Updated Royal Rumble & Elimination Chamber PPV buys:Big Increase in numbers!
As part of WWE’s first quarter earnings report earlier today, the company released updated pay-per-view buyrate figures for the Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber:
- The Royal Rumble drew 512,000 total buys, up from 443,000 buys in 2012 and 446,000 buys in 2011.
- Elimination Chamber did 213,000 buys, up from 178,000 buys in 2012 and 199,000 buys in 2011.
Overall, WWE PPV revenues were up 15% percent (to $37.5 million from $32.5 million) compared to Q1 2012.
I think EC PPV numbers will even increase further,though this may be the final number for RR.
