They were pleased. WWE runs quite a few events throughout the year and some of them are among the biggest wrestling events anywhere. That means that some of the events that take place can matter quite a bit for WWE and having them be a success is quite the good situation. It seems to be the case again, as a WWE event was so solid that the company is bragging about it internally.
Last weekend, WWE presented its annual Money In The Bank event, featuring the show’s two namesake matches. However, according to Fightful Select, WWE was so pleased with the show that they sent out an internal statement to its executives, bragging about the show’s success. The memo bragged about the show being the most viewed Money In The Bank ever and the second highest gate in the show’s history. Also, merchandise sales at the event were up 95% over last year’s, which had been the highest merchandise sales in Money In The Bank history.
Opinion: This is one of those things that is worth bragging about as the show did better than last year’s edition. You don’t see something like that happening for them very often these days, but any improvement is better than nothing these days. I have no idea how long something like this is going to last, but at least WWE can brag about something for a little while.
What did you think of the show? How can WWE continue their momentum? Let us know in the comments below.
