    Yeah the feud is hardly going to end at extreme rules. It will probably be in the card for the next 3 or 4 ppv’s.

    They do the match at Extreme Rules to try and retain as much as they can of the huge buy rate they got at Wrestlemania. Tradition would be to build it up for Summerslam, but there’s no way they hold onto nearly as many PPV buys if they wait until August. And honestly, at this point, doesn’t it make sense to try something different.

    @Jason I understand your line of thinking but 2 things you might be missing are 1:there is no way possible that this is the blow-off match in this feud 2:having Brock in a major match at a traditionally B PPV will serve to show the company exactly what kind of a draw they have just paid for, both seem like sound business decisions the latter being a necessity

  • Stevie P

    I am actually with Jason on this. This feud is extremely rushed and I don’t like it. I am intrigued to see a Brock vs Cena match but so quickly? Not so much.

  • Jason

    Yeah having a three week piss poor feud instead of a 3 month build to a great feud is so much better for business as a whole.

  • nnac

    cause why continue having the ppv be b-rated, when you can try to make it good? makes perfect business sense…

  • Jason

    I still ask why in the hell would they give away the biggest money match that they have in there entire company on a B PPV instead of a PPV like let’s say Summerslam? Makes no business sense to me..

  • Hasan

    Should’ve been Last Man Standing

  • Litahashugeb00bz

    Ya because they dont want Lesnar to botch….hello
    Chair shot win

  • Zach D

    That just made the match a whole lot better, but I’m still not spending $50 on it.
