– With ROH Best In The World PPV being a great show, people want to know how they did and how many PPV buy-rates they did. According to the observer, ROH did around 10,000 buys. This is the number that the company said they would need to break even back when the PPV was announced in May.
Not bad for a few weeks of build up and if you think about it, they did around what TNA does when they run their PPV’s
ROH is backed by sinclair broadcasting with a TV network that has some networks in most of the 50 states.
