“They’re a musical version of everything NXT is trying to be in the sports-entertainment world,” said Corey Graves in an interview with WWE.com. “Plus, the chorus of ‘Throne’ says, ‘Every scar will build my throne.’ That’s representative of our business. We take our lumps just trying to build something. It’s not going to be easy, but eventually, it will pay off.” 

That’s The Spirit debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, selling roughly 62,000 total units. In terms of pure album sales (the Billboard Top 200 includes streaming), they debuted at No. 1 with 55,000 units moved. This marks the band’s best first-week sales of their career.
