Where did you get the 281 number from?
Not all those buys are from Lesnar. If you look at extreme rules it seems Lesnar adds about 30k+ buys, no difference I see here, if anything he underperformed considering it was an A show(I blame the angle).

Also they do not get all the money from each buy, 50%+ goes to the cable/satellite provider.
281 comes from nothing other than taking 30,000 away from 311,000 from last year, which is just assuming it lost that much if Lesnar/HHH wasn't on the card, following the downward trend SS has been on the last few years (really, it would've been 40,000 if the decreases continued at a steady rate, but I was nice). It's all speculative, nothing factual. So basically what I was figuring was 281,000 came from the fact the PPV is Summerslam which draws itself for plenty of fans and also some credit to Punk/Cena/Show. And then Lesnar/HHH boosts the show up another 70,000.

But like I say, it's nothing concrete and I'm just talking out of my ass to stir the pot a bit, just as you're doing with how you figure Lesnar/HHH underperformed. As far as not getting all the money from each buy, I know they don't get all the money off each buy, but didn't how how much went to cable/satellite. Not to mention the other costs that go along with the PPV. It's why I said "revenue", which I might not be using in correct context, and hence why I said to correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm watching you...

Re: Initial Summerslam Buyrate

Just imagine how much more it would've been had they had Brock beat Cena at ER. Anyways, that's a good buyrate for any ppv in 2012 not named Royal Rumble or Wrestlemania.

LOL what an idiot. So just becuase you predicted a random number 370k and Summerslam couldnt reach your prediction, it means the angle didnt work? If I predicted a 2 million buys for wrestlemania and the PPV doesnt touch it, does that mean the top drawing angle is a fail?

The PPV outdrew last year's buys by a fair margin and was a gigantic success in US, dumbshit! It means the angle worked, not fail.


Anyways, Good for Brock and Triple H, they deserve full credit for this. It was a one match show after all.

This really shows you how WWE is living and dying with mega-stars. The gap between these guys and the current roster is absolutely huge. Good luck keeping the boat afloat once these guys are done for good, Vince.

Both of these things tbh. That's a great result and just imagine how much more they could have taken had they actually had Brock beat Cena at ER and put more effort into the build for this match.

Re: Initial Summerslam Buyrate

It speaks volumes about how much the pay-per-view market has eroded in the last four years that a 65,000 domestic buy drop from that time period is seen as a huge boon based on the last three Summerslams. Granted, Batista/Cena was a huge draw and a dream match at that time. Nevertheless, it does say something. The marquee match-up between Lesnar and Triple H also barely registered with international PPV purchasers, which is interesting, based on the year-to-year numbers for Summerslam.

Having said all of that, though, it's still a very healthy number that WWE will be happy with. I'm actually planning on watching Summerslam again on DVD as soon as I can, so this is good timing haha.

Re: Initial Summerslam Buyrate

North America wants to see muscled freaks in Lesnar/HHH while Europe wants to see vanilla midgets like Punk/Bryan lol. We're more refined over here!!

Re: Initial Summerslam Buyrate

Remember, this is just first reported numbers. Late buys could make the number go up.

WWE doing well in PPV this year.

I hope Brock does get another contract.
