WWE numbers for February 2009

Here are some WWE website figures for February:

As of the end of the month, merchandise orders online were down 14.6% from the first two months of last year.

DVD shipping was down 9.4%, which isn’t looked at as completely bad since the overall market has seen quite a drop.

There were 13.9 million visitors (believed to be uniques) to WWE.com in February, which is an increase from the last four months.

For January and February, WWE Shop averaged 627 orders per day. Last year was 756 per day and 2007 was 911 per day. The drop has been linked to the declines in the economy.
