Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Actually, Mayweather got between 2 and 5 million dollars for his match at Wrestlemania 24.

The fact is, that Wrestlemania with celebrities draws, especially today. Look at WM23 and WM24 when we got Trump and Mayweather - the cards weren't that good, the build wasn't something special too, but this two Wrestlemanias got most buys in history. Look at WM26 - amazing card - Taker/Shawn II, Cena-Batista, Edge-Y2J, Bret-Vince but it got only 880 000 buys. WM27 - extremely weak card with only one BIG match (Taker/HHH) but the appearance of The Rock made it 3rd or 4th most ordered in history.

So, if Shaq competes in this year's WM, I am 100% sure that WM28 will be the most ordered and watched Wrestlemania of all time. The Rock in a match (against Cena, the biggest match ever) + Shaq as a celebrity (who'll also compete in a match) - I'm damn sure it will get minimum of 1 400 000 buys.
