2012 HiaC got more than the TLC that year?

posted on 11/3/13

It seems that generally buys have gone down since the Attitude Era days except for Mania which has gone up. Interesting

posted on 11/3/13

Might be because back then WWE was more consistently good whereas nowadays they just put everything into 'Mania and its build up and then s guff the rest of the year.

Unforgiven 2000: 605,000

The Diva

Makes sense. A significant portion of WWE's fanbase are in a position that despite feeling alienated from the product remain sentimental about it (myself included to large degree), most of those fans tend to order WM as groups either out of habit, hope or nestaglia.

It's the one pro-wrestling PPV that unifies all demographics, a promotional masterstroke to it's industry

Diva - that was Judgement Day 2000 mate

My bad what was Unforgiven?

Was it the Triple Threat?
Angle V Rock V HHH when Angle got concussed when the commentary table collapsed?

posted on 13/3/13

Nope, if memory serves me correctly it was a fatal 4 way between Rock (c), Taker, Kane and Benoit where Benoit got a controversial pin but the match restarted and Rock retained.

I miss Benoit

And this is why WWE won't ever go back to the TV14 approach.

PG era is bringing in the cash whether we like it or not - not to mention merchandise being through the roof.
