You can get the press release here.

Bottom line is they were almost even from this quarter last year, dropping just $0.2 mil.

They trumpet the success of ECW - probably wasn't a concidence they got a deal done last night - and note that they're signed thru the year.

Selected highlights
- They got $0.2 revenue from ECW house shows, and $0.3 from international house shows (just two sold shows in Central America), down from $5.7 this time last year.
- So how'd they still post a good number? DVDs - up $6 mil, approxmentaly 1.1mil DVDs sold this quarter.
- They hadn't released the PPV buy rates in quite some time. They're fairly close to last year, with this year's ONS a slightly bigger success. If UFC was actually getting the buy rate numbers people have been suggesting, then they were getting 2 or 3 times the people watching their PPV events somewhere along here. It's not really close.
- still no info on how much they're actually going to end up making on See No Evil. It's not new, but always interesting to note this comparision

$ spent on film production: $12.6mil
$ spent on buying wrestling tape libaries: $1.5mil

The quarterly confrence call is at 10 am, so if you want to be shocked/amazed/upset that they don't answer any real questions this time either, I guess you need to get to dialing.
