Thats awesome news. I dont think many would have predicted them getting into the 1 million range. You could sense a chance in the mood of the fans when the Rock came back. He seemed to get tongues wagging and people talking again. Next year could break records if they build that match up right. WrestleMania 28 is going to be a big one. They should pack that show with all kinds of big stars from the Attitude era, since that audience seemed to have returned for a few weeks. WrestleMania next year looks awesome already.

It'll be fantastic news if they've manged to hit the magic million. It's a shame that the card itself didn't live up to its full potential, yet it's always good to hear the Mania buyrate doing well. The Elimination Chamber buyrate fell below expectations, so it'll be nice to see a healthy Mania number.

Here's some additional info (via PWInsider):

 

The return of Dwayne Johnson and the decision to use Jersey Shore star Snooki paid off big-time for WWE as Variety is reporting that the company's flagship PPV scored one million buys.

 

Final numbers are not yet in, but the trade publication noted that buys are up 30% in North America and up to 15% overseas, according to the company.

 

Wrestlemania 26, featuring Shawn Michaels' retirement, generated 885,000 orders.

 

Wrestlemania 25, headlined by Randy Orton vs. Triple H and the first Undertaker vs. Michaels classic, scored 960,000 buys.

 

The Variety piece also credited WWE's marketing leading into the PPV as a factor, as the company smartly had their performers all over different television show for appearances, ranging from talk shows to the "Cake Boss" reality show.
