Almost every member of the WWE Universe (myself included) have attended Monday Night RAW, Friday Night SmackDown, pay-per-view, and WWE house shows in their lifetime. However, if you want to rub shoulders with your favorite WWE Superstar or Diva, then your best bet is attending a WWE house show.
WWE house shows are WWE events which are not televised on TV (similar to a dark match) which are used to enhance current storylines as well as up-and-coming NXT talent who are on the verge of getting promoted to the main roster.
Which brings me to my WWE house show experience. I live in a small town in Idaho that doesn't have a big arena (other than the local college gym), but the closest arena near my hometown is the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena in Spokane, Washington (which hosts the Spokane Shock Arena Football League team). At first, I thought about attending the Slammys edition of RAW at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington but I couldn't find the pre-sale code, and so I settled for the December 8th, 2013 WWE house show in Spokane instead. I got the most expensive seats (which was of course the front-row ringside area).
Many top WWE Superstars and Divas (including John Cena) were there. The crowd consists of diehard WWE fans as well as plenty of little kids. There were several Daniel Bryan fans (even though Bryan was at the WWE house show in Yakima, Washington) who also attended the show.
It was always my dream to meet my favorite WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes and my dream finally came true after he and Goldust defeated Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. After the match, I congratulated Cody and he came ringside to hold my hand for a bit. It was the ultimate fan's dream!
And so, sometime if you get a chance to attend a WWE house show, who knows. Maybe, you'll get a chance to meet your favorite WWE Superstar or Diva like I did!
