WWE domestic PPV buyrate total drops in 2010



Reported by Adam Martin of Wrestleview.com

In what can only be described as an alarming statistic, the total number of WWE domestic PPV buys in 2010 came in at 2,049,000. This is down from 2009 when the company did 2,726,000 buys. The final figures include the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

    I think it would help if they’d put some variety in their PPVs instead of giving us the same WWE/World title matches 2-3 shows in a row. Or in the case of Orton Vs. Cena, 5.

    Indeed. Is it any wonder that the crowd was totally silent during that spot in the Rumble where Cena and Orton faced off? It was clearly supposed to be a spot where the crowd would go crazy. But the crowd couldn’t have cared less. I wonder if the WWE will get the message and stop rotating Cena and Orton in every goddamn main event feud. Probably not though given the Wrestlemania plans.

    I always wondered why the wwe have yet to hold a ppv on a Saturday night. I think it would be worth a try considering They are PG and alot more family friendly.A family who normally would order out and rent some movies would have the option of enjoying a good ppv. Lets face it ppvs on sunday night alot of kids go to bed early for school parents settle in earlier too.I really think the wwe should give it a shot. Make sure to hype it up properly with a good card and see if the numbers would spike.

    It’s pretty clear to me that MMA is killing wrestling. You’ve got real life feuds and characters mixed in with real fighting and actual payoffs. The bad guy can actually get his ass kicked, why do you think Tito Ortiz has always been a draw? It’s not the same in wrestling anymore now that MMA is around. It’s made it even faker then I already knew it was.

    I think the main issue is, there are so many PPVs plus they are so expensive the average person can’t afford every single PPV, so they seek out other means of viewing them.

    I think that vince has been a genius over the years as far as rebranding a product such as wrestling to change with the times but we have to face it that the wwe’s time is up. People want reality these days, look at t.v and the net. The WWE, although its getting far more interesting, couldn’t be any further from reality. Now look at MMA.
    I was a die hard wwe fan and was introduced to mma by a friend and that was it. I used to make a big deal about raw or sd, now i couldnt care less. I keep up to date with wwe these days out of curiosity alone. Its ufc that i now stay up for.
