HHH/Axel; how does McMahon plan on competing against NBA?

Quote:
- The Triple H concussion storyline was reportedly pushed up from this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view. This could mean that the Triple H vs. Curtis Axel match was planned for SummerSlam but is being done at Payback now.

- Vince McMahon's new idea in dealing with the NBA destroying them in ratings is for someone to try and get the 2014 NBA schedule ahead of time so that WWE can book Monday dates opposite of NBA games in "hot" cities like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and others.

Vince's idea is that if RAW is going up against a strong game and wrestling fans tune in and see, for example, a Philly crowd going nuts on RAW, they won't switch the channel.

Would have made more sense for Axel at SummerSlam. You know, build it for more than 3-4 weeks out of the blue with a wrestler that just debuted. .

Not that I buy PPV's, but I would have been extraordinarily pissed if I spent money and got that match result.

So rather than improving the product through I don't know...THE WRESTLING, they're just going to schedule events in smark cities and hope for the best?

Why not do both?

Don't get ahead of yourself here, CD. One step at a time.

They show flashes. Very brief flashes. Maybe 1 or 2 segments on Raw every few weeks where I think, "wow, that was really good...can't wait to see where they take this now." Then there is either zero follow up or they kill the story within 3 hours.

Kind of like the cliffhanger on the opening of RAW this week?

Apologies, I misread it, I thought it said the concussion ending was the angle originally scripted to end the match at Summer Slam.
