But with WM, even if it did 500,000 buys @ $100 each (the price can be set higher) - the WWE are missing out on real business....

I know, I can't help to feel that they've sort of devalued Wrestlemania.

It's now $9.99, while people in the US would pay around $70-$100 for a brilliant drawing WM. The US PPV market is still hot...

A broadcast levy is very unlikely to happen. For a start it's a German idea - in which it pays for two public broadcasters that also are allowed to screen commercials.
Also, German TV is hardly...

BTW: remember when WWF coverage on Sky, fell behind a week? Around the time of Survivor Series 96!

I am guessing that Vince was pre-occupied by the war and there was a delay in Sky negotiations!
