History Behind Bill Goldberg’s Undefeated Streak…..




  • The huntress in the night

    Does NBC and WWE really think people are excited for a ppv that is this old, when there is nothing about it you cannot already find online ? It’s not like WWE is letting them run say In Your House ppvs or something.

  • TripleB27

    If the WWE and NBC had any brains, they’d show WrestleMania 30 LIVE on NBC. They’d make a killing on ad revenue and the WWE would bring in viewers they normally wouldn’t. They’d lose PPV buys, but by offering it for free, they’d more than make that back.
