Fan mania behind "McMahon's Million Dollar Mania"
Before Michael S. was named the last winner for the foreseeable future -- earning a $500,000 payday from the Chairman's personal funds -- 2.08 million people had registered on WWE.com in a sweepstakes that has dominated the world's attention over the past three weeks. Even more impressive, those same "McMahon's Million Dollar Mania" participants recorded a staggering 6.02 million sweeps entries on WWE.com.
Whereas most sweepstakes generally peter out beyond their initial stages, "McMahon's Million Dollar Mania" only gained more steam with each passing week, particularly during the hours of Monday Night Raw. On June 2, upon the sweepstakes' commencement, more than 46,000 registered on WWE.com. The following week, that number climbed to 75,000 new registrations. On June 16, WWE.com recorded more than 106,000 registrants. And during Raw Monday, more than 130,000 new registrants vied for the opportunity to win a portion of the Chairman's money -- and that's only a fraction of the 848,409 who entered throughout the day.
Needless to say, these historic numbers would please even the Chairman of World Wrestling Entertainment. Hopefully, depending on his condition in the days following such a horrifying accident, Mr. McMahon will be able to address our fans himself, and thank them for taking part in a sweepstakes that up to this point has been incredibly successful -- and extremely profitable for some.
