WWE’s fourth quarter 2013 and full year financial results can be downloaded via PDF at this link.

The report reveals one of the worst pay-per-view buy numbers in WWE history for the Battleground pay-per-view at 114,000 buys. The first Battleground pay-per-view featured Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton.

The results then show a strong 228,000 buys for the October Hell In a Cell pay-per-view, which featured Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton with Shawn Michaels as referee. That is up from the 199,000 in 2012.

The Survivor Series pay-per-view, with Big Show vs. Randy Orton, in November drew 177,000 buys, down from the 208,000 buys in 2012.

December’s TLC pay-per-view, with John Cena vs. Randy Orton, drew 181,000 pay-per-view buys, up just a bit from the 175,000 buys in 2012.

    “The report reveals one of the worst pay-per-view buy numbers in WWE history for the Battleground pay-per-view at 114,000 buys. The first Battleground pay-per-view featured Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton.” It’s Randy Orton’s fault, right guys? Right…?

      Nah, shitty booking in the build up and the fact that the PPV was only 3 weeks after Night of Champions is the primary thing to blame. This pairing’s NOC and HIAC numbers were alot better than this PPV for a reason and they outdrew TLC’s unification match for a reason.

    I knew survivor series would be low, especially with the Orton/BigShow being the “main event” and the way battleground ended in a dq, it deserves that honor of being the worst number wise
