    wrestlemania27 got more ppv buys then tna will get throughout its whole existence. cant imagine how many wrestlemania28 will get

  2. Neumanrko9 says:

    I don’t care what the haters say, The Rock = Ratings

  3. AJ Starr says:

    Matt… and UFC is STILL going to get quadruple what WWE is getting this year, just like every year. What is your point exactly? Wrestlemania is beaten by every single UFC PPV, regardless of what the Main Event is, so does it really matter?

  4. RJ Ace says:

    I know you hate WWE AJ but Wrestlemania this year still actually beats the average UFC PPV. Every UFC PPV does not top a million buys.

    @Matt- You’re comparing a company that’s been around for over 50 years that has generations of fans to a company that’s been around less than a decade. That’s like bragging about the Super Bowl crushing the Arena Bowl in ratings, Just because WWE is more successful than TNA doesn’t mean the product is better. WWE’s ppv numbers have been on a steep decline the last few years with the exception of Mania and the only reason it broke a million this year was because of The Rock. It’s temporary fix for a long term problem. TNA has been way better than WWE since Summerslam hands down.

  5. McMahon says:

    TNA hasn’t been consistently better at anything and is completely irrelevant to WWE’s PPV numbers.

  6. Sub Zero says:

    There used to be 300,000 people a few years ago who will buy any WWE PPV. That number has dropped 67%.

  7. scotty says:

    LMMFAO at somebody saying that TNA has been better than WWE since Summerslam!!!!!!!!!!!! That product is garbage. Plenty of talented wrestlers over there, but absolutely NO direction or focus on the program. TNA was WAY better back in it’s early years. Now, it’s just sad really.

  8. AJ Starr says:

    Uh… Scotty… that’s the same with the WWE.

    Every week, same matches. EVERY WEEK. I cannot recall the last time I actually sat through an entire WWE match, because you can just sit there, and call the moves bit for bit, because you just saw the same match a few days prior… and the week before that… and a week before that… then the PPV the previous night.

    Oh wait… and somewhere… Mark Henry does a front slam.

    Actually, while WWE sold 3.1 million ppvs from January to September, UFC sold 4.5 which is not 4 times… and only a couple ppvs (2 or 3) in UFC history sold more than a million, Wrestlemania was the biggest ppv of the year (UFC’s best seller of the year sold about 800k). So, before trollin, check your sources ok?

    And to the guy that talked about the “67% drop” it is actually a 40% drop (not good but still not as bad as you said). The growing internet streams don’t help either…

    And what abou TNA’s Bound for Glory with almost 4000 people in attendeance and 25-35k buys? WOW, THAT’S THREATENING!
