Dave Meltzer Says Having Two PPVs A Month Hasn’t Helped WWE Network Subscriber Number

During a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer had the following to say regarding WWE trying to cut costs to increase profit and WWE officials not being satisfied with WWE Network subscriber number:

“So last year’s profits were about $30 million. And this year we’re about halfway through and — I don’t have the exact numbers in front of me – but it’s like five or six million, which means there’s a lot of catching up to do. They’re not in any financial trouble but the Network subscriber number is a genuine disappointment. The growth coming out of WrestleMania that would have been expected wasn’t there. The one thing that we have learned is that the two pay-per-views a month, that has not helped. The Network number is not growing the way they expected it to so that’s been a bad situation. But I don’t think they want to drop one of the pay-per-views because I think that would hurt ratings a little bit.”
