They deserve it. Everything about that angle and build to that PPV blew.

The question is do they listen? Buyrates mean more than Tweets don't they?

They really need to can a few of these PPVs, or at least lower their prices. I'm not paying what they're expecting for their B shows.

If anything, I hope it leads to more talk of the Golden Goose of Cena being out of eggs or HHH doesn't have the value that WWE thinks or that Hunter thinks he has. That angle was just terrible, it should have been Punk getting his win back or destroying Nash. At least they righted the wrong at Survivor Series, but the Raw number this week is probably not encouraging.

I pretty sure CM Punk will get blamed for this.

The past season has been saturated with PPV's that hotshotted strange blowoffs rather than allowing certain things to cook. I don't know that diminishing the amount of PPVs would be healthy, but there's no reason whatsoever to have two PPVs two weeks apart. I'm starting to actually think they should put more faith in the brand split; it is a falsified competition, for sure, but it allows you to have the same amount of PPVs with more buildup towards them. Mark Henry could have kept pace with his story and reign, which I think is the most interesting thing on WWE TV, with spot title defenses here and there on cable, with a proper buildup of the CM Punk storyline. I dunno.

Also, reading the link, I agree with the sentiment that having complete gimmick match PPVs does diminish the effect of the said gimmick matches, but if it's the only time a year you see them I understand why they do it to garner buyrates.

Heh. How would they do that? Just go public with what they know about how the backstage operates. Like that reviewer said, wrestlers need a union, and the only way that could happen is if someone big stood up and made things public.
