    Early WrestleMania Buyrate, WWE Adding African Americans, More

    Source:WZ

    The following are some news tidbits from Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter. You can obtain subscription information at WrestlingObserver.com

    - Early numbers indicate that WrestleMania XXIV did approximately 1.1 million buys with 700,000 to 800,000 of them from North America. This will place it at number two on the list as one of the most watched pay-per-view events in WWE history.

    - WWE is taking the initiative to get more African American faces on television. Over the last year WWE has lost Boogeyman (out with a torn calf), Marcos Cor Von, Booker T, Sharmell, Kristal Marshall, and Bobby Lashley. This is likely the reason for Cryme Tyme’s return out of nowhere.

    - The WrestleMania XXIV DVD will include the entire Hall of Fame ceremony and the pre-show Battle Royal.

    I miss Booker, Lashley & Cor Von.

    They should push Shelton & Elijah to appeal more then.

    It'll be good to see more black faces on WWE TV. Growing up its harder to get into Wrestling when there isn't many people you can really relate to. Hopefully Shelton, Elijah, and CrymeTyme can spearhead the african american revolution in the WWE lol

    Well ECW at one point had Marcus Cor Von, Bobby Lashley, Elijah Burke, The Boogeyman, and Big Daddy V! That was most of the roster

    But I love diversity in wrestling so I obviously support it.
