Expectations weren’t good headed into the 2013 WWE Survivor Series due to the top matches on the card. The event was headlined by Randy Orton defending the WWE championship against Big Show. The co-feature had John Cena defending the World heavyweight championship against Alberto Del Rio.
Those expectations were spot on as WrestlingObserver.com is reporting that the preliminary buyrate for the event did 179,000 buys, which is down from last year. The 2012 edition of the show did 208,000 buys.
This year’s show did 95,000 buys domestically and 84,000 buys internationally.
