Cant see how a wrestling convention is financially viable.....theres a reason companies that have done them in the past arent around anymore....
If you are talking about the one i think you are talking about that was a shambolic organised event. They appeared to announce people were coming before it was confirmed. The idea being people would rush to buy tickets and then they would have the money to go get the person.
Because so many wrestling fans have been ripped off in the past by supposed conventions and general wrestling shows, when anything is announced immediately scepticism kicks in and an overwhelming onslaught of negativity heads it's way.
I think a convention could work but it may have to be different to the usual conventions. During the day it's business as usual, but in the evening a wrestling show takes place.
If this format was offered, it may be of interest to some doubters. If ME wanted to do something like that they would be be best advised to work with an UK wrestling promotion like IPW:UK that is recognised as one of the top ones in the UK. They could then handle the evening wrestling shows, which they know about and leave ME to cover everything else.
IF this format was used some brought in younger talent would be advisable becuase a lot of the older stars just can't cut it like they did. Some can of course, but lots can't and what they do is embarassing to watch.
