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.

NOW you've done it

I stopped buying them after the last price hike, because I felt I wasn't even getting $30 worth of good wrestling.

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.

How much are the webcasts? I doubt they're $40 and you're getting some bonus matches as well. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

As one could tell from going to the website, $35 with those bonus matches. I wonder if it's supposed to be a discount, or if they haven't gotten the memo about the price change. - CMLLBlog

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....

So what does everybody think.. Is this the start of the return of Tazz, ECW legend? Or is this yet once again just an evil plan to have us mark out for 2-3 weeks before everything returns back to normal..
