I do believe the Network, NXT and the amount of WWE content in general has increased the very hardcore fan base in recent years and that, coupled with the ease and affordability of travel nowadays allows them to pull in close to 100K fans for Mania etc - but this of course is not representative of the fan base as a whole. Yes they have expanded more internationally (though still with only 24% of revenue coming from outside North America), yes they have 1.5m Network subscribers and yes we do need to account for the increased popularity of other streaming channels for casual fans (most notably the WWE Youtube Channel) in weighing all of this up. However, I dare say it looks like they may now back to at least 1997 levels (post mid nineties dark ages but very much prior to the attitude era boom) in terms of regular viewership worldwide?
