Re: PPV's should be on Saturdays

Well you see all us wrestling fans have this great life and we're out on Saturday night partying, getting drunk and having sex with lots of women. By Sunday afternoon, we've gotten over our hangover and we're ready to watch some wrestling.

Why do you think Friday Night Smackdown has such low ratings?

WWE PPV's end at 9:00 P.M. EST and 10:00 P.M. CT in the U.S. anyway, that really isn't all that late.

I think the bigger thing is just, "Can PPVs get bigger numbers on Saturday" type of question. If it isn't broken, don't fix it. But you should always be looking for ways to improve. Look at TV Shows, for first 1-2 seasons, a show might be on a certain day/time and do great, but then network moves them to diff day/time and they do even better.

Wouldn't mind WWE trying out 1-2 PPVs on Saturday and seeing how those numbers do. There's more people in WWE Universe overseas(meaning basically everywhere that's not north or south america), so WWE should be having PPVs that could be drawing to those places alot too. If PPV on Saturday Night leads to like(just making up numbers), 30,000 less people in USA ordering, but like 50,000 more outside of USA ordering, then I'd consider that move a success.

I think in todays world, Sunday night has alot more tv shows getting big numbers than ever before(sunday night football,sunday night baseball,along with new episodes of TV shows on all the big 4 USA network). Saturday Night isn't known for being tv night, but WWE PPVs get like 200,000 people buying anyways, so saturday night won't hurt it that much, and like I said, it'd be helping out buyrates overseas more than anything.

So you can't just look at a WWE PPV for being on Sunday or Saturday night, you also have to look at it as being sunday or monday morning(or afternoon) in many other places in the world. TV Shows is one thing(meaning to care about USA ratings over international ratings),but buyrates really doesn't matter where they come from. A buyer in USA is giving the same(I believe the same?) amount of money as a buyer in England or something. Money is money, no matter where it comes from.

I'm sure most people on here over the age of 18 have ordered a PPV before the wonders of the internet make it obsolete

Re: PPV's should be on Saturdays

Bad idea. It only works for Boxing & UFC because bars and clubs are willing to pay for the event and charge people to watch it. Besides more people go out to watch UFC events in places like Hooters and Buffalo Wild Wings, wrestling is something you watch at home with the kids. Its not conducive to the party atmosphere.


I remember watching Lesnar catch that Velasquez ass whooping in a club. It was on every screen in there and drunk dudes were yelling at him. Oddly enough when Pacquiao lose to Bradley I was also at a club and drunk people were yelling at him. Those were the last two times I was in a club lol
