Not just WWE, but any wrestling Pay-Per-View. And which do you always order (if any)?

I havn't ordered a Pay Per view in well over 6 years (mostly due to lack of interest and the expense) but I know I'm in the minority.

I've settled into a Wrestlemania-only situation. (Although I did find means of watching the Rumble last night.)

UFC, on the other hand, I basically order every one unless I'm busy.

If I can substitute UFC PPVs, then it's probably about $100 per year, split halfway between gatherings with friends and bar cover charges.

I usually buy Mania and Summerslam for WWE. Then probably 3 to 4 TNA PPVs if nothing is on TV as well as Bounood for Glory and Lockdown. So, I probably spend $150 with friends bitching in. I am off the hook this year so Mania as a friend is hosting it, so that will save me about $20 after everyone pitches in. Mania is getting insanely expensive for what looks to be a normal card with an extra half hour.

I am close to this with UFC as well. There is a bar I usually go to for UFC shows, but occassionally I have seen it at a theater or at a friend's house. So a bit over 100 for me.

As for wrestling, I never order PPVs by myself. I used to go to one guy's house for the WWE shows, but he has since stopped getting them and now only gets a few TNA shows (no, his name isn't Lotjx). So basically it boils down to going to a different friend's house for Rumble and Mania, and that's pretty much it. I guess that would be around 40-70 dollars or so spent on wrestling, factoring an occassional TNA show.

I will get together with friends in another city to order the Rumble and Wrestlemania. Mania's Mania and we have a Rumble pool for cash moneys.

When I lived there, we got almost every show for a long time, but interest was falling before I moved away and it's only gotten worse since then.

I don't have any friends here who really care about wrestling and the PPVs are too expensive for me by myself. I have tracked down the occasional stream, but only for shows that I don't care about possibly missing. I always have the option of watching them at the movie theatre but I think I only bothered with that once last year.

I don't think I've ordered a TNA show since the first Joe/Angle match.

Meanwhile, I get together with a friend here for UFC shows on a fairly regular basis. We don't catch all of them, but a fair number. And I have bought a couple on my own when friends weren't around and I reeeeeeally wanted to see the show (mostly Brock fights).

I don't buy PPVs anymore. There's a local sports bar that gets them all, but I usually just go for the Rumble, WM, and sometimes Summerslam.

Used to be just Rumbles and Wrestlemanias. After this past weekend, it looks like just Wrestlemanias now.

These days, Wrestlemania in HD and probably one other show with a friend of mine, determined at random. So roughly $100. I don't order movies or anything else. Cable's plenty 'spensive.

WrestleMania-only. But I usually go to a sports bar, or go to a friend's house and pay for half of it (like I did last year).

If the sports bar in question is relatively convenient to get to, I'll sometimes drop in for a SummerSlam.

Nothin' since I gave up on TNA. This was also the first time in many years that I skipped the Rumble.

I've got to go with quality, practical education for everyone. At least to the high school level, preferably at a minimum of college. If that happens, a lot of other problems can fall into line and be much less of an issue.
