I checked out the WWE's Investor Relations site tonight, and the Key Business Drivers document has been updated with PPV buy information for Vengeance.

I guess stacking the card worked, because it did north of 300,000 buys (probably between 315,000 & 325,000). That's more than ANY brand-only PPV since 2003's Unforgiven.

Comparing Fiscal 2006 (so far) to Fiscal 2005:

-Backlash 2005 did slightly less than Backlash 2004 (which counted in Fiscal 2004 since it took place during April)
-Judgment Day 2005 did slightly less than Judgment Day 2004, and will probably end up doing about the same after revisions.
-ECW One Night Stand did slightly less than Bad Blood 2004, and will end up doing about the same after revisions.
-Vengeance 2005 did significantly more than Great American Bash 2004.
-Overall, Vengeance's higher numbers pretty much made up for the other PPVs doing slightly less (or about the same) as last year, so the company is pretty damn close to making money so far this fiscal year.

so how many buys did the ECW show get? I never did see a hard number for that anywhere.

I'm think there is something fishy going on with the ECW numbers and that they should be way higher then they are saying (about 275,000 at the moment i think). Maybe down the line they may be much higher and WWE may say 'they made a mistake' with estimates.

It may go up, but it'd be not so good for a public company to be misleading invenstors about it's business. There's little chance they're making up the numbers to spite ECW or something.

The PPV buy rates, as well as ratings figures, can be found on the corporate.wwe.com website, listed under Key Business Drivers.

A PPV featuring a brand that hadn't been on PPV since 2001, featuring wrestlers that (for the most part) hadn't been on PPV since 2001, and even then didn't draw nearly as much as they did for One Night Stand?

If you compare One Night Stand to other ECW PPVs, they did AMAZINGLY WELL. If you compare One Night Stand to other WWE PPVs, they did about average, and better than most Smackdown PPVs of the JBL era.

If anything, I think the ECW PPV at least had a significantly higher online buyrate than any other WWE PPV. I remember trying to watch it that way, and their servers were just getting hammered.

Hardcore Homecoming wasn't a PPV. It was filmed for DVD.

Well, firstly, ECW never had the kind of exposure that WWE gave them in advertising before the PPV so hat explains why it was higher then they ever had before and from the way it was hyped for months on the net you'd expect it to be higher then normal which it was for a normal PPV. I read reviews all over the place from people who said this was their first PPV in years and others saying they only buy WM, bought this. This is just from my obervation and maybe they casual fan just didn't bother with it but in my opinion it was a hit with hardcore and lost fans from the past.
