Re: Official The Rock WWE Championship Discussion
From the way I see it, there's improving, like doing better hype for the EC matches and there's wasting, giving away a huge match like Rock/Orton on a PPV that nobody cares about when you can get the entire audience's attention on another show and make it memorable. You can do Rock/Lesnar at OTL, but that's throwing a nuclear bomb in the middle of the ocean, when on another date, it can shake the world with an arrow. I don't actually see Vince doing such a ridiculous move even today BTW, just hypothetical scenario.
That's true. I think with consistency, though, that would actually benefit them to have matches like that. Might get interest back up in the B PPVs. At the same time though, I'm sure most fans at this point are pretty set on what they're going to order each year with WM and SS being at the top followed by Rumble and then SSeries and perhaps something like EC or MITB as a fifth.
