        Cos that's some funky logic that would lead you call Lesnar the biggest PPV draw in the world based on that. GSP (among others) was on the 'undercard' and regularly accounts for an extra half million buys when he fights. Plus you had Bisping v Henderson coming off their stint on TUF.

        Pacquiao and Mayweather kick Brock's ass a bit if you're talking about what individual has the biggest impact on PPV rates.


      I just wanted to phrase it to make a cute reference to Mayweather (WM24) but yeah, Pacquiao would be ahead of him too.
    Oh. The Mayweather/WM24 reference went straight over my head. Now that you've explained it, it *is* very cute. But hey, if you have to explain it then, well, there's every chance your audience is an idiot. Damn.


I'm glad you brought up Pacquiao because I always assumed (based on nothing and not caring) during their non-fight build-up that Mayweather was bigger box office than him, but it looks like Pacquiao has done demonstrably better than him since then.

      Do you really need a draft when you have the same WWE Commissioner - sorry, general manager - overseeing both shows?


    No, we don't. Yet, I saw one dirt sheet report saying Vince is thinking about moving Cena to Smackdown. Could be BS, but the draft is starting to become an annual thing even though, so I could see them trying to do it. Even though it has not been necessary for a long time.


Hahaha I love this. Cena can be listed on the website's Smackdown roster but still be the main event of Raw every week.

If and when Lord Tensai takes on the Funkasaurus, they should wrestle on Saturday mornings around 11am in syndication.

    Maybe I've missed something here, but since when in WWE storyline has the WWE been refered to as the bad guy for marketing a kid friendly wrestler? Seems to fantasy booking for me.



During the Summer of Punk, one of his main points was that Cena got all the merch and spotlight because he was the company's chosen one, not because he was the best wrestler. They aren't the bad guy for pushing a kid friendly wrestler, they are the "bad" guy for pushing someone to fit their marketing image rather than who the fans want or who is the most talented.

WWE can dig this commercial out from last year and pretty much use it again:

To be fair, this was a man who repeatedly claimed that fans were "literally hanging from the rafters."

So THAT'S where he gets it from! And probably why it annoys me so much, too.

I was just thinking about this, and when I saw Tensai I was really hoping this is the feud they're going for.

I actually really enjoyed this RAW, but I hope they have a reason for putting down Ryder when he's obv. so over? :/

I'll always remember Taker's entrance from that show, with the pyro and Limp Bizkit's Rollin'. It's one of the best big-time entrances in recent memory. Not sure that it's worth buying it just for that, however.
