    TNA has hooters and WWE has nothing. Justice at last. Now only if I can get my local BWW to carry TNA ppv’s and we might have something.

  • Richard

    I wonder if thats from now on becaus ei went last night and they had it

    Most places around here haven’t aired WWE PPVs in years. UFC is much more profitable these days. WWE has a hard enough time selling their product in the first place. The last thing they needed to do was give people more incentive not to buy their shows. Really stupid move on their part.

    Hell BWW makes tons of money with all the sports & PPV’s but I cant blame them for dumping WWE if the rate was over tripled. This move will hurt WWE in a bad way due to the fact many people enjoy going to BWW/bard etc that carry PPV’s because (a) its cheaper & (b) they end up getting a meal.

    I remember going to Hooters when they had PPVS and I’d easily drop 50 on food and drinks and that’s just for me. If WWE was smart they’d try to work out a percentage of sales in return for the PPV. Places might agree to that depending on the percentage.

    700 isn’t bad for the amount of money they pull in that day (not counting other PPV’s and specials for other sports) but to go from 200 to 700 is just insane. Maybe say 400 tops or a very gradual increase over time with the place knowing about it in advance as opposed to just doing it abruptly.

  • WHAT DA HELL?

    Boxing legend on saturday, Wrestling legend on sunday. Great week end.

    throw in The Four Horse Men and Edge…WOW!

    Give us the final icing on the cake with either Macho Man or The Rock!

  • Stevie P

    That’s a 250% increase! Yeah I wouldn’t want to carry it if they were doing that. Has the product gotten 250% better?

  • Effmenow

    700 bucks for a ppv? And they wonder why their buyrates are dropping like flys…
