WWE News: Pay-per-view buy totals for SummerSlam, Money in the Bank, Night of Champions
Nov 1, 2012 - 08:43 AM


By Jason Powell

WWE announced that pay-per-view revenues were $16.3 million for the three events held in the third quarter of 2012. That number compares to the $15.8 million earned for the three pay-per-view events held in the third quarter of 2011, and the $13.6 million the company made for the same quarter of 2010, and $14.5 million in the same quarter of 2009.

-July's Money in the Bank pay-per-view earned 188,000 buys, down from the 195,000 buys the event drew in 2011. The show drew 165,000 buys in 2010, and 267,000 buys when Night of Champions was held in July 2009.

-The August SummerSlam event did 358,000 buys. The show drew 296,000 buys in 2011, 350,000 buys in 2010, and 369,000 buys in 2009.

-September's Night of Champions pay-per-view produced 189,000 buys. The event scored 161,000 buy in 2011, 165,000 buys in 2010. The Breaking Point pay-per-view was held in September of 2009 and did 169,000 buys.

Powell's POV: The pay-per-view numbers were up for two of the three events compared to the same three events in 2011. Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H headlined the SummerSlam show that saw an impressive increase. The Night of Champions event features C.M. Punk vs. John Cena in the top spot and also increased. The Money in the Bank pay-per-view was down. That show was built around the C.M. Punk vs. Daniel Bryan match with A.J. as special referee.
