I can't help but notice that some of the "it wasn't so bad!" folks have UK flags and perhaps watched it for nothing/cost of subscription on SKY as opposed to being asked for $45 or $55 for the privilege of seeing ... that.

It's true, I did go see it in a bar with some of my friends, which just makes it better overall, really. If I had paid real money and expected something resembling a decisive finish in the main event, I'd feel pretty ripped off.

Anybody else getting the notion that maybe WWE holds 3 PPVS within 9 weeks because they know buyrates will be down anyway due to NFL programming and they're just milking the crowd that will buy every WWE PPV anyway?

I mean, last night was a mediocre sounding PPV that was going head to head with a Sunday Night Rout on NBC. Hot PPV or no, they were still going head to head with Sunday Night Football. Night of Champions was also going head to head with Week 2, which for all accounts and purposes was touted as a big game (San Fransisco/Seattle). Hell in a Cell will be going head to head with Packers/Vikings, and judging by our W banner of the day, this too would be a conflict for some fans.

Basically put, the steakhouse is offering a 6 oz. cut as it's special when it's management knows the competition is offering King's Cut Prime Rib at a cheaper price.

Also, no better way to get someone over than by pointing out what a huge loser he is. This company just excels at that!

FWIW, his contract was always a short term deal. It was to expire after this PPV, WWE really wanted him to re-sign, RVD didn't seem to want to, and WWE was supposedly upset about it.

Agreed. Going to a place with fantastic bar food has mellowed me on this PPV to the point that I was not disappointed to have invested three hours in it. I thought the main event prior to the Sportz Entertainment Finish (which I called and was one of the precious few predictions I got right) was a decent match even though I have no real interest in watching Orton and Bryan go at it again. We only really paid attention to the main event, the Shield match, the Punk match, Cesaro's Giant Swing, and Bray's Spider Crawl. There did seem to be an awful lot of filler. Although I had a markout moment when I saw Tensai in his corporate getup as part of the panel.

In short, I can see how you would be justified to hate this PPV if you shelled out $45 or $55 for it.

Yeah, it was pretty odd to see Maven go from Heat guy to beating a member of Evolution & hanging out w/ Benoit & Jericho overnight.
