalism. If the Mahal experiment was working, you'd have seen upward trends in domestic business in the United States and Canada.

Each state and territory in India is widely different from the last. Jinder Mahal is Punjabi Sikh. That's a minority in India. There are extremists who would not consider him Indian even if he were born there because he is not Hindu. Beyond that, for such a large population they actually have a very small sample of sporting and entertainment stars. When it comes to Bollywood, for example, a lot of the heavy lifting is done by very familiar faces and personalities. They are also very attractive, talented, lively and energetic people. Jinder Mahal is...well, he looks very serious and acts very dull.

This was just a bad decision. Jinder Mahal is not a very good professional wrestler. You can't just say "He's Indian" and expect people to suddenly jump into his camp. He was a jobber who showed nothing to indicate he shouldn't be. This was shameless and gross, and they've finally learnt their fucking lesson -- don't be a fucking racist and think that brown people are dumb enough to fall for your shit.

Wouldn't surprise me if India still doesn't sell out, because Triple H isn't a fucking draw either.

So a racist Canadian heel in a turban isn't a huge draw in India? Shocking.

I also have no clue why they organized a tour for the Raw brand with Jinder on it, as opposed to the show with Jinder on it. I don't think it'd make a difference, don't get me wrong, but it's hard to tell if they are even trying.

A lot of people compare Jinder's title run to JBL's and it feels off base. JBL wasn't booked like a complete jobber before his singles run. He was part of a very successful tag team and during his singles stints before JBL he was portrayed as a badass could take the fight to anybody.

It felt jarring when Bradshaw showed up one random SmackDown under a completely new gimmick. In the moment it seemed ridiculous. But it was a billion times more believable than Jinder fucking Mahal suddenly being WWE Champion.

Oh, agreed. JBL was jarring, as was the transformation from Bradshaw to JBL, and it's a perfect example of how far the WWE have gradually fallen piece by piece over the years. This is what I mean when I say that people in the bubble don't see it, and active fans have been conditioned to take this shit and ask for me.

When JBL became champion, ratings and PPV buys tanked. There's no way to spin it -- JBL was a fucking awful champion, despite how much Gertner promos otherwise. The transformation was jarring and weird, and had a noticeable affect on the company. But when you get to Jinder Mahal, they don't even change his gimmick. They just suddenly tell you that he's super-charged and ready to be the best fighter in the world. And nothing really changes. Sure, things continue to tick down, but there is no sudden drop. That's because the damage has already been done. The people left are the people left. The good news is that the WWE probably knows where their bottom is now.
