Vince on WWE Studios’ Future, Update on NXT and Superstars, Official PPV Numbers

– WWE revealed during today’s shareholders call that WrestleMania 27 had 65,000 “incremental buys” added in the third quarter, which helped pay-per-view revenue. Here are official pay-per-view numbers from the third quarter:

* Money in the Bank – 195,000 buys, up from 165,000 in 2010

* SummerSlam – 296,000 buys, down from 350,000 in 2010

* Night of Champions – 161,000 buys, down from 165,000 in 2010

– WWE Studios will be releasing the final three movies that were part of the new business model over the next six months. Regarding the future of WWE Studios, Vince McMahon said during today’s conference call that “there is an adjustment and an ongoing evaluation with this category.”

– WWE is not planning on adding NXT and Superstars back to their TV line-up before the year is over, despite rumors earlier this year. WWE has lost $9 million in TV rights revenue this year due to not having the shows on TV for months.

    Summer Slam was a good ppv. But the only hype was the rematch of Punk and Cena. It was like they ignored the other matches. The ppv only had 6 matches and one was added in at the last seond. Same thing happened with Night of the Champions. They did a bad job hyping those ppvs, but they were still good.

    I am glad to see MITB did well, and I am not surprised by Summerslam, huge disappointment.
