No idea. If that's true, then it obviously should've been taken as a positive and built upon. Even though the match had a good build up throughout the show, that would've been a good sign. I can't remember if a cruiser title match ever main evented a Nitro or Thunder.

Spiff - your question hinges on what we're going to say "draw" means. Higher ratings? (I don't know where to get quarter hour break downs if they're not posted on a wrestling site.) T-shirt sales? Signs in the crowd?



It's just you against the group mind.

Combination of TV ratings, PPV buys, house show attendance, merch. sales, crowd response (some weighted more than others - Hogan got great crowd responses, but his last title reign bombed).

I'm not sure where to get ratings break-downs either, but I remember seeing the news sites' reports about the Rey/Hardy match getting a good rating.

I was kinda thinking that's the way it might go. "Draw" is a pretty nebulous term then. It would be different if we had access to the quarter hours and individual merchandise sales.

A PPV could draw the lion's share of its buys from having two strong cruiserweight matches while the main event's just there for idle curiosity. Or a PPV could draw from a huge main event with a lame undercard. We can make educated guesses on what sold a show but we'd disagree and no one would know for sure.

House show attendance and merchandise sales are more reflective of the brand as a whole. Do I want to pay fifty dollars to see the SD! crew? Do I want to pay fifty dollars to see WWE?
