Preliminary Double or Nothing PPV Buyrate Is Above 200k Buys

Dave Meltzer noted it, based on early numbers, Double or Nothing did above 200k buys.

That's incredible given the fact that Wrestling fans have been conditioned to not wanting to spend more than $10 with the advent of the Network, and PPV's like MITB 2011 did less than that. Survivor Series 2013(which was before the network), did like 180k.

Usually Summerslam, Royal Rumble, and Mania would blow past 200k easily, but it's still a very impressive number given it's their first show and no weekly TV yet.

That would be a fucking incredible number.

Mindblowingly good for a company that hasn't had a single TV show.

Ever felt like you were being punished for liking professional wrestling?

That's all I get with the E.

The question is if that is a domestic number or an internal estimate of the entire reach the company. It's still a fantastic number and excellent news regardless.

I think people especially the fans that incessantly worry about numbers need to be aware that there is a difference between domestic numbers and global numbers.

From what I've heard it was a fantastic show last night and am looking forward to catching it Tuesday when I have enough time to sit and watch it.

Great news. I also have no problem with them charging $50 for the shows, especially if they are not going to be doing them monthly. If you like something, put your money behind it.

Re: Preliminary Double or Nothing PPV Buyrate Is Above 200k Buys

Here is WWE's 2013 buyrates in comparison (last full year they did PPV, and I am not counting Wrestlemania in this)

Royal Rumble - 512,000

Elimination Chamber - 213,000

Extreme Rules - 231,000

Payback - 186,000

Money in the Bank - 199,000

Summerslam - 296,000

Night of Champions - 175,000

Battleground - 114,000

Hell in a Cell - 212,000

Survivor Series - 179,000

TLC - 181,000

Average WWE buyrate in 2013 not counting Mania - 233,454

In Comparison

Double or Nothing - 200,000


AEW a company that has yet to air a show on Television, only a handful of recognizable stars would've been the sixth most purchased PPV in 2013.

Sky is the limit for AEW and trust me that 200k buyrate is going to turn heads in Stamford, hell even if this number is exaggerated and it was only 150k buys this is beyond impressive for a new company that has yet to air on Television

That's a crazy number if true. I predicted like 30k-50 in the DON thread.
