Preliminary Wrestlemania 29 Buyrate good but not great: WWE Wrestlemania 29 drew a preliminary Buyrate of 1,048,000 buys, which is obviously not a bad number, but is below expectations and below the previous two years. WWE see anything past a million as acceptable, but always tend to project higher. Punk back for Payback?: Although several dates have been thrown around and constant changes to event schedules have confused the matter, it’s believed the current plan is for CM Punk to return during June’s Payback PPV, though this may not be a full time deal. In the latest WWE magazine they tease that he’ll be back for the PPV… “No one else has made the most of a hometown crowd than CM Punk. WWE Payback hails from Chi-Town, and if the moments below are any indication, it’s going to be another big night for him.” Impact audience jumps: This week’s episode of TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV drew an average audience of 1,379,000 viewers, up considerably from the previous week’s 1,050,000 number. It seems the NBA has affected them in recent weeks. Hitman appreciation night on WWE App: Monday’s Bret Hart Appreciation night celebration will be streamed on the WWE App following the usual RAW broadcast. As previously noted Canadians will get to see the extra footage on theScore.
