    How can people order these ppv every month? I thought we were in a freaking depression

    • Da KiDD

      If you sit down and check your monthly budget, you'll notice you too spend money on things that aren't "necessities." We all do…that's how you get a good balance in life. What's wrong with spending money on something you consider an outlet? People need to stop blaming stuff on a recession/depression. It obviously isn't bad enough for you if you still have internet to make that post

    The power of CM Punk as Champion & CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan

  • Richard

    The rock boosted wrestlemania. Brock boosted extreme rules. DB and Punk boosted over the limit and no way out.

  • Hillbilly Jim

    This is why no one orders TNA pay-per-views

    • XKonn247

      What? Shut up. That statement makes zero sense.

  • DaMan

    Clearly shows Punk as the Champ has good drawing power. Yes Rock and Brock boost sales, but Punk carried the torch. Of course there is Cena as well. Bryan also carry a bit of his weight. I will be upset if Punk loses to the Rock at Royal Rumble.

    IMO, Taker vs HHH in HIAC with HBK guest referee boosted the PPV sales for Wrestlemania.
