but in a short answer yes they could sell a PPV but probably not beat their earlier sales in numbers as the company has changed a lot since.
Nah, no reason to do it in this case. It's The Rock vs Steve Austin, the greatest rivalry in the history of the industry, they can wrestle now, they can wrestle 20 years from now. It's big.
Fans were literally begging for another match when Rock sarcastically teased it in his HOF promo:
But if you put Rock/HBK or Rock/Sting, I will take it above Rock/Austin simply because it's first time ever match, and that's what Rock came to do in his current run.
