Shares 0

WWE updated their Key Performance Indicators on Friday and in them, revealed preliminary pay-per-view buy numbers for Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber.

Exact figures for each show were not given but Royal Rumble 2014 exceeded 400,000 buys but was well short of the 512,000 they did in 2013. Elimination Chamber fell below 200,000 buys and was less than the 213,000 buys the show did last year.

Below is a screen grab of the chart:

2014 Q1

The two shows together added together did a reported 664,000 buys.

Below is a screen grab of that chart:


The official figures for each show will be released when WWE reports their quarter one earnings.

  • Mike McCarthy

    The 2013 Royal Rumble had CM Punk vs. The Rock, don’t think anybody expected this year to meet that level of buyrates.

  • J Vomkrieg

    Still don’t know why people insist on calling SummerSlam the 2nd biggest show of the year. It barely blips above a normal PPV these days and is miles behind the Royal Rumble.

  • Kleck

    The Rock sells buys. Can The Network do the same?

  • M.C. Elroy

    Do buyrates really mean anything? No matter how over or good something or someone is, why would anyone pay money to watch a performance that can be seen 5 days a week for free?

      This. Other than the Elimination Chamber match, every other match on that show was done again on Raw within a fortnight after the PPV. Most of the time, there are rematches the next night.
