WWE @WWE breaks all-time Survivor Series records for viewership, gate and merchandise sales

STAMFORD, Conn., November 28, 2023 –

WWE announced that Survivor Series, which emanated from Allstate Arena in Chicago, set new records for the highest viewership, largest gate and best merchandise sales in the event’s 37-year history.

Viewership for Survivor Series was up 44 percent versus the previous record set in 2022. With 17,138 in attendance, the event broke the previous Survivor Series gate record set in Brooklyn in 2021.

In partnership with Fanatics, Survivor Series broke the premium live event’s all-time merchandise record. Sponsorship revenue was up 24 percent versus 2022.

In addition, the surprise return of CM Punk after nearly a decade away from WWE further drove massive digital engagement. Punk’s comeback moment has more than 71 million views across all platforms, making it the most social post in company history.

Wrestler CM Punk's return helps WWE crush social media record - Novemeber 28, 2023

WWE crushed its social media record over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, with the return of wrestler CM Punk at Survivor Series garnering more than 71 million views across all of the sports entertainment company's platforms.

Survivor Series, a premium live event that's been held for 37 years, took place at the Allstate Arena in Chicago on Saturday. While WWE's fervent fans had been talking about the possibility of CM Punk returning to the organization for weeks, his appearance at the WWE event after nearly a decade away from the company surprised nearly everyone, and many took to social media to talk about it.

WWE said Tuesday that the comeback moment has more than 71 million views across all platforms, making it the biggest social post in company history. The previous record was a handheld video last year from Logan Paul as he jumped from the ropes during a match. That video garnered more than 40 million views across Paul's and WWE's social platforms in less than 24 hours.

WWE, which is part of TKO Group Holdings, said that Survivor Series' sponsorship revenue climbed 24% from a year earlier. Viewership increased 44%, eclipsing the record set last year. There were 17,138 people in attendance for the event, breaking the record set in Brooklyn in 2021.

Earlier this month, WWE announced that it is collaborating with the Big 12 for the conference's championship game Saturday as the company further strengthens ties with outside sports organizations.

As part of the partnership, the game's most outstanding player will receive a custom-made WWE championship title belt, and a co-branded WWE X Big 12 logo will appear throughout the stadium and on the field. The Big 12 Conference and WWE will also collaborate on a Big 12 championship merchandise line, which will be available online and at the stadium's team stores.

The Dr. Pepper Big 12 championship will be held Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Pro Wrestling Ratings

WWE @WWE RAW by the Numbers

Peak viewership for WWE RAW

Opening segment between Randy Orton and Rhea Ripley (of Judgement Day)
2,058,000 viewers (commercial-free hour)

CM Punk in-ring promo at the conclusion of the red hot pro wrestling aka sports entertainment themed show. Witnessed 1,768,000 viewers tune in.

WWE lead announcer Michael Cole @MichaelCole is blessed to have so much great talent and stories to work with at present. After decades behind the mic Cole is finally getting more credit to the great job he does every week, some in front of camera, and some behind the scenes.

At the very end of Punk's promo his last words were "I'm not here to make friends. I'm here to make money".

That quote can be taken with a viewers/readers own interpretation ala "interpretative art", as wrestling legend John Cena calls his Instagram posts! Needless to say that WWE's social media accounts have been on fire since Survivor Series with the WWE putting the news into the public domain. The news summary can be located on the WWE website in the news section.

Media Man: Pro wrestling history shows us that reality based interviews, promos, feuds and the like more often than not are the most successful for ratings, buzz, attracting new viewers, fighting for eyeballs, merch and so on. So far it appears that WWE has hit a home-run with CM Punk. At this rate more record breaking numbers are likely on the way. It sure feels like WrestleMania @WrestleMania Season has arrived early.

UFC champ Sean Strickland holds alleged domestic violence suspect at gun point

UFC @UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland has held an alleged perpetrator at gun point after he attempted to hide out at his house.

An alleged domestic violence perpetrator picked the wrong home at which to try to hide out.

UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland posted a video on his Instagram page in which the alleged suspect sought to hide out at his house after apparently trying to outrun club security — and Strickland held the man at gunpoint, the NY Post reports.

“Here’s what I know….,” Strickland’s explanation of the event began.

