The WWE TLC pay-per-view will be free in the UK. That may be some sort of offshoot in the current negotiations between WWE and Sky regarding the network. The new contract with Sky stipulated that all of the pay-per-views would air on Sky Box Office, a pay-per-view channel, instead of Sky Sports. That doesn’t go into effect until next year.
Hell in a Cell, headlined by John Cena vs. Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins, did 21,000 buys on traditional pay-per-view domestically. The show did 56,000 buys internationally. It will be interesting to see how many people bought Survivor Series since it was offered for free.
