WWE announced that pay-per-view revenues were $14.6 million for the three events held in the third quarter of 2013. That number is down from the $16.3 million earned for the three pay-per-view events held in the third quarter of 2012, and the $15.8 million the company made for the same quarter of 2011.

-July's Money in the Bank pay-per-view earned 199,000 buys, up from the 188,000 buys the event drew in 2012. The event drew 195,000 buys in 2011, 165,000 buys in 2010, and 267,000 buys when Night of Champions was held in July 2009.

-The August SummerSlam did 296,000 buys, down from 358,000 buys in 2012. The same event drew 296,000 buys in 2011, 350,000 buys in 2010, and 369,000 buys in 2009.

-September's Night of Champions pay-per-view produced 175,000 buys, down from 189,000 buys in 2012. The event scored 161,000 buy in 2011, 165,000 buys in 2010. The Breaking Point pay-per-view was held in September of 2009 and did 169,000 buys.

Powell's POV: The Money in the Bank event show was headlined by John Cena vs. Mark Henry and the two MITB matches. SummerSlam featured John Cena vs. Daniel Bryan in the main event. The Night of Champions show was topped by Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship.
