WWE issued a press release Thursday morning announcing more stats and information from WrestleMania 32 at AT&T Stadium in Texas.


– WrestleMania 32 was the “most social event in WWE history,” generating 2.5 million mentions on Twitter during the day and 1.3 million mentions during the broadcast. WWE said this was an increase of 50 percent and 18 percent, respectively, compared to WM31 last year.

– WWE Network subscribers viewed 21.7 million hours of programming during WrestleMania Week, or 12 hours per subscriber.

– WrestleMania generated $4.55 million in WrestleMania merchandise revenue, blowing away $1.2 million at WM31 last year. The wide variety of merchandise and use of the iconic Texas state shape for “WrestleMania Texas” helped sales.

WWE could have made even more money at the Smackdown TV taping in Houston two nights later, but they did not have WM32 merchandise for sale at the Merchandise Truck outside of the Toyota Center.

– WrestleMania data usage at AT&T Stadium totaled 8.6 TB, setting a new stadium record. WWE compared it to the 2015 College Football Title Game at AT&T Stadium, with WM32 generating 36 percent more data traffic.

WWE benefited from a near-seven-hour show compared to a three-and-a-half hour football game.

Oh look at that, more records broken. Watch Roman Reigns single handedly bankrupt Vince into billionaire territory :lel. You know you're desperate when you use PPV buys as a negative metric, two years after the Network launched for 1/6th of the price.

Why does anyone buy WWE PPV's? The Network is $9.99 and a decent stream isn't hard to find. I'll be damned if I ever pay $50 for another PPV.

Your sig is hilarious. Where did that Brock go?

Those are solid reasons as to why some would pay $50 for a WWE PPV. Before the Network, I had stopped purchasing the PPV's. It just wasn't worth it. But they can have my $9.99 each month.

Obviously PPV doesn't mean as much as it once did. Didn't the main event of Fastlane determine who was going to be one of the WM main event participants? WWE will never go out of business with the setup they have in the US right now. Just like we were told so many of the past Champions were going to run WWE out of business in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.



What a great week.

I wonder if they will say the same thing about Roman or if they will just bring up that he got couple hundred thousand more views on youtube than some midcard geek.

Though I don't think it's Roman's fault more to do with creative as they should be able to make anyone a draw Goldberg proves this he had no wrestling or mic skills.

I'm still surprised at how much they made when they were basically giving away Mania for free.

In my eyes, giving away their biggest event of the year was not only a bad idea when it came to making money off the network subs and such, but I think it also devalues the brand. I know they want to bring in subscribers and all, but they should illustrate that their product is actually worth money to them.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I will continue to bring up social media and everything that falls under that umbrella. It's nothing to be denigrated and with the latest figures the WWE released (which everyone but @Legit BOSS no sold because it didn't fit a sky is falling narrative), the WWE seems to be in good financial shape. Their bottom dollar remains better than ever even if they're not bringing in 10 million viewers as they used to in their prime.

It's actually a risky and brilliant business strategy. Like you said, it could have cost them a lot of money to give away Wrestlemania for free to new subscribers, but here are the benefits to the gamble:

1. Hundreds of thousands of free subs from Wrestlemania try the rest of the Network and get addicted.
2. Free subs turn to paid subs.
3. They get a boatload of new paid subs for the month of April, with a potentially disinterested minority deciding not to renew.

So yes, they may have lost some money by giving away their biggest event for free, but you've got to spend money to make money, and it's beneficial in the long term to get as many people as possible to try the Network before they buy it, like a crack dealer.
