WWE has announced that last weekend’s Survivor Series broke several records in the 37-year history of the event.

On Tuesday, the company posted a press release claiming that Sunday’s event scored the highest viewership, largest gate, and best merch sales for any Survivor Series.

The company stated:

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.
