PPV Buyrates, All Stars Release Date, New SmackDown Team


– The new WWE‘s All-Stars video game has been given an official release date of March 29th, 2011.

– Preliminary pay-per-view buyrate information is in for October’s WWE events, Hell In A Cell and Bragging Rights.

Hell in a Cell sold just over 200,000 buys while Bragging Rights did under 150,000 buys. While WWE‘s international business remains healthy, domestic buys were way down and only accounted for around 53% of the buys.

It’s worth noting that Bragging Rights had stiff competition on pay-per-view that weekend, with UFC 121 taking place featuring Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez.

– Following the recent WWE releases of Vance Archer and Caylen Croft, there has been talk of putting their respective tag parters Curt Hawkins and Trent Baretta together as team.
