Roger Goodell isn't wrong when he says that the UK is hungry for more NFL games. The speed in which tickets sell out every year shows you that we are willing to pay up to watch American football here. But do we just want to see the game or can we come round to supporting a side, week in, week out?

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.
