Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter- As noted earlier, WWE released their Key Performance Indicators for the second quarter of 2013. WWE's 7 regular live events and TV tapings in North America for the month of April averaged 10,100 paid fans per show. This would be the highest month for domestic average attendance going back to the Attitude Era, but it could be misleading because it was only 7 shows since most of the shows in April were held in Europe. The European shows averaged 6,600 paid fans for 22 live events.
- WWE shipped 423,000 DVD units in April, up 112.6 from the 199,000 in April 2012.
- WWE's website had 18.3 million unique visitors in the month of April, up 10.9% from the 16.5 million in April 2012. The shop website averaged 867 orders per day in April, up 8.4% from the 800 per day in April 2012.
- CM Punk was in attendance last night as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Detroit Red Wings to advance to the NHL Western Conference Finals. Punk tweeted:
"I'm going straight back to LA to punch the kings mascot in the dick! Here we come !!!!"
