This lower ppv was alwasy going to be the case after JJ's stunt and the cancellation of 151. I think I even made a bet with someone on here that it would be the case. Don;t think he took it though!
People were saying it would further up the PPV's, that might happen if JJ was a controversial type of guy, but he just came off as being a lying dick from that whole thing, not a Lesnar type controversial guy, and so people aren't as interested to see him fight anymore. Less fans of your champ = less PPV buys
