The numbers are Up:


According to the latest numbers released to WWE stockholders, the 2011 Money in the Bank pay-per-view with John Cena vs. CM Punk in Chicago did over 265,000 worldwide buys. This is up over 100,000 pay-per-view buys from the first Money in the Bank pay-per-view, which did 165,000 worldwide buys.

The increase can be attributed to the hot CM Punk angle and the match against John Cena.

The 2011 Money in the Bank buyrate is WWE’s best this year besides WrestleMania 27 and the Royal Rumble.


What do you guys think? Expected more or what?

I didn't. I predicted it would be around 260,000, and at the highest, 300,000. Some were saying that this would be one of their new "Big 4" PPVs, and get a buyrate of 400,000. It was a great PPV, arguably the best one this year for the WWE, but you can't expect a relatively new PPV to automatically have so many buys. But I think next year the buyrate will be even higher, assuming that the WWE continues putting so much effort into it.

These are good numbers IMO, sure could be highter, but let's not forget that MITB is 2011 Best PPV so far, when it comes to matches, environment, hype and...Delivery.

No argument there. It seems toe me that the crowd plays a big part in determing how good the PPV is. If they're screaming their lungs out, you know its a great PPV! Thats exactly for Chicago did for MITB. I love that crowd.

And that like in any kind of Sport, motivates the players/wrestlers and eventually, they deliver. Chicago was insane from the start of the show, and when the main event match was close and close, they were going even wild :D Great moment...

not surprised it isnt 1 of the big 4 so it was always going to get between 100,000 - 300,000

Simple put, the reason why people got the PPV was Punk and him leaving, when he announced he was not going to be next Monday and it was confirmed, well The rating stood the same. Same happened next week, even when Punk got back but it was completely unadvertised so you can't expect someone to generate numbers if you don't announce him and him being there for like 3 minutes.

I don't see how that is possible after the very low buy rates of the past PPVs. No knocking on you, how many did you expect? I mean just to have a number in mind.

Brilliant PPV but the numbers sound about right for one of their usual lesser PPV's. It did really well

Got over 100k more than last year's, and from the trend the PPVs were having (100k, less than 100k) it was a very nice bounce IMO.

I know the "Big 4" are presumed to get the most buys. Buy why Survivor Series? Its sucked for a long time, and I don't see why people would buy that PPV just because of it's name rather than a fantastic PPV in MITB.

The buyrate numbers originally released had the 2011 Money in the Bank PPV bringing in 265,000 buys. However, a new breakdown in the estimates lists the July PPV at bringing in just 185,000 buys.

The other buys incorporated into the graph are now being credited to WrestleMania XXVII purchases that came in after the last key indicator was published.

Hey hey hey.

Holla

Well, still more than last year and way more than the previous PPV, not to be calling a conspiracy here(R-TRUTH WAS RIGHT!!!) but how freaking inaccurate can this crap be? I mean, how come form 265,000 to 185, 000 and call that Wrestlemania got like 80,000 more and they were just delayed? I mean, shouldn't that also be considered for the previous PPVs?

So they are going to say that Over The limit rally got like 99k? from what they are saying the could have been only 50k and the rest could have been Wrestlemania.

On a side note, damn, for an average Wrestlemania, if this is true the event really got a lot of buys, Damn Rock seriously was a purchase magnet.
