As for the ER buyrate, it's one month after WM28, the biggest money show in wrestling history, very hard position, especially when it's basically a one match PPV and nobody cares about the other mid card matches, Rock/Cena had HBK/Taker/HHH as another big attraction, this PPV has nothing. last year was around 200k overall, this year it's probably going to be 250k-300k with 300k being a great number. The big problem is the collapse of the international market and domestically WWE are doing their worst PPV business in history so that should tell you everything + people are not going to buy a random B show in this era, which is why it's a terrible decision to do Lesnar's return to PPV on this irrelevant show. Lesnar is going to carry ER on his back this year. That's obvious.

I disagree with recent comments, looking back at older WWE PPVs they had something interesting going on on most shows, which also led to more people buying them. This still applies till today, see MITB last year, people want exciting matchups all the time, if there are no fights worth viewing then people certainly won't find the shows worth paying for either. When wrestling was still a hot topic, like when WCW and WWF fought against each other during the late 90s having a dull, filler PPV was not an option. Now obviously that's not the case anymore, WWE is not afraid of TNA and their 10k or less buyrates, but I don't see why from a fan, or a business perspective some people think that it's good having needless PPVs with uninteresting matches, especially since Lesnar is on a limited appearance sort of contract so Vince would want to make as much profit with Brock while he's in the WWE.

Vince does want to make as much profit as possible using Brock, thats why this match/feud should be built for Summerslam 2012 not ER.

What do you do for 4 months then? Brock isn't leaving like The Rock had to. Have him destroy guys like Kofi Kingston & Zack Rider over and over?

In that case they made a mistake by bringing him back too soon. Should have saved his big return later towards summerslam. Besides, judging from the RAW opening seg rating, it doesnt seem like his return made a big difference anyway.

So your feeling is Brock should of wrestled Summerslam & Wrestlemania and left because its bad business for him to wrestle at any other events?

Brock wrestling his first ever match in WWE = big money. Doing that at summerslam means a biggger profit. are you not getting it?

I get it but I think WWE has bigger plans for him going into Summerslam. In the ideal world you would do this but WWE has 10 other PPV's a year that they need to make people care about. That is why they are having Lesnar wrestle at Extreme Rules.
