    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.

    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.
