  2. Geoff says:

    That wasn’t exaggerated at all.

  3. What about that whole downright shocking thing a week or so ago?

  4. -J- says:

    thrice in a lifetime, for the glory!

  5. VicVenom says:

    $$$$, HERE COMES THE MONEY by Naughty by Nature

  7. alan says:

    well when the ppv price jumps 10 or 15 dollars from previous year of course its gonna gross more.

    Its the same way with movies, they should go by tickets sold and not total money, thats why there is always a new highest grossing movie ever, imagine how much star wars would had grossed if ticket prices were as high then as they are now

  8. Chicago Made Punk says:

    ironically, the worst wrestlemania in the last 10 years.

  9. Fisha695 says:

    @Alan, exactly. The price of the PPV itself went up as well as I think it was reported that even the cheap-seats cost more this year then last year.

    CURRENT WRESTLEMANIA XXX PLANS!!!

    Stone Cold Steve Austin vs CM Punk
    yes its going to happen, Austin just had surgery earlier this year and will begin getting into ring shape as the year progresses!!

    WWE Championship
    John Cena (c) vs The Undertaker

    Undertaker has decided to call it quits with Mania XXX being his last match. The deadman as already quoted there are a few more people he wants to work with before hanging up the boots. The Shield and Brock Lesnar are currently on his list and of course the golden goose himself, john cena!

    “The Final Chapter”: Triple H vs Shawn Michaels

    HHH will also call it quits with HBK the man he wants to finish his career with. HBK has been involved in HHH’s last three mania matches. Shawn has said he will never be one of those guys that retires then comes back but for his best friend, their history, the biggest show ever, how could you say no

    The Rock vs Brock Lesnar

    This was planned for extreme rules believe it or not, obviously rock got injured and required surgery so the plans were scrapped and replaced with another HHH vs Lesnar bout. That being said WWE creative feel a part time vs part time wrestler and as mainstream these two are the amount of money they could pull in would add value to what vince wants to be the biggest event EVER in wwe history

    These are the FOUR big matches already discussed and being organised, even though its a year away!! Get excited!!

    Why is anyone surprised? PPV and ticket prices are insane!

    WWE is finally coming within 200 miles of me after almost 7 years, and they want MORE for House Show seating than TV! Almost $200 for floor seats for a freaking House Show? $600 for VIP? They’re off their rockers at this point.

    downright shocking? believe it was “surprisngly shocking” which doesnt always mean its a bad thing.

    Seriously? Some of you people on here are hillarious and not in the you are funny way but in the its sad and pathetic how far you will go to refuse to admit you were wrong.

    where did that “surprisngly shocking” quote originate from? one of those websites with the headline that says click here to see wwe storylines revealed for the next 6 months? then you click it and its nowhere to be found?

    Some of you really believe what you see on the internet too much and even over exagerate on what it actually means.. surpsingly shocking.. perhaps they were only expecting 1 million buys but got 1.2 million instead, the argument could be made that is surprisingly or downright shocking. Doesnt always have to mean they were expecting 10 million buy and only got 1.2 million.

  13. Jon says:

    Just want to add, for as much as some of you proclaim to hate and despise wwe and complain about everything they do, you sure comment on every article.

    Why is that? Why are you watching their shows if it bothers you that much? who is forcing you to watch raw or sd or wrestlemania or any ppv? Nobody, so why complain about something you could choose not to watch.

    Doesnt make sense.. complain about something you choose to watch? dont like it?turn it off, in which case,dont comment anymore. i dont get it.. “I hate wwe, wwe sucks, raw sucked this week,wrestlemania sucked, i hate wwe” oh gotta go RAWS ON..thats just.. it doesnt make sense.

  14. Jon says:

    What part of, YOU DONT HAVE TO WATCH IT do some of you dont get.

    This complaining that some of you do, its pointless.. its absolutely ridiculous. it makes zero sense to complain about something you dont have to watch..

    and if you arent watching, then what are you complaining about exactly? something that doesnt effect you? it just doesnt make any sense. The IWC logic doesnt make any sense.. it really doesnt. You guys bash on wwe for not making sense but you all do the same thing…you continually do not make sense. Push this guy, they do, HE SUCKS push this guy, they do, he sucks, push this guy, they do, HEE SUCKS.. its just ridiculous. complaining for the sake of complaining is pathetic.

  15. Jon says:

    DAVE: I CALL bullcrap on your post, these are all matches being discussed,LOL @ thinking wwe even knows whats gonna be on raw this monday let alone wrestlemania in a year from now.

  16. Matt says:

    *Claps for Jon*

    Thankfully someone sees the holes and calls them out on it. Most internet wrestling fans do nothing but cry and complain and clearly show they despise most of wrestling. WHy do they waste their time watching an entertainment show that doesn’t entertain them?

    For this it makes someone like me and outcast on wrestling forumns. How could i possibly watch WWE, be entertained and not really see much to complain about? This doesn’t quite work for a lot of people.
