    WM 29 Buyrate

    according to SESCOOPS, WWE officials are very worried about this years buyrate.

    http://www.sescoops.com/early-wm29-b...-ts-heel-turn/

    evidently the early figures are WAY below expectations, and according to the source "downright shocking"

    this should be music to anyones ears who is not a kool-aid drinking fanboy.

    it will be interesting to see if they change course at all up until the official buyrate is released, and their response afterwards.

    if the buyrate is that low, vince will have no choice but to wake up and smell the coffee per say regarding his theory that the matches and talent sell, not stories and build. and also break his crutch of relying on part time stars to main event the biggest show of the year.

    no doubt there will be a major reaction if the buyrate is in fact that low...hopefully it will be for the better.

    No wonder ROH isn't going anywhere.

    OT:

    I don't think it'll be 'downright shocking' level low. Probably somewhere in the million, million point one range, instead of the 1.3.

    One have to look at the factors for why the buy rate most likely lower then the 1.3 million...
    1. the price increase...
    2. the USA barely escaping the Fiscal Cliff and many countries including the USA is coming out of a depression or recession or what ever one want to call it..
    3. the build of the show and matches... they had a month and a half to build the show up most of the upper matches wasn't known until the 1st Raw of MARCH or there after....
    4. the outcome of some matches...
    We all judge others even if it isn't our place to judge, but supposedly at the end we are all judged by one!!!
    Wrestling, women and money who could ask for more???

    i would think anything less than last years would be considered a failure by the brass.

    but you are right, shocking would be anything under 1million, and i do not see how that could ever happen.

    i think that is by far the biggest factor, i do not know about you guys, but i had very little interest in the story side of these matches.

    that, and all 3 of the main events we have seen before at some point in time, and had VERY predictable results...

    I think it's because we've seen all the matches already, especially John Cena Vs The Rock. There wasn't that big of a reason to buy the card. I mean I liked the matches but since Del Rio and Swagger was the only main match that did not happen before, that this WM was not going to do to well. Shame.

    The show had a horrible line up so if it is low they deserved it.
