Survivor Series Buyrate; RVD & Batista Movie News

Survivor Series 2008 managed an estimated 326,000 buys, and about 205,000 buys in North America. This number would be the lowest domestic buyrate in Survivor Series history. The 2007 event managed 341,000 worldwide and 215,000 domestic. If the Elimination Chamber remains a February fixture then No Way Out could surpass Survivor Series as the fourth-biggest WWE PPV of the year – in 2008 it managed 230,000 North American buys.

Rob Van Dam and Sir DAVE of Batista are going to be co-starring in a movie called The Wrong Side of the Tracks, Part 1. The filming will be done in Baton Rouge between the 3rd and 24th of February. Batista had wanted to take some time off last year to try acting but his sabbatical kept getting delayed due to injuries to various other wrestlers. Then Randy Orton kicked him in the head and his hamstring imploded.
