New Hall of Fame Logo

– Even if WrestleMania 29 doesn’t match the record-setting 2007 event of come even with WrestleMania 28, it will most likely set a new mark with overall pay-per-view revenue. WWE has increased the price of WrestleMania by $5 so it will be $59.95 for standard definition and $69.95 for HD this year. If the price increase doesn’t turn buyers away, it will lead to $3 million in extra revenue, based on 1.2 million worldwide buys, not including the increase in viewers who have moved to HD. Based on changes in annual trends, viewers moving to HD could add another $900,000 in profit.

– The No Holds Barred stipulation for Brock Lesnar and Triple H at WrestleMania 29 was decided on just a few days before RAW as several stipulations including Hell In a Cell were being considered. One idea discussed would have Shawn Michaels be in Triple H’s corner to counteract Paul Heyman being there.

    Wrestlemania has not been worth the money in about 6 years, so it is really not worth a price increase.

    Why WM 29 will make big bucks? Because most WWE fans are idiots.

    I’d be an idiot to buy this ppv.. It was all right to pay my hard earned money back in 1999 to see The Undertaker, Triple H and The Rock in the main event back then but now it would be like buying a used ’99 car today at the same price it was worth when it came out.

      IKR IT’S BECAUSE OF BAD BOOKING AND TERRIBLE WRITING AND THE CONSTANT ANNOYING USE OF TWITTER WWE SUCKS. AND THE WHOLE NEW WE ARE A ENTERTAINMENT COMPNAY NOT WRESTLING.
