– WWE shipped 211,000 DVD units in January and February combined, which is down from 724,000 for the two month period last year.

– WWE’s tour of Abu Dhabi drew 14,200 total fans, that only 5,100 of them were paid. This is down from than 15,000 paid for the prior tour. The reason for this is because there was a big decline in public demand in that specific market for the product after the successful first tour where they charged the highest ticket prices anywhere in the world.
– WWE Shop was doing 1,357 orders per day this year, up 63% from the 831 last year.
