In the end, WWE will benefit regardless.

Royal Rumble 2012 had 443,000 buys, the year before was 446,000 and the year before that was 462,000 buys.

With the Royal Rumble match itself this year and Rock/Punk for the WWE Championship, I don't see how the pay-per-view doesn't do at least 500K buys.

Elimination Chamber will definitely see a boost from The Rock's appearance and WrestleMania 29 is going to be huge. Should be around 1.2 - 1.3 million like WrestleMania 28, maybe even more by replacing Chris Jericho with Brock Lesnar. PPV business for the first quarter of 2013 is going to do very well for WWE, so I doubt there's much concern.
