As for OTL, meh. At least it's up from last year's number. And honestly taking into consideration that it came after WM and ER, it did pretty well. For a PPV headlined by Johnny Ace vs. John Cena, I'm surprised it's not lower than last year's.

And Wrestlemania.. lol.
Find me the last time a PPV other than a big 4 put up 250K. You're going back a few years for that.

By the way that PPV in July flopped miserably in 2010. MITB didn't put up that special of a number. They hit 210K on 2 or 3 C level PPVs every year.

It's delusional to think Lesnar or Rock equals 300k on any crappy PPV. That's not how it works. The name of the PPV sells 1st, and Rock and Lesnar have the ability to move that PPV up 10-20% and that's what they've done.
