According to the latest numbers released to WWE stockholders, the 2011 Money in the Bank pay-per-view with John Cena vs. CM Punk in Chicago did over 265,000 worldwide buys. This is up over 100,000 pay-per-view buys from the first Money in the Bank pay-per-view, which did 165,000 worldwide buys.
The increase can be attributed to the hot CM Punk angle and the match against John Cena.
The 2011 Money in the Bank buyrate is WWE's best this year besides WrestleMania 27 and the Royal Rumble.
