Report: GLORY’s “Last Man Standing” PPV Numbers Extremely Low
By FCF Staff
Although GLORY’s “Last Man Standing” featured several, high profile fights, and the preliminary card on SPIKE drew solid ratings, according to a report the pay-per-view struggled in sales.
The kickboxing event featured a thrilling eight man, middleweight tourney as well as a heavyweight title fight between Rico Verhoeven and Daniel Ghita. According to a report from Liver Kick.com, however, veteran journalist Dave Meltzer relayed in his Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the card “bombed” in PPV buys.
While no official numbers are available, Meltzer reportedly said the card did much worse than recent TNA and ROH wrestling PPVs, which are believed to have drawn less than 9,000 buys.
“Last Man Standing” went down on June 21st and was hosted by the Forum in Inglewood, California.
GLORY 17 was broadcast on SPIKE leading into “Last Man Standing”, and drew an average of 483,000 viewers. The card, which featured Mirko “Cro Cop” decisioning Jarrell Miller, peaked at 862,000 viewers.
