WrestleMania 29 Price Increase To Result In Major Revenue, Original Plans For HHH-Lesnar

Posted by Matt Boone March 21, 2013 5 Comments

- Even if WrestleMania 29 doesn’t match the record-setting 2007 event of come even with WrestleMania 28, it will most likely set a new mark with overall pay-per-view revenue. WWE has increased the price of WrestleMania by $5 so it will be $59.95 for standard definition and $69.95 for HD this year. If the price increase doesn’t turn buyers away, it will lead to $3 million in extra revenue, based on 1.2 million worldwide buys, not including the increase in viewers who have moved to HD. Based on changes in annual trends, viewers moving to HD could add another $900,000 in profit.

– The No Holds Barred stipulation for Brock Lesnar and Triple H at WrestleMania 29 was decided on just a few days before RAW as several stipulations including Hell In a Cell were being considered. One idea discussed would have Shawn Michaels be in Triple H’s corner to counteract Paul Heyman being there.

      just go to whsports.net and watch wrestlemania there. That is where I go for my WWE and TNA PPVs. It is a lot cheaper on me that way and will be for you too. I think someone told people on here about it before too.

      Why not having Alistair Overeem un HHH’s corner? Overeem is the guy that terminated Lesnar’s carreer in UFC!!
