WWE reported earnings for the fourth quarter of 2013 and full year results on Thursday. In them, official pay-per-view buy rates for the quarter were announced. There were some ugly numbers that you can view below:
- WWE Battleground – 114,000 buys
- WWE Hell in a Cell – 228,000 buys (compared to 199,000 in 2012)
- Survivor Series – 177,000 buys (compared to 208,000 in 2012)
- WWE TLC – 181,000 buys (compared to 175,000 in 2012)
This of course is all about the change with the launch of the WWE Network but it’s safe to say WWE is probably less than thrilled with the way Battleground and Survivor Series performed.
