Early Word on the WWE Extreme Rules PPV Buyrate for Brock Lesnar’s Return

– WWE’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view with the return of Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena in the main event did just over 250,000 pay-per-view buys, based on early numbers.

They drew about 147,000 buys in North America and 104,000 outside of North America.

The 2011 Extreme Rules show did around 108,000 buys.


  • Jimbo

    It was a very good ppv.

  • SYM

    This would have been the Best PPV of the year if Kharma had returned & Lesnar had won. But I’m sticking with WrestleMania 28 as PPV of the Year.

  • Prince albert

    up 150%…nuff said

  • Chris

    Best PPV of the year for WWE maybe but not the best overall wrestling ppv of the year. TNA takes that for the May PPV. That was a 5 star PPV…

  • Mr. Wrestling

    So is that good? Give us numbers to compare it too next time.

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow

    Best PPV of the year, solid card all around. Brock’s return definitely boosted the buyrate up even though that figure is unofficial. This is why they really should save Lesnar/Triple for Summerslam.

  • Greg

    They paid Lesnars asking salary with this pay per view, now they got 15 more appearances to profit.
