Bad PPV News on WWE’s Cyber Sunday, No Mercy News

– WWE’s Cyber Sunday 2008 pay-per-view this year from Phoenix, AZ featuring Batista vs. Chris Jericho with Steve Austin as referee has done a total of 162,000 buys based on WWE’s early estimates. The show only did 102,000 North American buys which would make it the third lowest in WWE history, right behind the infamous December to Dismember event and another show in 1996. Last year’s Cyber Sunday did 194,000 buys with Undertaker vs. Batista as the main event with Steve Austin as referee.

This year’s No Mercy pay-per-view featuring Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho in a Ladder match did 238,000 total buys and 150,000 in North America, which is pretty good for an event considered on the “B level.” This is down from the 2007 No Mercy that did 271,000 buys on a show where an injured John Cena vacated the WWE Title just a week before on RAW.

    WWE should consider dropping the price of their PPVs to $29.95, especially for the PPVs other than WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble. Paying $40 for a “B-level” PPV is simply absurd. The 25% price reduction should produce more than 25% buys, so I think it would be worth it in the end.
