Elimination Chamber Breaks Huge Records For WWE
Plenty of WWE records were smashed at Elimination Chamber, including ones specific for the signature show and for outside the “big five” premium live events.
WWE have confirmed in a press release that the 2023 Elimination Chamber did extremely good numbers for the company, including an over 50% increase in viewership on the previous year – which was an Elimination Chamber record in itself.
The event, which took place at the Bell Center in Montreal, also drew the largest gate both for an Elimination Chamber and for WWE events in the city.
The press release also discussed merchandise sale, which was another broken record for the show:
2023 Elimination Chamber broke the all-time event merchandise record and generated the highest-grossing Priority Pass fan experience packages for any non-”Big Five” premium live event through WWE’s partnership with On Location. Elimination Chamber sponsorship revenue was up nearly 300 percent versus 2022.
In a statistic which is interesting even if not a huge shock, social media content featuring Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn, who competed in a heated main event for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, picked up nearly 20 million views across all of the company’s social media platforms.
The story of Sami Zayn finally standing up to The Bloodline had been a long time coming, but now attention turns to what he will be doing at WrestleMania after he came face to face with Kevin Owens on the most recent edition of Monday Night Raw.
