And yeah, the connection you tried to make between the Goldberg and Albert chants makes you look like an idiot. Not only were they on completely different levels of stardom, but they also were chanting "Albert" to mock and antagonize Tensai. They chant "Goldberg" at Ryback because he's a cheap knockoff of one of the biggest draws of the prior decade.
Fans chanting Goldberg at Ryback does not prove they want him back. They were mocking Ryback too. Some fans want him back but how many WWE fans would watch TNA just because of Goldberg and or buy TNA PPV's ? You guys are assumimg he is a big draw in todays market and in strong demand from wrestling fans without a shred of real evidence.
Brock helped WWE get 250k buys for ER...up 40k IIRC. And Summer Slam had a 50k increase. By comparison CM Punk raised MITB 2011 buyrate by 30k with his Summer of Punk storyline. And The Rock raised WM buyrates by 250k with WM 27 and 350k with WM 28.
