WWE News: Why The Rock's Appearance at Survivor Series Will Help WrestleMania 28

Pavitar SidhuCorrespondent INovember 10, 2011

Many fans seem to be under the assumption that The Rock's match at Survivor Series will be taking too much away from his much-anticipated return to singles competition.

Rest assured, it will not.

For those of you who are unaware, tickets went on sale for WrestleMania 28 this past Sunday. It was quite the hour as several thousand fans flocked to the box office to purchase their tickets.

As a result, WWE was able to set a new first-day sales record with a gross of $6.3 million dollars. That's a huge leap up from the previous record of $4.8 million dollars.

WWE officials were obviously very pleased with the numbers. Stock investors were impressed, and many have begun speculating that WrestleMania 28 might get the highest buy rate in WWE PPV history.

The current buy rate record belongs to WrestleMania 23 with 1.2 million buys worldwide. The Rock's draw ability is obviously very high, and this proves it.

Even the announcement of The Rock's match at the upcoming Survivor Series did not stop fans from purchasing their tickets for WrestleMania 28.

You need to understand that regardless of what The Rock does prior to WrestleMania 28, many fans will be attending WrestleMania anyway.

WWE also knows that it does not matter what other matches are included on the WrestleMania 28 card, since The Rock vs. John Cena match alone is enough to sell out the entire arena and obtain close to a million PPV buys.

If you thought that by wrestling at Survivor Series, The Rock would be taking too much away from his WrestleMania 28 match against John Cena, then think again.

His appearance will help build the success of WWE since it will probably generate a very good buy rate for Survivor Series as well.
