• Controversial Hell In A Cell 2019 Finish Actually Helped PPV Buys
According to the Wrestling Observer, the controversial finish to Hell In A Cell 2019 main event between Seth Rollins and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship actually helped the late PPV buy numbers:
“Hell in a Cell is currently estimated at 14,100 buys, up from 12,500 one week ago. So that’s 1,600 buys after midweek.
One would think all the negativity would have killed late buys, but the number of late buys was actually a little better than usual.”
If you are confused as to why WWE is drawing such a low number of PPV buys, it’s because over 1.5 million fans watch the PPVs on the WWE Network for only $9.99.
