Some good news for sure…
- According to the WWE financials released today, here is how the company's PPV performed in the quarter…
Pay-Per-View revenues were $15.7 million as compared to $13.0 million in the prior year quarter primarily due to the production of four pay-per-view events in the current quarter as compared to three in the prior year quarter. Revenue for the events held in both the current and prior year quarter increased 2% based on a comparable increase in pay-per-view buys. The average revenue per buy for these events was essentially unchanged from the prior year.
WWE Battleground (October): 114,000 buys, No PPV in 2012
WWE Hell in a Cell (October): 228,000 buys, up 29,000 from 2012
WWE Survivor Series (November): 177,000 buys in 2013, down 31,000 from 2012
WWE TLC (December): 181,000 buys, up 6,000 from 2012
Buys From Prior Events: 82,000 buys, up 12,000 from 2012
2013 Total: 782,000 buys, up 130,000 from 2012.
Note: If you take out the extra Battleground PPV for the quarter, the company still did 16,000 more buys as compared to the same quarter last year.
