From Tremont Nichols: I was just watching “The Wheel House” On SNY with Scott Ferrall And Brandon Tierney and in the “9th Inning” they were talking about Floyd Mayweather and WWE. Ferrall was saying that ” Wrestling is fake and he thinks Floyd Mayweather is only getting 5 Million Dollars to fight that thug(The Big Show). He said UFC kills WWE in ratings because there # 1 when it comes to males 18-35 and they also get more PPV Buys. Meanwhile, Tierney was saying if you ask anyone south of 45 about boxing they’ll be saying things such as Pipers Pit etc.. They made great points but i wonder if Ferrall knew WWE has gotten higher ratings than UFC. (The Show aired at 5:30).
