    Unless the majority of hardcore wrestling fans is just you and Speeps, then I highly doubt that statement is correct.

    I remember almost wetting my pant during the match because Big Show sort of at least knew how to work this crowd. (Is this the one too where he made fun of some guy by saying, "I make so much more money than you!" or something ) Batista got way to frustrated. He didn't know what to do with the crowd.

    Exactly. People can say what they want about Cena, but at ONS 2006, he got the worst heat among anybody and was able to work off of it. Batista had no frickin' clue as to what next. He's like, "uh............no little kids in this arena. No morons either, just adults who hate my guts. What do I do?"

    Heh, useless piece of crap Batista.

    The best part about that entire incident was Batista's perplexed mannerisms. He didn't know whether he wanted to fight the whole crowd or curl into a ball and start crying in the middle of the ring. At one point, it appeared he wanted to walk out... and I'm sure in his mind, he considered it.

    Fight over 2000 people who hate your guts? That's suicide. Then again, why didn't he do it and give us an even bigger laugh?

    No idea. He has a great cocky attitude. I don't see what's not to like.

    Because that Hotel room he trashed caused room reservation prices to skyrocket subsequently ruining vacations for millions of people.

    No, they're the real deal. Check WWE.com's corporate page for yourself. Plus, since the company distributes PPV's, they're not allowed to lie about their sales and figures.

    They lie all the time. Like only selling 5,000 tickets to a show, and claiming attendance of 8,000 by opening the doors and letting people walk in for free. It wouldn't surprise me if they padded their PPV stats the same way.

    Live show attendance is down.

    TV ratings are way down.

    Yet, PPV buys are way UP?!

    That just doesn't mesh. There's something fishy going on.

    WrestleMania is an exception to the rule. The other PPV buyrates are low around the 200000-something buys.

    They sell out almost every arena they go to. Every time they've been here in Houston, no matter if it's just a house show, the Toyota Center always sells out.

    I can't say the same thing for our Houston Rockets though.

    Just last week you read about how Smackdown/ECW failed to sell out.