“The guy was drunk stomping out a girl, a security guard seen it, he jumped in his car and drove off. Security followed him, hit a curb, completely shredded his tire, drove on the rim for awhile then jumped out and tried to hide at my house. I initially thought he was stealing my car..”

Strickland added that the suspect was arrested.

It’s unclear where the incident took place.

In a major upset at UFC 293 in September, Strickland defeated Israel Adesanya via decision to become the promotion’s middleweight champion.

Dana White immediately announced after the fight that Strickland and Adesanya would have a rematch.

In his professional MMA career, which began in 2008, Strickland has a 28-5 record.

Believe it or not, Strickland is not the first UFC fighter to point a gun at an alleged home intruder, as Jon Jones chased an alleged attempted car thief away from his home with a shotgun in 2020.

Last year, UFC welterweight fighter Kevin Holland spoke to The Post about thwarting a gunman at a sushi restaurant in Houston.

Holland said that he initially thought the gunshot was a champagne pop.

“As I go to turn around and look, I see one of the employees and some other people running with a look of biblical fear on their face,” Holland said.

“And as they’re running, I call my uncle Patrick Robinson and pulled him down. People were running everywhere. I looked over on the right side of the bar and noticed two guys wrestling with a gun.

“Then I get up, start running that way. I picked up a chair. I was going to smack the guy with a chair but I couldn’t see exactly which person it was. I put the chair down, and realised the person on the bottom was the shooter. I helped the guy pull the gun free, and pulled the guy back into my lap, hit him with a rear-naked choke, and choked him to sleep.”

Financial Review remains Australia’s most-read premium business title

The Australian Financial Review is the country’s most read premium business masthead, with a cross-platform readership of 3.4 million people, according to Total News readership figures released by Roy Morgan on Monday.

In the last four weeks, 1.1 million people read a print edition of the Financial Review, with the masthead holding steady year-on-year after experiencing four consecutive quarters of growth. Meanwhile, The Australian has dropped 16 per cent for the same period.

The Monday-to-Friday print edition recorded massive annual growth of 31 per cent year-on-year, for an average issue readership of 244,000, while the AFR Weekend Saturday print edition has a readership of 190,000, posting annual growth of 35 per cent.

Highlighting the strength of the Financial Review’s digital offering, nearly 75 per cent of AFR readers – 2.1 million people – engage with the masthead’s online publication. This puts the publication third behind only The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

The Australian Financial Review Magazine continues to dominate Australia’s monthly magazine insert figures, with a print readership of 498,000, which has seen quarterly growth of 1 per cent – its fourth consecutive quarter of growth – and annual growth of 22 per cent. This is the highest quarterly growth result since December 2018.

Nine’s Total Publishing assets reach a de-duplicated audience of 16.3 million Australians across print and digital.

Financial Review editor-in-chief Michael Stutchbury said the quarterly growth in the masthead’s total readership matched the new benchmarks being hit for the masthead’s retail subscriptions and the exceptional growth in its number of corporate subscribers.

“This is all driven by the exceptional journalism of the Financial Review newsroom, highlighted by last week’s Gold Walkley award for Neil Chenoweth and Edmund Tadros for their PwC investigation over the past year,” Stutchbury said.

The Total News readership figures are produced by Roy Morgan for ThinkNewsBrands.

VIX drop: stocks collapse or boring growth ahead?

Financial market volatility has plunged to its lowest level in almost four years, according to the VIX index. This so-called "fear index" fell to 12.45 on Friday, the lowest level since January 2020. Such low levels could be both a sign of the market entering a smooth bullish trend or a lull before a sharp decline.

Low VIX values indicate weak expected market volatility in the coming months.

Sometimes, such market signals should be perceived as overconfidence by investors. And then, the calm is followed by a storm wave, knocking down everything in its path. The peak of overconfidence is usually followed by bitter disappointment in the form of a painful sell-off in stocks.

This can be a period of quiet growth in stocks. And while bears should be prepared for a reversal in stocks, they should not be in a hurry to make a quick bet on it because a rally in stocks can take an indefinitely long time while the VIX is at such low levels.

