WWE still has some fans who still buy pay-per-view although the numbers have gone down dramatically over the years. There are still people out there who pay $54.99 to see what WWE has to offer on their monthly specials.

Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that 100,000 even decided to pay full-price for WrestleMania this year. They might do this because there is an issue with internet in their area or they might just not want the WWE Network for some other reason.

“Most WWE pay-per-view do around 15-16,000 buys. One that’s a little bit bigger it’ll do about 20,000, as noted Mania did 100,000. 15-16,000 is the average. The previous record low in this era was 11,000 buys… the buys for Stomping Grounds — and these are non-glitch — these are the real numbers. 9,800 in the U.S. So this is an all-time record for a WWE pay-per-view.”

This is quite an accomplishment. I mean, we knew that the numbers had to be low, but to break an all-time record is something pretty special.


Congratulations, WWE.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
