Why is this the only WM where the buyrate numbers keep changing every month? Fucking ridiculous.
"Right now, I'm walking through this cemetery. Not because I'm sad. Because it inspires me. It's the most motivational place on Earth. Why is that? Because people die. When you accept the fact that your time on this Earth is limited, you'll do whatever it takes to make it count." - Bryan Bowers
In the ever-changing WrestleMania PPV number estimates, based on the latest information released in WWE’s monthly report, the number of buys for WrestleMania is now back up estimated at 1,216,000 worldwide. That’s up from the 1,114,000 the show was listed as doing as of one month ago. The new number would break down to 713,000 domestic and 503,000 international. The key is that it’s up domestically from the prior year, when a month ago it looked like it was even. Interestingly, the number now listed is almost identical to the numbers that one would have gotten (1.22 million) from the original report, three weeks after the show, as well as the first WWE hard numbers coming out of the show two months ago (1,214,000 with 711,000 domestic). On a worldwide basis, it remains in the No. 2 spot behind the 2007 show. It is now back within shooting distance of being able to top that mark if more than 37,000 more late buys come in, which is entirely possible.
On a domestic standpoint, it is in the top tier of the biggest WrestleManias ever, but it would have to hit 825,000 to be No. 1 (2007 show) and that looks unlikely.
The company will be making all its updated numbers official to the public including most likely a very detailed breakdown of WrestleMania in all facets on 8/2 at the quarterly investors conference.
