Why exactly is it fair? It's not like Guerrero will sell more PPVS than anyone else on the market.
Alexander will probably sell just as much. Let's not pretend Guerrero is some PPV extravaganza because he's not and he will never be.
2.5 million is what he's getting. Ortiz was a bigger name in 2011 than he is now, Ortiz got 2.5, Ghost will get 2.5
