A way to maybe get a few more PPV buys.

  1. I don't know if this is smart or just really dumb but what if WWE announced a match on the Summerslam pre-show for summerslam? Sounds simple, but here me out.

    RVD and Dean Ambrose are fighting for the US Title. Just as RVD looks to win it, Rollins and Reigns run down and attack RVD. This brings out Henry and Show. After a little bit of fighting between the 6, Miz (since he's host) comes out and makes a 6 man tag match for all the gold and it starts right away. After 5 minutes or so, the announcers say that the pre-show is over and if the people want to see the rest of the match, they need to buy the PPV.

    I can't tell if that's really good or just plain horrible. What do other people think?
     
  2. Judging by what's going to happen on Friday Night Smackdown, it seems like quite a sensible thing to do. So yes, double the Shield would be nice.
     
  3. This isn't a terrible idea actually. Though I'm not sure a.) who watches the pre show with no intention of seeing the PPV (by hook or by crook) or b.) how much those 6 can draw, even in a spur of the moment type deal, compared to Bork, Cena, HHH ect. Basically I'm saying if they had made a conscious decision to not buy the PPV beforehand, they aren't suddenly going to make an impulse buy based on a feud with no real steam.

    So while I'm not sure it would increase buyrates by much if at all, it would be interesting to see unfold from a booking standpoint.
     
  4. Team That's What I Show :haha:

    I'd watch every single WWE show if Henry and Show's tag team is called Team That's What I Show
     
  5. Well, that'd be OK. I wouldn't be mad but I wouldn't really care for it either.
