How Much Will DISH Lose By Not Airing Elimination Chamber?, WWE Returning To Peoria, More

- WWE will be returning to the Peoria Civic Center in Peoria, IL for a live event on Sunday, April 27th. Tickets go on sale on March 1st at 10 am at the Peoria Civic Center box office and at Ticketmaster.com.

- WWEShop.com has an Elimination Chamber sale running through the end of the day. You can take 25% off t-shirts & 50% off in stock DVDs with promo code CHAMBER by clicking here.

- Variety has an article about DISH Network not carrying this Sunday's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view at this link.

- Speaking of DISH Network, Dave Meltzer made some interesting notes on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio about DISH Network not carrying the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. Meltzer noted that DISH Network would only lose in the ballpark of $460,000 (taking into account the split between WWE and DISH). While DISH will be announcing their Q4 2013 results tomorrow, for Q3 2013 the company generated $3.6 billion in revenue.

Meltzer pointed out that WWE is a distant number three in pay-per-view, behind boxing and the UFC. If DISH were to cave in to WWE's demands, it would set a precedent that would potentially allow boxing and UFC to undercut them and make their events available on the internet at a slightly lower price, while not having to split the revenue with the satellite providers.
