Re: Royal Rumble Buys

Tremendous numbers, thus showing again why Rock is an amazing draw no matter what. Also helps Punk expand his brand. Mark this as a win for the WWE.

Re: Royal Rumble Buys

Considering The Rock's popularity worldwide, International number is shockingly low. What happened there? Domestic increase from 2013 to 2012 is about the same as last year's Rumble had compared to 2011 Rumble, indicating interest wasn't there as it was expected.

Overall hard to call this number a success considering all the hype about Rock's chase of the WWE title in 10 years and all the supposed mainstream appeal and credibility he is suppose to bring to the title.

Re: Royal Rumble Buys

The increase is about the same when you compare the number year-to-year.

2012 domestic was 299,000
2011 domestic was 278,000.

Rock's chase of the title should have had more interest. International number is also low considering the Rock's star status worldwide.

Not sure what you mean about the increase being the same... buys for RR had decreased vs previous year in 2012 and 2011.

The number was definitely good although I thought it would get a bit higher
