That's interesting if the rockers do wind up keeping the belt because the rope break thing doesn't happen does that change the trajectory of Bret hart single competitor. Sure as hell could have because you know one of the things that we were looking at it was split up the hart foundation and go Singles with them at a martin says whether any discussions in to about trickling hall. Nash and hogan back into the wb individually or hall and nash as a tag team but not the in w or was the idea. Always just the in wwl it had many incarnations so you know there was there was talk of only bringing hogan back there was talk of a bolivian hall and nash. Back you know one end or the other so it was a lot of different incarnations. i think the vince wanted bring all three of them. Back in the felt that the three of them as the n. w was the strongest Captain chris says it's well known that you guys had to pay marvel comics for the use of the hawk name. Did you have to pay lucasfilm's for the use of the vader name. If not why not. Don't we didn't because he already had extremist darth theater. Right you stinky baiter. Okay stinky vader.

Leonidas was little smelly. His air his gear was gear was very smelly. Chris says brad's ninety three episode. It was mentioned. Brett versus yokozuna steel cage and anaheim drew over fifteen thousand people are closely. Was vince monitoring. How shows and with things like this factor in his decision to put the title brett at wrestlemania. Tim how she every single day. Yeah it's business. You see what your what your businesses every day. How shows were one way to establish in what was working. What wasn't in you attraction there and it didn't draw then you look at the attraction. Look at what else is going on in the market. But yes sir. They're monitored every single day and a lot of times based on what we've read online. It feels as if the data that you guys would use to research something like that like. Who's over you know. Give them a little more this. Give them a little. Less of that is who's on top. Who ak who selling tickets. Who's selling march. And who has the best ratings right. Is that sort of the. I'm not saying now. I mean back in the day man this quarter hour miss these shirts and this guy whatnot this card. We announced him and we got this percentage wise. That's the stuff that tells you the feedback from the audience. People voting with their wallet right. Yeah it's it's when people get out of their home they buy tickets and they load up the car and they take the family down to the arena than they buy merch and they buy a hot and soda a they actually make an effort to come to see your event. Television is a little bit different. If you promote something in advance then you can attribute ratings to that if if people are tuning in just for that you see a bomb but ratings are more of a of a monitoring in you look for trends because how does the television audience. What's coming up next. You can tell them but they have to be. They already have to be engaged for your tell them what's next you can promote if you're promoting ahead week to week and you see big bumps with certain things and you see a trend than than ratings means something but really meant something is people get getting up low nut car coming out buying a ticket and participating live event or pay per view.
