How Did Royal Rumble & Elimination Chamber Do In PPV Buys?

– It was revealed in the WWE’s Financials report this morning that the PPV business was down this year.

Royal Rumble – 467,000 buys. This is down from 512,000 in 2013. Last years show had The Rock Vs. CM Punk for the WWE title. This year’s had John Cena Vs. Randy Orton for the WWE title.

Elimination Chamber – 183,000 buys. This is down from 213,000 in 2013. Last year’s main event was The Rock Vs. Cm Punk in their rematch for the WWE title. This year’s was Randy Orton (c) defeated John Cena, Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro and Christian.

Of course you are going to have a big fall off with the Rock not appearing and that is OK. However I want to see how WrestleMania did this year. If we can get that number I will post it here on the site.
