Cryme Tyme Segment Panned, SSlam 2008 Buyrate Comes In Low

Nick Paglino

Although it sounded to me like there were some funny things being said, the general backstage feeling about the Cryme Tyme/Miz Morrison commentary battle last night was that it did not go over as well as planned. The two sides could noly be heard through the constant overlapping and shouting that was taking place, and in the end creative felt that the bickering stole too much from the Kelly Kelly vs Jillian match.

The buyrate for WWEâ<80><99>s 2008 SummerSlam pay-per-view is in and itâ<80><99>s probably not sitting well with Vince McMahon and other WWE officials. The show did 465,000 buys, which is about 270,000 in North America. That compares to 537,000 buys for the 2007 SummerSlam and 529,000 buys for the 2006 SummerSlam. 2008â<80><99>s event featured John Cena vs. Batista and Edge vs. The Undertaker in Hell in a Cell, the 2007 show featured John Cena vs. Randy Orton and the return of Triple H vs. Booker T while the 2006 SummerSlam featured Edge vs. John Cena and DX vs. Vince and Shane McMahon.
