According to a new report by PWInsider, WWE had representatives at several locations on Sunday for the Extreme Rules PPV including Hooters chains and were handing out surveys asking fans for feedback on their interest in different ways they would be interested in viewing future WWE Pay Per View events.
One option included playing a cover charge at restaurants and bars to view WWE PPVs. One portion of the survey that received some strong feedback was fans being interested in attending WWE PPVs that would be aired via closed circut in high definition at movie theater chains, which is something the company already does in Canada through Cineplex Entertainment.
Closed circuit was used for many major pro wrestling events in the past and was used for the first three WrestleMania events before the introduction of Pay Per View. A large number of entertainment entities have begun to embrace the closed circuit style once again in recent years.
