WWE Did Not Announce An Attendance Figure, Attendance Speculated to be 6000, 2000 of those tickets could have been BOGO or Comped

WWE didn't announce an official attendance figure, yet attendance at the Tacoma Dome, a venue that can fit approximately 18,000 people, was very low.

WWE tried to get people into the arena with discounted tickets, "Buy One, Get One" sales and handing out free tickets at malls in the Tacoma area, yet attendance is speculated to be approximately 6000, with 2000 of those tickets or more being Buy One/Get One or free tickets.

"About 6000 in the building, thousands of tickets are Buy One/Get One and comped. Probably smallest attendance at a WWE PPV in a while"-Dave Meltzer

"At the building and half the Dome is tarped off!"



"Half the arena is blocked off, WWE offering seat relocations closer to the action"

When you fill a PPV card with a bunch of matches that everyone has already seen what do you expect?

They have spent the last 5 years giving away great matches on Raw and Smackdown and spoiling every fresh matchup they have and the PPV's suffer because no match feels fresh anymore. We've seen Rollins vs. Corbin, Kingston vs. Ziggler, Bayley vs. Bliss, and Becky vs. Lacey. Literally all 4 World Title matches were rematches.

They are probably going to make the same mistake again tonight by having AJ vs. Ricochet which should be a top of the card match at Wrestlemania and instead will be given away on TV with no promotion or buildup. 5 hours of Raw and Smackdown every week has completely dismantled this company. Every NXT Takeover feels so fresh with new matchups because they don't overexpose and give away all of their great matches for no reason.

I honestly thought Stomping Grounds was next Sunday. No joke. But then again I haven't been following the product much lately

Remember when the WWE marks online would make fun of other promotions as "wrestling in bingo halls"?

Once again speaks to the need to reduce the # of PPV's, doing that would allow feuds to flesh out more often. No need for a PPV every month.

That video in the OP.

How have I not seen that until now? But yeah, nobody should be surprised by the lousy attendance. Product BADLY needs a reboot.

Barely 4,000 tickets paid. Curtains are being used instead of tarps now.

This is officially the New Generation 2.0 era. Holy fuck, you hate to see it.
