Wrestlemania on free tv?

> Scott,

> Do you or anyone else on the BoD know if Vince and company ever explored the possibility of selling Wrestlemania to the networks like the super bowl? I know with the current model they are making approx.. $60 million in ppv revenue.

> The NFL tv rights are worth $3.1 billion a year across fox, CBS and NBC and that's for all games broadcasted including the super bowl.

>

> 2 years ago the super bowl brought in about $250 million in ad revenue. Could WWE draw a 3rd of that and get a network to pay $75 million for Wrestlemania? You would have to think you would get more eyeballs just because it's on free tv right?

> Curious to hear your thoughts.

The yearly WM special barely draws a million viewers, and their flagship show does 4 million on a GREAT day. Vince would be suicidal to throw away PPV revenue on that level when advertisers still treat our so called sport like its the ghetto of TV.
