Rena “Sable” Mero was the third biggest mover on Wednesday in Yahoo.com searches. Brock Lesnar was No. 15. The surge in searches is probably due to Yahoo.com having a front article on Lesnar that day, which mentioned his divorce from Sable. WWE was No. 7 in total searches on the day.
TVWeek.com has an article on WWE switching to HD sometime next year. There was an interesting back-and-forth with Bruce Leichtman, President of Leichtman Research, saying because WWE has more of a downscale appeal, its viewers are less likely to own HD sets, and said it isn’t like people are going to start watching WWE because it’s in HD. “Either you watch it or you don’t.” WWE’s Gary Davis, vice president of corporate communications countered by saying they have doctors, lawyers, accountants and construction workers as fans and there fans are more likely to buy HD sets than an average U.S. adult.
