Extreme Rules PPV Buyrate + Why Was Josh Mathews Released By WWE?

- The Josh Mathews release was a big surprise within WWE. He was well liked and did his job well, apparently he did nothing wrong to be released and by the WWE Network, bringing in no where near the estimates that WWE thought they were going to get. With that being said, he was released due to budget cuts.

- With the first PPV after WrestleMania to be only on the WWE Network and no PPV companies in the U.S holding the event, they got OK numbers. It is estimated about 107,000 buys for the pay-per-view. Funny, because the same event produced 209,000 buys in 2013. It is assumed that it got 40,000 in north America.

The main event saw Daniel Bryan (c) defeated Kane to retain the WWE title, Bray Wyatt (with Luke Harper and Erick Rowan) defeated John Cena in a steel cage match and The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns) defeated Evolution (Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista) in a six man tag team match.

The show was a three match show and all three matches delivered in my eyes. Let me know what you think in the comment area below.
