Re: Preliminary SummerSlam PPV Buys

I bet the Triple Threat at the Royal Rumble was the only saving grace, Reigns winning the Rumble wasn't of course.



Thanks to @CJ for the Becky avatar!

Aaron Harris w/ Leanna Harris in PWC.


Veronica Haze in PWA.

Re: Preliminary SummerSlam PPV Buys

Holy shit, 150,000 buys for a PPV is a shitload considering the Network shows it.

150,000 x $60, that's about 10 million, plus another 10 million from the Network (for the month), that's good fucking money.

Quick $20 million.

Lel Lesnar and Taker probably got half of it.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

Re: Preliminary SummerSlam PPV Buys

123,000 is the correct prelim number so its down slightly from a year ago. pwtorch were confused with the fact that under "Average Current Period Buys" wwe included total buys from battleground and summerslam

the weekly show and its ratings have nothing to do with the success of summerslam/mania/rumble etc. you get lots of casuals tuning in just for the big shows now..given it was the new york market, taker vs lesnar, stephen amell and john stewart also attracted people that wouldn't watch raw/sd normally or at least not weekly

lets not forget summerslam weekend was hugely successful with 3 straight sellouts (first time wwe have ever sold out an nba arena 3 nights in a row) and google searches for summerslam were at the level of a wrestlemania suggesting way more people than normal were watching

Holding those Ls in the rain must be burdensome for the forecasters predicting a drought.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

Re: Preliminary SummerSlam PPV Buys

This is part of the reason why I think WWE doesn't care as much about ratings anymore. They make money in other ways these days.
