- While most of WWE’s business metrics have either gone down or remained almost identical in recent years, traffic to the official WWE website has greatly increased. Through November, WWE.com has averaged 15.1 million viewers per month, up from the year before, which averaged 11.5 million visitors on a monthly basis. Despite the great increase in web traffic, this has not accordingly translated to sales increases on WWEShop.com. Merchandise sales are only up 3.5%, from 903 in 2013 to 935 this year.

– The current plan is for Triple H to face CM Punk at WrestleMania XXX but there also is a possibility of Triple H going against Roman Reigns. Reigns is currently slated as a “back up plan” for Triple H.

    i’d rather have them go with hunter-punk even though we’ve seen that dozens of times already. i agree with everything you said. it’ll be waaaay too early for reigns for all of their plans.

    Honestly the match I want is all 3 Shield guys in a 3 way for the US title, if booked right it could elevate both the title and the Shield but knowing that WWE thinks the only way to make stars is the short super push, so with that being said I’m okay with Reigns vs HHH.

    You don’t think it’s a little soon for Reigns? Mania is only 3 months away, and Reigns too most wrestling fans is still just known as the big guy in the shield. I hope they don’t make the same mistake with Reigns that they made with Ryback. I think they should have him work his way through the roster a little slower and get him ready for a big match at Mania 31.

    Yeah they need all the buys they can get, and when that fails, jack up the PPV price.

    Orrrrr they could give us matches we actually WANT to see

    Need to get the casual fans to buy the biggest PPV of the year. I’m fairly certain the overall wrestling fanbase is a lot smaller today than it was 10, 15, 20 years ago.

    Why do we need to continuously have “Wrestlemania returns” for people like HHH, Undertaker, Chris Jericho, The Rock, Hogan apparently, Batista now, etc.? I know, I get the “it’s the biggest show of the year, gotta have big stars on it” mentality. But all this honestly does, is point out JUST how glaringly piss-poor a job WWE has actually done of really growing/pushing new stars. Part of the reason that the New Generation and “Attitude” eras Wrestlemanias were so good, is because they actually built up and pushed new stars into the limelight.

    I’m down with HHH vs Reigns, it puts HHH on the card in a prominent position, whilst giving Reigns the big Mania match.
