At the end of April I broke my live wrestling virginity with a trip to London's O2 Arena for the taping of WWE's Smackdown. My brother, who came along too, had been to a few live events before but for me, despite years of watching wrestling on TV, this was my first! It was great fan but instead of a review of the night here's the five things I learned from my first live event.
The last time England played in a tournament in Europe, some 100,000 supporters travelled to the World Cup in Germany to watch Sven Goran Eriksson's 'golden generation' take on the world. But only a minority had tickets. Fast forward six years to Euro 2012, and the picture couldn't be more different.
