The SummerSlam number is up from this year’s Battleground PPV, which took in 99,000 buys , with 31,000 of them domestic and 68,000 of them international.

The SummerSlam number is also up from Money In the Bank this year, which took in 122,000 buys.

Comparatively, last year’s SummerSlam PPV took in around 298,000 buys – 186,000 domestic and 112,000 international.

Last year’s number was of course prior to the launch of the WWE Network, making this year’s 150,000 buys not too bad of a figure.
