Wrestlemania Gets Over 1,000,000 Views

With a number of buys that would usually make Vince want to jump off a building.The show did under 400,000 regular buys but with the 660k+ that it did on the Network, the show set a record for most people viewing the show, according to WWE.  That was the plan, and it’s not even taking international buys into account yet.  That’s a VERY good result for WWE.

    DirecTV announced they’re no longer carrying WWE’s PPVs, so I’m screwed.

    Heyo Reply:

    Isn’t that the EXACT opposite of what they want to do? Now they’re forcing WWE fans to get the Network to see the PPVs, therefore encouraging more subscribers.

    Seriously, that’s a move that ONLY benefits WWE at this stage. Nice going, guys.

  2. this was an incredible tactic

    if it’s according to the wwe does that mean it isn’t verified?

    I’m surprised I thought the numbers would be higher. Oh well they are still raking in money.

    I’ll believe it when the numbers are finalised – don’t forget, they thought WrestleMania 28 did 1.6 million at first, but ended up at 1.2.
