A Mind Boggling PPV Number, RAW Rating Delayed, Moolah

Ryan Clark


Here are some numbers to munch on. The Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather fight back on 5/5 did 2.4 million domestic PPV buys and $134.4 million. Additionally, the fight did a live gate of $18,419,200. If you figure in closed circuit, rights fees paid by sports bars and restaurants, merchandise, and TV rights, the show is estimated at having grossed $165 million.

The cable ratings for Monday night will not be released until tomorrow morning. There was an issue at Neilson Media.

The possible cause of death for Fabulous Moolah was a heart attack or blood clot related to recent shoulder replacement surgery according to her daughter Mary Austin.

Thanks to all the people who sent word about WWEShop.com selling a SAVE_US_222 t-shirt. Anything to make a buck I guess.

The interview with Alex Shelley that I noted in the last post is actually at Marvel.com, not Mavel.com as I originally reported.
