Reaction to WWE’s Network Subscribers Announcement, What Number Was Considered Bad?

– As noted, WWE announced 667,287 subscribers for the WWE Network on the day after WrestleMania XXX.

It was reported a week before that number came out that the investment community was going to be satisfied with 1 million subscribers but analysts were predicting a lot more. There was a feeling that any number below 850,000 wouldn’t be a good sign, but would be workable. The investment community is expecting more growth over the years, with the idea that whatever was announced would be three or four times that within a few years. It was said that any number under 650,000 would not be good.

The 667,287 number was not seen as a failure but was a major disappointment to both Wall Street and to those in the company.

    So, an additional $6.7 million a month in automatic revenue is a bad thing, huh?

    Those numbers will rise when they open it up to the rest of the world. Still waiting in Canada.

    This is how I watch their ” special events ” going foward and love the old PPV sections. I didn’t let Raw stop me from purchasing this at all.

    Well you revealed it when WWE in a bad spotlight. With the CM Punk insident and the whole Danial Bryan crushed OVER and OVER and OVER boring events. Its just bad choices that WWE was making and pissing off fans. Then to say “hey you know this product that you get for free and can rewatch on youtube later. well now we made that harder for you to do that without paying us $10 a month for at least 6 months, at least we give you interviews as well”