The VIX has spent most of June and July this year in the range between 13 and 14, and the S&P500 has added nearly 7.5% during that time. The S&P500 gained twice as much between October 2019 and January 2020, when we saw similar or lower VIX levels. Moreover, the VIX spent all of 2017 and early 2018 mostly below 12, dipping to 9.5 at times, and this was also a period of smooth, persistent 27% gains for the S&P500.

Thus, stocks are now close to a point where there could be both a painful switch into risk-off mode and the start of a long and boring uptrend for speculators.

In the short term, we see more bearish signals for the market as the last upside momentum in equities was extremely sharp. It looks like the market driver was closing shorts rather than building long positions. A similar amplitude rally in equities has been a sign of a reversal to growth in recent years with monetary easing, but now the pause is more of what the markets are hoping for, but the Fed is not confirming those hopes.

Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton connection

"At the end of the match, Randy said to me, 'Thanks for the phone call.' And I wanted to tell him 'Thanks for my career.' I keep thinking this is going to end and I couldn't have gotten to where I got had I not been around Randy. Randy is so wild and chaotic and you hear all these funny stories about him and all this nonsense, but as a performer, a professional wrestler, WWE superstar. What an outstanding mentor he was to me truly.

I'll never forget standing in the ring at the Royal Rumble when he won, pointing at the star WrestleMania sign and just thinking, 'I want to be like him.' That's [as] nice as I'm gonna get about [him]. I was really touched.

"I think a lot of emotions tonight because my father-in-law, he's in the hospital. Michael Cole shouted him out on commentary, I really appreciate that. Otis has been the biggest fan. We love Otis and I want him to get better and all those things.

So I was thinking about that. I was thinking about Randy and of course, cage opens up and I walk out. For the first time in the day, everyone else is thinking, for the first time in the day I think 'Ah, this is my dad's match.' Charmed life you guys have given me. I'm very lucky."

Punk certainly brings the X factor, numbers, eyeballs etc. Our CM Punk dream matches posts continue to go up via X. The gist that keeps on giving you may say. "The Wiseman" link and up and coming angle has been noted. More records likely to tumble when Punk faces Rollins, and most likely and finally, Roman Reigns. WrestleMania Season is starting early thanks to a kick-start with Punk. Great teamwork all, with specially mention to Triple H and Nick Khan. Need to know basis : )

Casino And Sports Connection

Las Vegas and Texas connection

Miriam Adelson buys $2 billion stake in NBA Dallas Mavericks

Las Vegas Sands casino controlling shareholder Miriam Adelson is reportedly selling a $2 billion stake in the company to buy the Dallas Mavericks NBA franchise, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"We have been advised by the selling stockholders that they currently intend to use the net proceeds from this offering, along with additional cash on hand, to fund the purchase of a majority interest in a professional sports franchise pursuant to a binding purchase agreement, subject to customary league approvals," the Sands said in the filing.

While the SEC filing did not name the Mavericks as the purchase target, Sportico reported the Adelson family was buying a majority stake in the team but that owner Mark Cuban would continue to retain operational control of it. The Dallas Morning News also reported the story.

The stock sale will reduce Adelson's stake in the casino company by 4%. Miriam Adelson is the widow Las Vegas Sands founder Sheldon Adelson who died in 2021. She has had no corporate involvement in the company but her son-in-law Patrick Dumont is president of the Sands and a member of the company's board of directors.

Adelson, 78, is the widow of Sheldon Adelson, the founder of Las Vegas Sands who died in 2021. She has no role with the corporate side of the company, but through a trust and her personal shares, she controls 56.4% of the Sands. Miriam Adelson is ranked at No. 24 on the Forbes 400 with a net worth of $32.3 billion.

She has cut back on her husband's political donations. When he was alive, Sheldon Adelson was among the GOP's largest donors, although Miriam Adelson has met with presidential hopeful Nikki Haley and former President Donald Trump, the front runner in next year's election.

Las Vegas, long considered a prime market for professional sports, has added a handful of teams and high profile events to the city in recent years. Formula One has added a stop in Las Vegas to its Grand Prix race tour.

Major League Baseball recently approved the relocation of the Oakland Athletics to a $1.5 billion stadium planned for the Strip that is scheduled to open in 2028 following in the footsteps of their pro football counterparts and stadium mates.

