A Televised WrestleMania?
 
What do you guys think of a televised Wresltemania, live on TV, instead of a PPV? Would it be a success?

I personally think having this Wresltemania or possibly Wrestlemania 30 live on TV could possibly be better than having it a as a PPV. Basically they would have to rely on advertising vs buyrates. I think it'd be a risk worth taking (after some hefty researching of course).

People will watch a Wrestlemania if they see advertisements for it and it has the Rock, and it might even do better than as a PPV.

I think it could be a very good for wwe considering its long term effects. WWE should advertise that WM like hell using slogan like " Wrestlings own superbowl now on FREE TV" etc. If they did that marketing right they could get lots of casuals tuning on monday night raw.

Would love to see it happen but the WWE would lose out on money. They should have companies pay them like a million dollars to advertise there product on commercial just like a Super Bowl commercial, to make there money back on what they lost to ppv sales

Depends on what you think the ratings would be? Theyd be big but not big enough for them to charge Superbowl level ad space.

PS: This thread has me looking forward to the inevitable 'Wrestlemania is bigger than the Superbowl" thread

well Wrestlemania is in April, so it won't even collide with SuperBowl, that's a good thing. wouldn't even compete with that.

But you have to take into account, all the things WWE could advertise themselves, since they will definitely be reaching a much broader audience. Plus, the Rock is a huge draw to non-wrestling fans as well. So if he was main eventing (like WM 28) then I I think they could justify charging a shitload for ad space, and make up for it, and profit.

Or at least do the RR on TV live.

mid match commercials every match twice a match would suck for a Wrestlemania.

Wrestlemania on free TV would mean commercial breaks out the ass, wrestling isn't football where there is a ton of downtime between every play, you just can't have the majority of your biggest show of the year be commercial breaks and it still turn out as something memorable.

Not to mention there is no way, no matter who is main eventing WM, that a free version of it would draw the 10 million+ viewers they would need to make a profit off of ads. It's just a bad idea, wrestling isn't a sport you can give away for free.

Elimination Chamber might be a good shout, put a good show on there and people are encouraged to get the next one.
