    Wow. How far has WWE sunk in the PPV business. While UFC and boxing usually get above 500,000 buys domestically, WWE can barely get 100,000. How sad.

      It's because there is really no point in purchasing WWE PPVs anymore. They already run 2 shows a week (not counting Superstars and NXT). In my opinion, more people purchase UFC and boxing PPvs because it is "real' and it is not regularly shown on TV. Also, wrestling fans are more computer savvy (online streaming).

    Same old matches over and over again. Not enough time to build engaging storylines between shows. Not enough attention paid to work rate and in-match storytelling (or maybe just not enough guys who can pull off a 20 – 30 minute classic?) No color! And $50.00 – $55.00 a pop (if you want HD) ? Ridiculous. I've been watching WWE since 1986, and it used to be that I would never miss a PPV. Now, I pick and choose. I get the big 4 and maybe 3 or 4 of the others during the year. They are way over-priced. If WWE would drop the price tag $10 – $15.00, I bet they'd make up the revenue in additional buys.

    Those are weak numbers.

    Way to many PPVs, should reduce it the big four plus one inbetween each of those. They are special enough to warrant the purchase and you know most of them will be filler PPVs that don't resolve or advance a storyline much so you end up feeling jipped. The in-ring action for most of the card isn't far beyond TV show level and you can catch up on the little storyline developemnt next night on RAW, so it's hard to justify a $50 spend.
