While the following figure is an early trending number, and the final buyrate information has yet to be released, WWE’s Over The Limit PPV, based on trending figures and actual cable reports, took in about 65,000 domestic buys, making it the lowest bought PPV event in The U.S. since 2005′s "December to Dismember" event.

The "December to Dismember" PPV, which was an all ECW themed show, took in 55,000 domestic buys, which is the lowest buyrate in company history. As usual with early estimates, the final number will likely be slightly higher, but this early figure gives a good idea of how poor the show drew this year. The PPV was headlined by John Cena vs The Miz and Randy Orton vs Christian.
