So strange to see Vince finally cash in when the product is at a low ebb.

$200M a year for Smackdown on FOX broadcast on Friday nights. Wow. What a starmaking vehicle, but odds are they’ll be on FS1 in under a year.

Yes, it's a bit ironic. Especially with the success of All In which signifies that wrestling fans are fed up with Vince and the WWE.

One of the things I think goes unnoticed about the All In sellout is that I think it sold out so quickly because it was not under a promotion. For all of the talk of wrestling making a comeback and the business being 'healthy', I think that is a concerning issue. If the fans are fed up with promotions/companies and will only sell out large venues if a wrestler or particular group of wrestlers are promoting/booking the card...it's tough to see the business as 'healthy' because you need promotions/companies to put together more of these cards.

So it makes you wonder what FOX is thinking if not only is the WWE on a downturn, but there's a lack of faith of promotions/companies from the fans.
