Speaking of PPV success, there were a number of unexpectedly impressive shows scattered throughout the year.
Extreme Rules was certainly the biggest winner, increasing its buys on the 2011 show by over 25 percent and putting on one of the best wrestling shows of the year.
Other shows, including Night of Champions, Over the Limit and No Way Out, also improved upon past figures, with each show increasing its buys by at least 24,000.
It all made for an all-round successful year for the company, and though many will argue that buyrates aren’t the sole determinants of success, many of these PPVs also played host to some of the most dramatic matches of the year.
With the company’s flagship PPV improving and showing signs of repeating such success in 2013, in addition to the improvement to such aforementioned B-list shows, fans can be pleased with the company’s upturn in fortunes.
It makes for a very promising sight indeed regarding the WWE’s future.
