• 4 Reasons Why WWE Couldn’t Sell Out The Allegiant Stadium For Money In The Bank 2022
WWE was set to return to the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada for Money In The Bank 2022 on July 2nd.
However, that isn’t the case anymore.
WWE has now moved this premium live event to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
This change was made because WWE couldn’t sell out the stadium.
According to WrestleTix, WWE sold around 18,000 tickets for MITB at Allegiant Stadium.
SummerSlam 2021 also took place at the Allegiant Stadium and the attendance was 51,326.
Below are some of the main reasons why WWE couldn’t sell out the Stadium:
– While Money In The Bank is considered a top WWE PPV, it still isn’t on the level on the “Big 4” PPVs.
– This event takes place just 4 weeks before SummerSlam 2022, and there’s a big chance some fans decided to save money and attend SummerSlam instead of MITB, especially since SummerSlam will be a bigger show and will most likely feature returns of big names like Brock Lesnar and John Cena.
– Tickets prices are high.
– WWE is going head to head with the UFC 276 PPV in the same area, so that could’ve hurt the tickets sales as well.

• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School ECW Veteran “The King of Old School” Steve Corino celebrates his 49th birthday today.
Steve wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling from 1998 till January 2001, including a 2 month run as the ECW World Heavyweight Champion.
Corino was already signed to a World Championship Wrestling contract right after leaving ECW, but never got to make an appearance, before Vince McMahon bought the company in march and released him from the contract.
He then appeared for several minor promotions, such as Ring of Honor, Extreme Rising, NWA Florida, World Wrestling Council, Zero1 and Major League Wrestling.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE CORINO!
