Some updated figures regarding early buyrate information for WWE’s SummerSlam PPV on 8/17/14 (headlined by John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar) is now available. The early figure has the show drawing 145,000 buys worldwide through traditional PPV outlets. This is broken down as 63,000 domestic and 82,000 international. This was the first PPV provided from WWE since the WWE Network was made available in 170 countries.
As with all events going forward, these figures only factor in those buying the traditional PPV version of the show and not numbers part of the WWE Network.
