LAW Oct. 22 Update - WrestleMania Tickets Priced Up to $2000
John Pollock / October 22, 2012 - 4:47pm
**Sunday night’s edition of The LAW is up on the site at http://fightnetwork.com/news/34257:oct.-21-edition-of-the-law-w-michael-elgin/ featuring Dan “The Mouth” Lovranski and Jason Agnew discussing the booking for next weekend’s CM Punk Vs Ryback match at the Hell in a Cell event along with the announcement of Jon Jones Vs Chael Sonnen. Also on the show Michael Elgin stops by along with Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and your phone calls. You can also grab the show on the free Stitcher app and on iTunes by subscribing to Live Audio Wrestling.
**Tonight the Raw tapings are in East Rutherford, New Jersey at the iZod Center for the final show before this Sunday’s Hell in a Cell show. Tonight they are scheduled to have the finals of the tag tournament with Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow Vs Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara, which is dependent on the status of Mysterio, who had the weekend off to recover from a nasty stomach virus that sidelined him last week.
**Tonight Raw faces a ton of competition with the Detroit Lions taking on the Chicago Bears in the Monday night game, Game 7 of the NLCS between the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants along with the final Presidential debate. Considering all of this programming on tonight I really hope we can avoid the panic tomorrow because every indication suggests the number for Raw is going to be significantly hurt tonight.
**Michael Cole and Jim Ross are scheduled for commentary tonight with Josh Mathews and JBL handling Smackdown tomorrow night at the tapings.
**We will be back with Review-A-Raw later tonight with Wai Ting and I chatting tonight’s show and taking your feedback from The LAW Message Board. The show will be posted late tonight on the site and on iTunes.
**The WWE sent out a press release today officially announcing that tickets for WrestleMania 29 go on sale Saturday November 10th at 10am EST. Ticket prices range from $35-$850. They are also offering a limited amount of Gold Circle packages for the first four rows ringside where ticket holders will receive a VIP stadium entrance and a commemorative chair to take home for $2,000 per ticket. WrestleMania 29 takes place Sunday April 7th from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
**Randy Orton announced today that he has wrapped filming for “12 Rounds: Reloaded” that he has been shooting for the past month.
**TNA has announced they will be holding double tapings in both Manchester and London, England on their European tour next January. The tapings will cover the entire month of Impact tapings for February.
**Bret Hart confirmed on Twitter that the WWE is working on another DVD for Hart focusing on rare and unreleased matches from his career including matches from Stampede Wrestling that Hart has held onto. The release date will not be until the new year.
**Jim Ross discusses the Mid-South tape library that the WWE has acquired with over 1,200 hours in the library. I really hope they make a lot of this available because it features some of the best weekly television ever produced.
**Ring of Honor has announced a date for January 18th in Dearborn, Michigan at The Ford Community & Performing Arts Center.
**Chris Jericho is targeting February of 2014 for the release of his third autobiography that starts off with his November 2007 return to the WWE and will detail that incredible heel run including his feud with Shawn Michaels in 2008.

LAW MMA UPDATE
**Dave Meltzer reports at MMAFighting.com that early estimates for UFC 153 headlined by Anderson Silva Vs Stephan Bonnar are in the 340,000 – 410,000 range.
**The UFC continues to add to the big year-end card with UFC 155 on December 29th in Las Vegas and have added the following fights:
*Ricardo Lamas Vs Erik Koch – this will almost definitely lead to the next contender at 145 providing the timing works out with Edgar scheduled to fight for the title next against champion Jose Aldo
*Brad Pickett Vs Eddie Wineland
*Byron Bloodworth Vs Erik Perez
**Below is my rant from this past week’s edition of The MMA Report discussing the Jon Jones Vs Chael Sonnen fight announcement and a follow up tweet from Dan Henderson:
**Coming off of this past Friday’s Bellator 77 card the following semi-final bouts have been made in the lightweight tournament set for Bellator 81 on November 16th in Kingston, Rhode Island:
*Rich Clementi Vs Marcin Held

**T.J. Dillashaw and Mike Easton have verbally agreed to fight on the undercard of the UFC on FOX 5 card on December 8th in Seattle, Washington. That is a really good fight at 135-pounds.
