wrote:The early estimates for the WWE Judgment Day PPV is that the show managed to pull in around 230,000 buys. If this number is accurate, then it would beat Backlash's buy rate by 10,000. Wrestlemania 22 is still looking like the WWE's strongest show of the year so far in buy rates with 930,000.

Ouch, I'm surprised that the Backlash buyrate was so weak considering that it was a well promoted show. It's impressive that Judgment Day even did that well considering how it had virtually no buzz going into the event and everyone figured that it would have ended with JBL celebrating a second world title victory.

Although he, as a born-again Christian, was hardly thrilled with the DX antics, he had yet to make a public complaint due to fear of coming across as "difficult."
He was, however, extremely set off by the "oral sex scene" that took place on Monday's RAW, and asked for a meeting with Vince McMahon about DX's direction. Sources are not yet aware of the status of that meeting.
Shawn Michaels will get knee surgery following the culmination of the DX angle, which was largely designed to boost summer ratings while helping HHH transition to babyface.
Get over it. If you'll do a tag team match where your partner is supposedly God, you can handle this.
