Early Word on Royal Rumble Buys, Legends House Update, Beth vs. Tamina

– A rough cable estimate on WWE’s 2012 Royal Rumble pay-per-view has it doing between 250,000 and 285,000 North American buys. The official number should be out in about three weeks.

– Beth Phoenix vs. Tamina for the WWE Divas Title may be added to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

– There’s talk of debuting WWE Legends House on SyFy April 17th, a Tuesday night. There were some people surprised that WWE couldn’t get the show on the USA Network.

    @Jason You talk about all the ways TNA is better than the WWE yet no casual wrestling fan outside of the IWC or overseas even knows what TNA is. However, if I mention wrestling, then the same casual wrestling fan will think Vince McMahon and the WWE. Now length of time in existence does possess merit in this argument and I grant you that, but the progress of TNA has been at a very slow rate to say the least. You come on the WWE section to talk negatively about all the things wrong with the WWE while trying to convert some of us over, but you are barking up the wrong tree. I think you honestly should be trying to convince the casuals about your product rather than us. Die hards do not pay the bills, casuals do. 🙂

    When did I say TNA was better then WWE other then product wise? It’s clear WWE has more money, it’s clear WWE has more fans, and it’s clear that WWE has way better production. Beyond those things though TNA is miles better and only a WWE mark would say other wise in 2012. CM Punk is the only guy in WWE that is making headlines in the wrestling world while TNA has Roode, Bully Ray, James Storm and Austin Aries. 3 of those guys HHH wants to sign from TNA but they said no to him. Name any other worker that got a bigger pop then Roode or Storm or even Aries di this past week on Impact? I dare you

    I would also like to point out a great PR line on this topic that I use all the time on the radio, WWE is 67 years old vs. TNA being only 9 years old. You do the math bucko…

    This is the part where Jason says “TNA is better than WWE.” “Blah, blah, blah.” “TNA’s gets better buy rates, oh wait, they don’t.”
