Here is an interesting and rather telling stat. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that UFC 100 in North America looks to have done slightly more buys than a combined total of all seven WWE PPV events of the first six months of 2009, including the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 25. UFC 100 and UFC 101 combined will likely end up doing only slightly less than all 14 WWE PPV events in 2009. Involving TNA PPV events is even more telling as UFC 100 should to a little better than the next six years of TNA PPV events. That is of course providing that TNA maintains its normal average of 20,000 buys per show with some being a little higher and lower. To show the comparison, TNA ratings for Impact are at the same level as UFC’s Ultimate Fighter and live event specials if not higher some times. Yet when you look at PPV buyrate business it is literally night and day.
