And in all honesty, a no-contest is the right call—it's best for business.
There are plenty of complaints about WWE Battleground. It's important to remember that the internet fans comprise about 25% of the WWE audience. Decisions like this—bringing back the extra fall pay-per-view—aren't for us. They're money making decisions that the casual fans, 75% of the audience—aren't complaining about. They're just looking for a night with friends to enjoy some wrestling. They don't care about The Big Show's formerly iron-clad contract, or the fact that Randy Orton once terrorized Stephanie McMahon. They just want to enjoy wrestling. We could learn a lot from those casual fans.
Watch out for news about The Greg DeMarco Show, soon to be presented exclusively at WrestlingInc.com. If you'd like to familiarize yourself with the show, myself, cohost Patrick O'Dowd, former WWE/NXT Diva (and current Shine Wrestling star) Su Yung and Florida based independent manager/announcer Heather Lynn on Sunday after WWE Battleground for our post-PPV reaction show. Listen here and call-in at 760-888-5749 to share your thoughts at 11 pm eastern Sunday night!
