I already have Bret and Anvil in the same shot and have multiple shots with Bret, Anvil, and Jimmy so I have no interest in a Hart Foundation group shot. But wow on the promoters not try to cash in for that group shot :smh:

I'm going to guess it'll happen. It would be silly not to.

They once had Hogan, Hall, and Nash in the same building and that didn't happen.

That's just silly. They sort of don't seem to be big on doing HUGE group photo ops or even dual photo ops unless a vendor is bringing in a tag team or group. But I'm still willing to be the Hart Foundation happens.

$100 for a Bret Hart VIP is not bad deal but I'm glad that I have finished up with him. I also got the dual photo op with him and The Anvil when they were at the Big Event in November of 2015.

This is where promoters just shoot themselves in the foot - if they offered those group ops, everybody involved would have ended up making more money than they otherwise would, but because the promoters are too dumb/lazy/carny to figure out a fair way to split the money, they all settle for less, and money is left on the table. Stupid.

It's too much to ask. They'd need to setup a pre-arranged photo session. There's no space for that, it's too hectic, and there's no PA system.

If the setup and/or venue prevents people from doing things that would clearly make the show a lot more money, it's a bad setup that needs to be fixed. If shows that are both much smaller and much bigger than them can figure out how to do group ops, there's no excuse why BE can't figure out something when demand warrants it. I can see not wanting the headache if it's a niche group op that would have limited appeal, but when the ops would make significant $$$$ for everybody, the reasoning that it would be "too hectic" to make that money seems silly.

Agreed.

Sure there might be hurdles. But it's business. Business has hurdles. You work them out.

I can also see this perspective. I guess you have to pick and chose what you want your convention to be, you know? Legends of the Ring has a very convenient setup because the Crowne Plaza Hotel has a decent size vendor room, the Superticket room (they've used two different rooms), another decent size room (where Sting was), and ANOTHER space where they used for photo ops like the Hardy Boyz and Four Horsemen. They have the rooms to do a bunch of different things.

Big Event, your space is VERY limited. It's going to be interesting to see the setup this year with the 2nd floor now in play.
