Recent WWE business figures for January 2012

WWE business notes for January 2012 courtesy of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

* 158,000 DVD units were shipped (down 16% from last year).

* Most shipped DVD titles include: Steve Austin (136,000 units) and Oh My God DVD (113,000 units). It is interesting to note that the Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart DVD was not listed among the top titles shipped since its release in late 2011 so it doesn’t appear to have been a big seller.

* averaged 12.0 million unique visitors (down 7% from last year).

* averaged 548 orders per day (down 19% from last year).
