This was posted on the UKFF by the ClassicsGuy, who said I could post them here too, very interesting figures:

 

Last four WWE ppvs shown live in England on Sky Sports 1 fared as follows:

 

No Way Out 2004 LIVE - 300,000 viewers.

Survivor Series 2003 LIVE - 220,000 viewers.

No Mercy 2003 LIVE- 170,000 viewers.

Unforgiven 2003 LIVE- Didn't make the top ten. REPEAT - 160,000 viewers.

 

Also, lets compare with previous Wrestlemanias - all of this data is from http://www.barb.co.uk:

 

WM20 (2004) LIVE - 450,000 viewers

WM19 (2003) LIVE - Didn't make the top ten.

WM18 (2002) LIVE - Didn't make the top ten.

WM17 (2001) LIVE- Didn't make the top ten. REPEAT - 230,000 viewers.

WM16 (2000) LIVE - 190,000 viewers

WM15 (1999) LIVE - Didn't make the top ten. REPEAT - 280,000 viewers.

 

450,000 LIVE - not bad at all! :xyx

Are the figures accurate? 450,000 is a HUGE live figure though.

 

I hope as rumored Sky don't start charging us for PPV's though. I cant imagine half that many people wanting to pay £15 everytime a PPV rolls around. I know I wont.

6 pounds off a tape trader anyone? :P

 

Seriously though, good figures... which doesn't surprise me considering so many people I knew that weren't even wrestling fans were watching it.

 

What can I say, there are a lot of drugs in Aberdeen. :)

I always find it strange how it always ends up as a perfect thousand figure :D Anyway thats good news for the WWE but surely they would have been expecting a higher figure than previous ppv's due to the magnitude of the event? Obviously not as much as they got, but they must have had some inkling?
