I did it for the first time at WM22 at a sportsbar, there were about 7 of us in our group. It cost $10 to get in, and my meal (chicken strips, fries, soda) was about $10 I think. I had an awesome time, well worth my $20. I need to call them to see if they'll show ONS2, but I'm too lazy.
Well, at least 90% of these responses prove to me why the Post-PPV threads on here are down so much from the past few years (including what may be the lowest number of responses to a WWE PPV ever- 11 for Judgement Day). It seems that none of you are ordering them at home.
I'm with you all. I would like to watch them, but I don't have the funds to order them every month. I don't even have any sports bars near me that are showing the PPVs (at least I don't think so). I usually just buy the big 4 with friends (RR, WM, SS and SS) like some of you said. Actually ONS was the first PPV I've ordered at my house, and ONS 2 might be the second.

I don't vouch for other people's viewing habits, but watching pay-per-views has always been a communal experience for me. Watching ppvs alone for me was never fun because there's no one else to comment on the action/absurdity with and the $35 cost hurt too much to bear alone.
But our original group of watchers has dwindled from five to seven people in late 2000 to maybe three or four a few years later to strictly my friend and me now. So it's a matter of paying $20 each, but also, our interest in the product isn't as high, so we've cut back to just the major ones.
Even then, $20 for anything outside of SummerSlam, Royal Rumble and Mania seems like a stretch. *Maybe* the ECW one....
If Spike TV makes a real commitment to a Monday night show -- which means live weekly broadcasts, extra money & resources, plus full support from Viacom -- I think it's an incredibly smart move. The McMahons are distracted.
