WWE Worried About WrestleMania 25, Update on Candice’s Return

Posted by Marc Middleton in WWE News
Thursday, March 19th, 2009

should be cleared to return to the ring as of today. The former WWE Women’s Champion had a 3/18 date listed by her name on the Raw script sheet leaked two weeks ago, which indicates the day she was set to be cleared from her injury. She is advertised to take part in the 25-Diva Battle Royal at XXV, so her return to the ring is in the works.

– Internally, no one has any confidence that WrestleMania will do a buyrate anywhere close to the past two events. Most company officials predict the show doing somewhere in the 500k range, which would be the lowest since WrestleMania XIX in 2003. If the “25th Anniversary of WrestleMania” experiences the same percentage drop as the did (23 percent), the number would be around 800,000 buys. However, it would cost the company approximately $4,000,000 as compared to last year, and will more than likely lead to more cost-cutting measures from the company. So much of the company’s financials are tied into the revenue that WrestleMania produces, so a number of jobs are on the line with this year’s event.

WWE will be releasing their 1st quarter report featuring the numbers from WrestleMania in May, so that’s when you can probably expect another storm of company layoffs to hit providing things don’t turn around creatively within the next few weeks.

    Then why the hell would they put The Big Show in a world title match if they were concerned about buy rates?
