Royal Rumble PPV Buys

The 2012 Royal Rumble pay-per-view did approximately 438,000 buys. This early number is down from the 2011 Royal Rumble's 446,000 buys.

Based on the early numbers, it is believed the 2012 Rumble did around 272,000 buys in North America and 166,000 internationally.

Mysterio/WrestleMania

InDemand has released a promo for WWE's WrestleMania 28 pay-per-view and it advertised the injured Rey Mysterio:

"Witness the once in a lifetime collision of The Rock and John Cena as they face off on the grandest stage of them all. Welcome to WrestleMania, the most anticipated event in WWE history! Don't miss Undertaker, Triple H, Kane, Rey Mysterio, CM Punk and all your favorite WWE Superstars at WrestleMania, Sunday, April 1 at 7pm ET/4pm PT, live on Pay-Per-View."

This past Tuesday, I talked about what I thought and was hearing in terms of Rey Mysterio appearing at WrestleMania 28 on TribLIVE Radio in the second hour (part 2) of "Wrestling Reality." Click here to listen.
