WWE may be too expensive for some fans

We are all aware that the WWE Network is currently available for just $9.99, but this is just one aspect of the high price of being a devoted member of the WWE Universe.

PPV events

Though the pay-per-view events the WWE boasts only take place once a month, the cost to a WWE fan for each of them means that annually, it adds up to watch all of them.

But in reality the biggest story lines and biggest matches take place during each pay-per-view which leaves WWE followers with no choice but to pay the price to watch them.

It is a wonder though with the money that the industry and its wrestlers is making, why it has to cost us followers so much to be a part of such a successful business.

Cost of merchandise 

Another area of WWE which can add up for a fan is that of merchandise. Despite the WWE shop having clothing which starts out a relatively normal price, it does promote memorabilia such as plaques which are available at a cost of hundreds of dollars.

Ultimately, if a member of the WWE Universe is looking to show their support for their favourite wrestler by buying their merchandise, they will need a fare few dollars, not to mention it costing even more when a new range for that wrestler becomes available.

Once a WWE follower is then kitted out with their favourite wrestler's products, the price of a ticket to a pay-per-view event then adds to the cost even further.

Fans of WWE can attend Hell in a Cell on October 26th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas for anything from $40 to $400.

Despite the fact attending an event as big as a WWE pay-per-view may well not be something a WWE fan would do every month, there is no doubt that when someone does it will cost them a considerable amount of money to make it a memorable experience.

In addition, ticket prices to WWE's weekly shows; Monday Night Raw and Smackdown cost a more reasonable price, starting out at $20. For the top price ticket and seat however, a WWE follower will need to pay $100 to see all the action close up.

Despite the expensive cost of some aspects of WWE to its fans, the availability of the merchandise, shows and local events is what maintains the strong relationship the industry has with its fans which will remain the case for some time to come.