The Raiders moved from Oakland to Las Vegas for the 2020 NFL season, which led the NFL to award Super Bowl LVIII to Allegiant Stadium in February. With the A's move, Oakland County Coliseum, long a central focus of competitive professional sports in its heyday, will now sit empty.

The Vegas Golden Knights, an expansion team in the National Hockey League, began play at T-Mobile Arena in 2017.

The Adelson family had a hand in bringing the Raiders to Las Vegas, but Sheldon Adelson, who had committed $650 million to help build Allegiant Stadium, pulled his funding after the state Legislature passed a $750 million measure tied to a hotel tax on the Strip.

The NBA has been widely thought to be considering expanding to Las Vegas. Oak View Group CEO Tim Leiweke is planning a 20,000 seat arena built to NBA specifications, part of a $10 billion resort and entertainment complex on land leased to him by the son of the Sands Chairman and CEO.

Mark Cuban plans to leave 'Shark Tank': 'It's time'

TV News

Longtime Shark Tank star Mark Cuban says he plans to leave the show.

The billionaire businessman, 65, recently said on Showtime's All the Smoke podcast that he will exit Shark Tank after Season 16 of the ABC reality series.

Shark Tank features entrepreneurs who pitch their business ideas to Cuban and other "sharks," or well-known potential investors.

On All the Smoke, Cuban praised Shark Tank but said "it's time" for him to go.

"I love it because it sends the message the American dream is alive and well," the star said of the show. "I feel like in doing Shark Tank all these years, we've trained multiple generations of entrepreneurs that if somebody can come from Iowa or Sacramento or wherever, and show up on the carpet of Shark Tank and show their business and get a deal, it's going to inspire generations of kids."

"I've invested in, I don't know how many hundreds of companies," he added.

Cuban joined Shark Tank as a guest in Season 2 and became a series regular in Season 3. He has invested in such companies as BeatBox Beverages and Dude Wipes.

Other sharks include Daymond John, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec, Kevin O'Leary and Lori Greiner.

Cuban told Forbes on Monday that he had nothing to add to his comments on the podcast and that he's "still got a whole new season to shoot."

Shark Tank is in its 15th season on ABC.

X Corp Founder Elon Musk vs DealBook

Is it just us or is X @X not exactly the ideal place for Disney or Marvel to connect with potential customers these days? No great loss in many ways. Interesting and "mainly truthful" or "completely truthful" interview. Stopped watching Disney and Marvel movies almost a decade ago as the newer ones reminded us of the dirty biz of politics more than of an actual enjoyable movie experience to escape the sometimes crazy world. Elon Musk interview in our view was in the realm of "mainly truthful' to "completely truthful". Truth is an interesting concept. One can speak their own truth, so to speak. Check out the interview conducted by Andrew at DealBook. Highlights trending on X and some other platforms also.

UFC @UFC top brass Dana White appearance with Neck Boys connection sees Full Send grow audience, garner futher respect and grab more eyeballs

Mr White did not appear to hold back much with his typical hard and brutal thuth bombs..

“If we go to war right now, are you confident in this generation that we have right now? That these guys are gonna go out and storm some *ucking beach somewhere? There’s a small, handful of people, most of them probably down around the bible belt and down south that will actually *ucking stand up and fight for this *ucking country right now. It’s scary. Khabib’s crew in Dagestan could probably come in and take over this *ucking country right now because this generation is such a bunch of *ucking *ussies. We’re getting soft. We’re getting weak. Every 10 years we get softer and weaker.”

“To be fair, I think every generation thinks the next generation is soft. If you look at all the *hit that's going on in the world right now, there’s no respect for the police anymore, there’s no respect for the military. There’s no respect for our country, our freedom, our way of life that we have here. You can sit around and nitpick and talk about things that are wrong with the United States. Let me tell you something, your generation, my generation, everybody’s generation … this is it. If this falls, there’s no other *ucking place to go.” - Dana White

X, Elon Musk and Disney Boss trends for variety of reasons

Any publicity is good publicity, questions media vets

As recently reported, there appears to be a trend of more X @X users/customers cancelling Disney for good.

One high profile type X account ran by Collin Rugg @CollinRugg of Trending Politics

ran with this...

