Update On WWE Live Events Drawing Very Well

A recent WWE live event provided a good example of how well things are going for the company in terms of its touring business.

As fans of WWE, we know that the company produces live episodes of Raw every Monday and Smackdown every Friday as far as the main roster goes. In addition to that, they also have one or two different live events most weekends to entertain more fans without the cameras present.

These days, most TV tapings are sold out or close to that while live event audiences are growing. It certainly isn’t at Attitude Era levels with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock and others on top, but business is going well.

This past Sunday at a live event in Denver featuring both Raw & Smackdown wrestlers, the show was headlined by Cody Rhodes, Braun Strowman & Ricochet beating The Bloodline’s Solo Sikoa & The Usos. Others on the show included Bobby Lashley in his home state, Charlotte Flair, Bianca Belair, Austin Theory and more.

During a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the crowd in Denver on Sunday night being very impressive in terms of how many people were there.

“WWE business is so strong right now. They did a house show (last night) in Denver, I didn’t get the gate yet, but they were over 9,000 tickets out (in the morning), and this is a house show. The last time that they did TV there, they were like 5,500 paid for a Raw I think it was. And you come back with a house show, and you’re doing well over 9,000. With the walk-up it could have hit 10,000.”

“And they did it with a lineup that – there was no Sami Zayn, no Kevin Owens, no Roman Reigns. Cody was there, but many of the top guys weren’t even on the card. I’m trying to figure out how many years it’s been since WWE was out there able to do 10,000 people in a city like Denver, or 9,000 people for a house show. It’s been years, I think.”
