    sucks they're down but it's not by a whole lot. Neither PPV really had any all star matches to it.

      RR was especially inferior. I was highly disappointed in RR.

  • Brandon from south Africa

    Yeah the Royal Rumble was also a bit underwhelming… Hopefully this recent spike in PPV quality continues forward. Both WrestleMania and Extreme Rules were high quality shows.

      WrestleMania wasent as good as i had hoped.

        It was never gonna be. Everyone imagined the perfect wrestling show so whatever WWE put on, people would have complained it wasn’t what they had imagined.

    In my opinion the RR PPV is only down because last year it was a 40 man thing, who would want to miss that. While this year it was e same old thing (in my opinion actually better)

    I think that WWE is losing more byrate becasue wwe is making the wrestling look fake everybody says that it is fake and stop watching it.
