This event’s gate will go to the Jacksonville Victim Assistance Advisory Council which helps provide assistance to victims of crime and their families.
Blake’s Take: I’m not sure how this news will go down over here in the UK. To actually find out we can watch the show live is brilliant news. But to then be told that we have to pay for a PPV that is being shown for free in the United States is gonna stick in our collective craw. Let’s see what the numbers say a few weeks after both these events.
