WrestleMania on NBC, CBS etc instead of PPV?

WM appears every year on PPV in the states, Sky Box Office here in the UK etc but could WWE not have the big event on TV where you at least don't need to pay for the actual event? you could get much more viewers like the Superbowl on CBS this year which normally gets 100+ million or the FIFA cup which gets 300+ million? I know WWE doesn't get that much viewers but do you not agree to some extent? They could also have it shown on Sky Sports or Sky 1 here in the UK & FOX8 in Auatralia?

That would be extremely stupid for WWE to do. They'd lose at least $40 million. Wrestlemania brings them too much money from ppv buys to risk putting it on NBC or CBS for free.

That'd be stupid of WWE. Like QA said, WWE would lose TONS of money. WrestleMania gets around 1,000,000 buys every year for the event on pay-per-view. Putting it on free TV would lose ALL that money from PPV buys. They'd lose millions.

As stated that would be stupid and WWE would lose shit tons of money. It's their main attraction PPV, even casuals and non-wrestling fans are interested and buy it on PPV.

Giving the Biggest PPV of the year for free?

Makes good business sense
