    FUCK! :facepalm:
  2. Blame the WWE casuals
  3. Fuuuuckkk...
  4. Well, suppose our only happiness about WM (seeing WWE get horrible results for a bad build/show) is out the window.
  5. I'm hoping Rock really doesn't wrestle again now because we're sure to get Rock/Cena III next year if he does.
  6. So who was it who said Meltzer is normally good with numbers? KLockard23

    Fuck you Meltzer, and fuck casuals.
  7. I'm pretty sure he wasn't the only one who reported that.

    The word 'normally' means what it means for a reason. And 'early numbers' are called the early numbers for a reason, too.
  8. Meltzer is normally the only dirt sheet to report numbers. The one posted here, was from Meltzer, and yet again he is wrong.
  9. EARLY NUMBERS. I knew not to be too optimistic just yet before the final numbers came out. I was, and am left disappointing about the final buy rate as well. And even now, the numbers could be higher than they are now.
  10. Defending Meltzer? :pity1:
  11. He's not as bad as people make him out to be. I'm still no fan of his, of course.
  12. Im a fan of Meltzer but at the same time I do not like him, so I can be a fan of his, but I might not be as well.

  13. You can defend someone without being a fan of them. I give guys like Hogan, Cena and others that I don't care for their due, even though I've never been a fan of theirs. I don't give Meltzer extra slack because I don't think he's any worse than the grand majority of the dirt sheet writers. But it's not like I purposefully seek out his opinions or reports on things either.
  14. You clearly didn't get Farooq's joke, lmao.
  15. I assumed it was directed towards me and completely misinterpreted what I was saying.
  16. :pity: It was just a joke
  17. Lol he was mocking Meltzer's reporting style.
  18. That's sad.
  19. Last years numbers came out at 1.3m then dropped to like 1.1m at their lowest didn't they? This could still drop to 1.1m or below.
  20. 72 million wow
