From time to time I have a great idea (comes few and far between), but most of the time I have wild ideas that simply don’t pan out. Could this idea be one of them? Who am I to judge, or question, my own ideas? That’s why I’m putting them down into written word, for y’all can read, and answer for yourselves, as I have, should WrestleMania be on NBC?
Before I get into why I think WWE WrestleMania should be on NBC (reasons should be clear, but I’ll take time out to answer that), let me give out reasons why I’m asking the question. I was pondering a little during little of the Super Bowl that I watched this year, why isn’t WrestleMania on a basic station, like the Super Bowl, for all to see, and Vincent Kennedy McMahon charging an arm, a leg, and a snow plow charge, for commercials during his Super Bowl?
Before I go further, why NBC? NBC is owned by Universal, which also owns the SyFy network and the USA network. Most of the series WWF/WWE Saturday Night’s Main Event was on NBC, so why not put the biggest show on the same station that WWE has been on for all of those who don’t have any kind of cable TV? For those who ponder why I mention that, my own Mother doesn’t have cable television, so it would be nice for her to watch WrestleMania, if she wishes. Thank you.
After that brief detour, let’s get back to the original question that I proposed. Could it work if WrestleMania would be on NBC? I’m sure after a few years; WWE would be making their money back. People would be exposed to the business, and they could be sucked in again (if they were fans before). Could this cause another boom in the wrestling business? I’m sure it would. Look at football and the Super Bowl, even baseball and the World Series, those two respected sports caught America’s eye for a season (or seasons-meaning more than one year).
We all know people get happen, especially the evil character of Mr. McMahon, get more money. In words of Mr. McMahon and the Million Dollar Man, it’s all about the money! I’m Eric Darsie from St. Cloud, Minnesota, heading out to read some of Ted Sider’s “Four Dimensionalism,” signing out!
