WWE Money in the Bank 2013 PPV buyrate up from last year

The buyrate is in for the WWE "Money in the Bank 2013" pay-per-view (PPV) event that went down on July 14 and the show did better numbers this year than it did last year.

Money in the Bank has become the biggest "B" show on the WWE pay-per-view (PPV) schedule, with the company usually treating it like one of its bigger events. That seems obvious considering the show crowns two immediate contenders to both the WWE championship and the world heavyweight title.

That means big money at the box office, right?

Well, the buyrate is in for the event that took place back on July 14, 2013, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and, according to PW Insider, the show did 192,000 buys breaking down to 146,000 domestic and 46,000 international.

Here's how that compares to the past few years, with the main event of each show in parenthesis:

2013: 192,000 buys (WWE title MITB ladder match)
2012: 188,000 buys (WWE title MITB ladder match)
2011: 195,000 buys (John Cena vs. CM Punk)
2010: 165,000 buys (John Cena vs. Sheamus

So this year's number is up from last year but not by much, and down from two years ago, but not by much. As stated previously, this has become a marquee event that fans know will almost always deliver in action based almost solely on the two ladder matches.

This year's event saw Randy Orton win the WWE title ladder match and Damien Sandow win the world heavyweight title ladder match. Elsewhere on the card, John Cena and Mark Henry had a hell of a match while Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler did the same. Even Ryback vs. Chris Jericho was entertaining.

Surprised at the buyrate, Cagesiders? Or is it about in line with what you thought it would be?
