Chris Harrington, who is a regular publisher about specific WWE statistics and information, has a new article breaking down how many people signed up for the WWE Network yesterday. The following information is directly from their website, which can be viewed here.
"For a few hours when you ordered the WWE Network, you received a "confirmation email" from the WWE. Here's mine from 2:35 PM (Central Timezone)
This was very interesting as Ian Hamilton pointed out, it appeared they were giving out sequential numbers starting somewhere north of 11100000. By Tracking them, as David Bixenspan set out to do, we could informally track subscriptions leading into Wrestlemania…. That is, until WWE wised up to our scheme.
Basically, the first order we heard about was 8:12 AM EST (11187725) and the last order was 4:02 PM EST (11317813). So, our data suggests that over the course of about eight hours (8 AM-4 PM), there was more than 130,000 signups."
