WrestleMania 27 Reaches 1 Million Pay-Per-View Buys

While it might have been a dud to wrestling fans, WrestleMania 27 reached its goal of 1 million pay-per-view buys.

Last year’s WrestleMania scored 885,000 orders, which was down from 960,000 in 2009. According to World Wrestling Entertainment, pay-per-view buys are up 30 percent in North America and up 15 percent overseas. The final numbers are still being tallied.

With The Rock vs. John Cena already set as the main event for WrestleMania 28, the WWE can pencil in another 1 million pay-per-view buys for next year.
