Elimination Chamber vs Olympics

Anyone else think that the Olympics could impact amount of people who buy/watch Elimination Chamber? I know people always think of it as an excuse during a big event as to why WWEs rating(or buyrate) was the way it was, but think about it like this:

WWE has NEVER held a PPV on the date of the Olympics closing ceremony before.


But the Elimination Chamber PPV is scheduled for February 23. The date of the Olympics closing ceremony. Last Winter Olympics closing ceremony had up to 25M people in USA alone watch it, so that just makes me wonder if it might impact Elimination Chamber too, especially since the entire world will be watching it.

Re: Elimination Chamber vs Olympics

If it were the gold medal match of an extremely popular sport, I could see there being an impact, but it's the closing ceremony we're talking about. There probably isn't much crossover between people that like to watch guys get slammed onto metal flooring and people that like to watch parades and elaborate displays.


God, this third hour of Raw really drags...

Sports section has over 300,000 posts, so what does that tell you......And many big name athletes(Biggest being A-Rod,Shaq and Lebron James) are fans of WWE as well...

Re: Elimination Chamber vs Olympics

just like TNA cant get ratings cuz of the NBA playoffs? or shark week? or any of the other hundreds of events they blame their shit ratings on?

I think the PPV is just a little underwhelming in terms of the story lines they bring to a close at EC shows, and most wrestling fans these days are only buying up summerslam, the rumble, and WM

“Look, let’s start with some tough love. You two suck at peddling meth. Period. Did you not plan for this contingency? I mean even the Starship Enterprise had a self-destruct button.... I'm just saying.” –

Re: Elimination Chamber vs Olympics

There's 9 hours time difference so the closing ceremony will be over way before Elimination Chamber. Unless NBC (or whoever) show it on a time delay.
