The WWE's promotion of WrestleMania for free led to a total of 2,124,000 subscribers worldwide for the Network for its biggest show of the year.

The paid total was 1,808,000, up nine percent from the 1,661,000 paid for last year's WrestleMania. It should be noted that the past several months had a $9.99 price for three months instead of one month.

WWE also touted that there were 25.2 million hours viewed in total among the subscribers over this past week, beating last year's number of 22.5 million. This would mean that the average time a viewer spent on the Network in total over the past week was up and the average number of paid subscribers for the first three months of the year was 1.56 million, up from the expected total of 1.53 million. Keep in mind a lot of that was discounted offers.

The key to the discounted offers is the hope that those subscribers stay and pay the full $9.99 going forward, and it really won't be until the August numbers come in that you can fairly compare the two years.

However, WWE also noted that its anticipated OIBDA for the first three months of 2018 would be about $30 million, above its projections from a few months ago where the first quarter OIBDA would be $23 million to $27 million.

Management predicts total OIBDA in 2018 to hit $145 million, up from its $140 million projection. It's fairly certain at this point that 2018 will be the most profitable year in company history.


Vince always wins in the end.

Thank god I don't pay a penny for this company. I'd have killed myself after that show last night if I payed 1 fucking cent for them. They don't deserve a fucking cent.

But for someone who hates the company you still post here and tune in to watch.
But I'm still not paying, I'm watching because it's been a habit for 25 years, it's part of my life. There's still some good shit that happens every now and then like the Bryan return for example, but they still don't deserve one dollar. That mainevent last night is a proof that they are legit insane and don't know what they're doing.

WWE Network is fucking amazing and worth the price. The old school library brings so many tears to my eyes, it's like I'm a kid again, reliving the best times in wrestling. I watch the newer stuff here and there, but, most of my time is devoted to when wrestling was good.

If you liked Bryan's return, then they deserved your dollar. Point blank.
