If he's in the right angle and with the right person, he will draw on PPV.

Which is why these guys are brought back for. To bring the $$$ in from PPV

Not necessarily, but you have to remember that those aren't the only people buying the PPV. Whether it's drawing new viewers or not, it's an interesting angle with a fresh 'era legend'. I'd be surprised if Extreme Rules didn't pull in a few more of that four-mil faithful.

I'm thinking that type of casual fan looking just for Lesnar won't stick around to watch Three Stooges, Santino, Rtruth, Brodus Clay, and other no names on TV with a ton of commercials but they hopefully would be inclined to see Lesnar featured in a big main event match on ppv.

That type of casual fan isn't even watching just for Lesnar. That opening segment last week, with that huge brawl, and Lesnar's first segment in 8 years, drew less than the Punk/Jericho segment later on in the show. For two guys who supposedly "can't draw", they sure did pretty good there.

But yeah, I don't see Extreme Rules doing anything spectacular in terms of buys. Pretty much similar to last year's, slightly lower, in my opinion. This Lesnar/Cena feud is nothing special, and it appears the audience agrees. I guess we'll see come the Extreme Rules buy numbers.

All that is important is how many of those viewers can be convinced to pay to watch Lesnar wrestle, I'm sure ER will bring in a solid number of extra buys solely because of him. Because without him there are no proven draws other than Cena, I keep repeating this but the fact that all PPVs since MITB have been down on the previous year except two (Survivor Series & Mania) tells you something about the current product and roster. Ratings were awful on the RTWM and it ended up breaking records, Brock is something different that I think people will pay to see

lol, a taped Raw drew more than the live one from the week prior.

Next week should have a good overall number (for at least the normal two hours) being that it's the final show before ER, and Lesnar/Cena contract signing is advertised... and contract signings always end in chaos of some sort.

Guess we'll have to wait and see.

B PPVs mean squat shit. If this was one of the big three PPVs than maybe he could draw huge numbers, but this is a PPV that most people don't care about.

Wrestlemania should have showed you that the correlation between ratings and ppv buys isn't a particularly strong one, UFC also proves this every month.

3.0, 3.1 etc, not a big deal. Think we care more on here than Vince actually does nowadays. Ratings are not as important as they were back in the MNW.

Lesnar definitely can't draw. Dude's a waste of time.
A 'draw' is based on how much money they make the company, not on ratings. Its PPV buys and live attendance that make somebody a draw or not.