NEW: X users are cancelling their Disney+ subscriptions after Elon Musk told Disney CEO Bob Iger to “go f**k yourself” for blackmailing X. Good. Stop giving money to people who hate you and hate free speech. X users are fighting back and rallying behind Elon after he blasted advertisers for trying to blackmail him with money. “Cancelled Disney and Paramount Plus”...

Media Man "Anyone with decent critical thinking skills and even a very basic level of comms and media training can quickly figure out fact from fiction here. We are of the strong understanding that Disney top mouse Bob Iger is digging himself into an even bigger hole. Who actually goes to these Disney movies anymore? Movies are supposed to be about entertainment and escapism right? Guess they got the fantasy aspects down. Movies are not supposed to be saturated by political messaging, themes and quotas. Not in America or Australia as far as we know. Many decades ago some movies were used as a way to peddle propaganda, be it military, drugs or other. Maybe in some ways history is repeating again. Wouldn't want to be an investor in Disney right now. Their loss will be another's gain. People power appears to be swinging back towards's Musk's X from what we are seeing (but it's unlikely you will read that in a mainstream newspaper). Yep, many at Disney living at Fantasy Land. Shame about what happended to the once universally loved and respected House Of Mouse."

Boxing Fantasy Dream Matches and more Cross-over scenarios

It's understood most of if not all of these match-ups will never happen, but you never ever know.

For example Floyd Mayweather
went 8 rounds in an exhibition boxing match with Logan Paul
back in June of 2021 right! Wrestling giant Paul Wight (aka Big Show) knows a thing or two about "Money's" power and speed.

Boxing Dream Match Time Machine

Mayweather vs Jake Paul

Tyson Fury
vs Mike Tyson

Conor McGregor
vs Jake Paul or Logan Paul

Conor McGregor vs Jake Paul

Dillion Danis
vs Baron Corbin

*Corbin is a former 2x Golden Gloves boxing champion!

Bobby Lashley
vs Tyson Fury

*Other than being an overall badass pro wrestler and grappler, Lashley is also undefeated in mixed martial arts.

As the combat sports world knows, on October 28 of this year former MMA champion Francis Ngannou
went the full 10 rounds with boxing world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. "The Predator" came up short (officially), but many fans, insiders and even fellow boxers and combat sports practitioners viewed Ngannou as a "real winner" of the fight, be it on points or just perception, such was his ultra-impressive showing against the champion - in his first pro boxing match no less!

The success of "The Predator" against "The Gypsy King l" got many hardcore and even casual fight fans thinking of more "what-if" scenarios, especially with cross-over fighters (skilled in more than one fighting style/discipline).

Combat sports commentators such straight shooting Chael Sonnen
had a field day with their colourful analysis of the Fury vs Ngannou match and still occasionally mentions the historic match-up to the present day.

Some fantasy dream matches are more likely to happen in a WWE
(pro wrestling ring) or in the likes of a Misfits Boxing
type celebrity connection arena, but one can almost never say never!

How would pro wrestling and MMA living legend Brock Lesnar
go in boxing for example? Or, how about if Lesnar faced Logan Paul in a MMA rules type match at a WWE premium live (FKA Pay-Per-View) event?!

To state the bleeding obvious, both competitors in these so called dream matches need to be willing to face each other and the rules need established (to help avoid strange situations like Ali vs Inoki (Japan, 1976). Of course you need a promoter to host, promote and hype up the fight.

It's all quite a Pandora's Box or hornets (Green) nest (wink to legendary Bruce Lee
), who portrayed "Kato" in The Green Hornet TV series (1966-1967).

Fans and insiders, this Gonzo-ish dream match scribe should keep you hanging on until the next Top Rank Boxing, UFC, PFL and WWE productions.

WrestleMania Season is fast approaching as is UFC 300, and UFC top brass Dana White has already secured The Sphere
Las Vegas for Mexican Independence weekend with fights scheduled for September 14, 2024.

What an interesting time to be alive and I think we can agree what a great time to be a fan and/or insider or competitor in a fighting discipline.

I'm often asked "What's the future of newspapers"?

So, here's more of your weekly Gonzo journalism style banter of the industry many people love to hate.

