– Dave Meltzer stated on the December 24 edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that the Survivor Series pay-per-view buy figure is lower than the initial estimate of 280,000. It was reported that of that figure, 180,000 pay-per-view purchases came from the United States. The updated estimate drops the buy figure to 260,000 as only 160,000 pay-per-view purchases came from the United States for The Rock’s first wrestling match in over seven years.
The estimate compares to 244,000 buys for Survivor Series in 2010 and 235,000 in 2009, which nearly got the show scrapped from the annual pay-per-view line-up.
– Jim Ross commented on Chris Benoit’s candidacy for entrance into the WWE Hall of Fame.
“Chris Benoit will never be inducted into WWE HOF,” he tweeted Tuesday. “Great wrestler but horrific ending to his life overrides career.”
