Re: Initial Summerslam Buyrate

Lord Meltzer says that Lesnar isn't a star outside of North America. Thats why the international butyrate is shockingly low.

Well kind of. Big Dave said the International audience still sees him as the 2003 WWE Brock Lesnar, whereas the US sees him as the UFC badass.

Re: Brock lesnar potential new contract

I wish he's active every Monday Night, he doesn't need to do tours if he doesn't want. I want to see him wrestle guys like Punk, Bryan, Ryback, Orton, Mark Henry, Wade Barrett the brawler, Sheamus. It will be very interesting and it will help him and them a lot.

So Brazil doesn't have high amount of buyrates? I really thought a place like Brazil would be really high, considering the popularity of UFC in Brazil

Re: Brock lesnar potential new contract

The problem is that the current contract is a disaster. Vince has really lost it when he threw 5 million dollars to a guy who only appears 35 times a year and he'll earn an additional 140,000 dollar if he exceeds the 35 appearance limit per appearance. Basically Vince isn't thinking straight. Brock Lesnar doesn't draw 5 million dollars for WWE. He does increase PPV sales but WWE loses a huge chunck of that profit to PPV companies and to top it off Lesnar isn't exactly a merchandise draw. Vince should have signed Lesnar for 50 appearances that way Lesnar would have been on Raw the whole year and would have only miss a few weeks & PPVs. The Rock gets payed 5 million as well but The Rock has sold tons of merchandise since his return to the company with his "Boots To Asses" merchandise & other merchandise with Rock catchphrases. Lesnar has Vince by the balls and I guarantee he will want more money and the same appearances. I'm willing to bet that even Cena's base salary isn't 5 million. Personally they should just sign back Jeff Hardy. Jeff Hardy will cost a lot less and will bring more money than Lesnar.

That's a load of horseshit, nobody knows for sure the finer details of Brock or Rock's contract, nobody knows how much money either guy is making from the company and more importantly FOR the company. What we do know is that Vince is a pretty shrewd businessman and he wouldn't sign Brock if he didn't think the guy was profitable and he most certainly wouldn't then RE-SIGN him if the deal was as bad for WWE as you make it out to be


IT WAS JUST BANTER

Re: Brock lesnar potential new contract

9/10 Most fans would want him to stay, he would be the huge heel in wwe if somehow he did appear more and remember like he was before in wwe, would love see old brock like that.