A. Newspapers in one form of another are hear to stay.

B. Newspapers in their traditional form are likely to get thinner, if as there not thin enough already.

C. Online newspaper websites will continue to grow, and numerous online advertising campaigns will compliment the news, as well as sponsored content, special features backed by firms who can pay a few extra bucks, and most papers will incorporate some kind of paywall, just as The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Australian Financial Review, The Daily Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal, and others have done.

D. Our friends at the Australian based ABC will continue to look to use every trick in the book to gain extra readership, as well as look to curb retention, by doing cross promotions and also continue to invest in online technologies and online advertising, be it via online advertising giant Google, Facebook, or another firm that may not even be in existence yet.

E. News apps, such as SMH and The Age will continue to develop. Obviously news media giants would like their brand of news to be front of mind, and to be the first port of call of Joe and Jane's smartphone.

F. Mergers and acquisitions will continue to be all the rage, be it a merger between Bloomberg and Ten, Bloomberg and Sky News, Reuters or whatever. There are simply too many news media players in the current national and international market, and not enough online advertisers for all firms to remain without considerable shake ups to the business models. Companies will merge including a few surprises.

G. Niche media outlets will continue to be all the rage. Witness the Australian real estate sector wars such as Domain vs vs Local Agent Finder vs Purple Bricks or even in the action sports arena, WWE Network vs UFC Fight Pass. Funny example, I know. Ok, Carsales vs Oh, Figure Four Online / Wrestling Observer Newsletter vs Pro Wrestling Torch, and if surfing and surf culture is your thing: CoastalWatch vs Swellnet. Oh, Gaming and gambling.. Gambling911 vs Poker News Daily. Perhaps iGaming Business. Comics and the superhero genre your thin? Enter Marvel Comics / Marvel Studios vs DC Comics / Warner Bros. wars. 20th Century FOX will continue to interject from time to time, as will Sony with Spider-Man. Where's Frank Miller and his Sin-City when you need him. Lord knows Marvel's Going to run with a Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 at some point. There's too much money to be made on the franchise, and we all want the next mixtape right! Google Play and friends will be more than happy to sell it to you. If hard copy comic books are your thing the website is Go on, you know you want to.

Crypto currency news: CoinTelegraph vs CoinDesk, and so it goes on.

Sports personalities and entertainers looking to do their own thing via the podcasting medium - 100s to find at the likes of We miss you Rowdy Roddy Piper.. R.I.P. Those who like their pro wrestling banner raw will appreciate our friend Jake 'The Snake' Roberts...he's part of the Diamond Dallas Page connection. Comon', you must have heard of Dally and DDP Yoga? Still waiting for UFC / MMA living legend Ken Shamrock to release his podcast, which he gave us the scoop on a few months back. Some good things take time. Female wrestling legends Madusa and Lilian Garcia also have them. You will have to appreciate them for their vocal skills and beautiful voices... it's not about their good looks on the podcast's fellas.

H. Expect crypto currency brands such as Bitcoin to continue to remain very newsworthy, and for news media to ramp up their involvement with the Crypto's... is that a word Jack?

I. Our company, Media Man (Media Man Int and Media Man Australia) will continue to survive and team up with suitable media partners, and carry advertisements, in addition to maintaining some sponsored content. Expect more newspaper backed events in the same vein as The Sun-Herald City2Surf. The Greg Tingle Promotions website is a work in progress, as we adapt to the ever changing news media business landscape. Yes, you may advertise via the Greg Tingle Promotions website also, if you insist!

J. Google's YouTube and Netflix will continue to dominate the streaming medium. Apple will continue to do their darnest to make further inroads into this major sector.

K. Blockchain will start to become a factor in the news media business, be it online and / or off-line.

L. Rupert Murdoch and his News Corp will remain a major player in the space. Murdoch's quote 'Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow', will continue to hold true in many fashions.

Other: this is an opinion piece punters, if you didn't figure it out already. Some will love it, some will not, such is the nature of the beast. We shall look forward to the haters and the fan mail. Don't like it? Tell the dog!

PS: stay tuned for a more corporate or so called "professional" version of this article, without so many pop culture references, if that's your thing. You can't please all of the people all of the time.
