The numbers don’t lie. Last weekend, WWE presented its annual Survivor Series event, though this year’s edition was more than a little different. Instead of the usual elimination matches, WWE centered the show around a pair of WarGames matches, with the men and women both getting a chance. That is quite the twist, but things seem to have gone well, at least based on the numbers.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed some of the business numbers for this year’s Survivor Series. The majority of these are positive and look at the amount of interest fans had in the show. Here are some highlights:
• There were 13,068 tickets out with 12,600 paid, for a gate of over $1 million.
• There were about 200,000 Google searches, or about the same as most WWE “B” premium live events.
• There were about 8,700 traditional pay per view buys, up about 24% from WWE Crown Jewel earlier in the month.
The show was worth a look. Check out some of its better moments:
Opinion: This is the kind of look at a show that you do not get to see very often but it does tell you a few things about what happened. WWE did manage to get some attention on its show, which is rather hard when there wasn’t much on the line. Hopefully WWE can grow the concept next year, as WarGames being the focal point of the show was a good idea, especially compared to the Battle For Brand Supremacy years.
