Is WWE trying to get out of the pay-per-view business?
Does it hate its customers?
It's hard to think of any rational justification of not giving fans an ending to a pay-per-view that they paid $50 for.
The only way you can justify one wrestler ruining the finish to a show is if that person is incredibly special and the buzz from their appearance would be worth it—perhaps Hulk Hogan somehow holding back the hands of time and leg-dropping Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton. Maybe Steve Austin deciding he's returning to the ring full time, or Andre the Giant rising from the grave and doing a run-in would have sufficed.
But The Big Show? The man that Vince McMahon said on air hasn't been good since 1999, ruining a pay-per-view main event?
That's not good enough.
Show has been the most horribly pushed and inconsistent character in WWE in years. There's far more reasons to boo him than to cheer. WWE wants us to be mad at him, or at Stephanie McMahon, or Brad Maddox or Triple H for the ending of the show to build some good heat. But we're not.
Fans are rightfully mad at WWE for not giving them a finish they paid for.
WWE dropped the ball on Daniel Bryan when he lost the title at SummerSlam. The company then jerked fans around with Night of Champions by reversing the decision the next day. Battleground is the worst, though. Fans were left with nothing by the end of the show, except for their anger.
Now, WWE is asking fans to shell out their money again to see if maybe, hopefully, no, seriously this time, for real, Daniel Bryan will win the title. It's doubtful many will fall for it.
The good will has run out these past couple months. The sagging ratings mean fans aren't happy. Digging back into 1999 isn't going to push things forward.
