Understandable though.

They booked the WWE title match from Over the Limit on Raw one week after people paid over $40 dollars for it. This week they booked the triple threat from No Way Out on Raw. They booked the world title match from the same PPV on free TV, on Smackdown 4 days after the PPV.

Even Stevie Wonder could see the Big Show heel turn at OTL. They hyped Johnny Ace's last show as NWO, but then he appeared on TV the next night in a match!

No wonder people lost faith in PPV, with the exception of the Royal Rumble match and the big budget spectacle of Wrestlemania.
