Re: WrestleMania 28 buyrate drops to 1.15 million
People need to realize how much 40,000-50,000 buys are actually worth. In retrospect, Lesnar getting just 40,000 extra buys for ER from last year sounds terrible, but when you realize that EACH one of those buys were worth between $55 to $70 bucks each, it becomes a different story. Remember, WWE jacked up their PPV prices in recent years giving them more profit even if they have lower buys. It's not like the old days anymore where a good card would get you 100,000-200,000 extra buys anymore compared to last year.
PPV's were relatively cheaper then, and also, there's the fact that LOADS of people stream now. And if they don't stream, it's a million times easier and cheaper to just watch it or download it in 24 hours without reading spoilers.
