The WWE and Vince McMahon have planned a brand new marketing campaign to get back the fans that left and to bring the new ones in. It's called "Escape The Rules." It will run over the next four months and its costing the WWE about $2 million dollars. What it's going to do is take those widely accepted ideas such as, not taking candy from strangers, or looking before you jump, and RAW will turn those ideas all around. The point is of escaping the rules. It is hard to explain, put it that way.

I took this off www.wrestlingheadlines.com who took it off of Slam. Hmm, bring back the fans that left, and bring in new ones... taking candy from strangers and looking before you jump. What the hell?

More money gone down the toilet for the WWE.

You Samoans are all the same. You have no faith in the essential decency of the white man's culture.

Eh, it could work. It reminds me of the WWE's Super Bowl Commercial a couple of years ago: "Get it?"

I heard it was 4 million for the RAW campain and 2 million for the Smackdown one. Who's got there figures off? I heard the 4 Million from Wrestling-Online.com newsletter as posted below.

RAW MEDIA CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED

- Today WWE launched a new campaign for their flagship show Monday Night RAW on Spike TV. This is a marketing campaign which along with the Smackdown! one totals up to $4 million in expenses and is leading up to WrestleMania XX. The campaign is titled 'Escape the Rules'. Ads will
appear on Entertainment Weekly, Sports Illustrated, DC Comics, Mad Magazine, AOL's online services, Cartoon Network's 'Adult Swim' and other shows on TNT and TBS. The push for RAW will also be heard on radio spots, seen in outdoor ads etc.

It's $4 million total, split between RAW and Smackdown for about $2 million each.

Exactly my thoughts when reading it.

Hey, I'd give it a shot. At least they're TRYING to reach out to a wider fanbase.

I'm pretty sure that something can be said about the irony of this campaign seeming to target AOL-TW properties almost exclusively, but I'm not sure what it is.....

That's not irony...that's misdirection. They want you to think they're doing this because they WANT to, as opposed to they're doing this because it was part of the deal to buy WCW that they purchase advertising on TWX entities so they HAVE to.

Mad Magazine? People are still reading that, eh. I don't know maybe they are targeting the wrong audience. Why not spread some of the money around on ESPN, Fox Sports or some NFL games?

If you watch his entrance, he seems to actually pull his knees up to give the illusion of more "air". However...I'd have to agree.
