In my opinion the WFA did horribly from a business perspective with this event. They obviously lost a ton of money with this event and probably didn't draw in too many fans other than die-hard fans who would have supported them anyways. In my opinion they are going to need a TV deal to survive in any sort of long run.
they made a profit when you factor in the live sales plus ppv plus the amount all the sponsors paid to get their names in the cage and the merchandise sales at the venue
