• Actual Attendance For WWE Stomping Grounds PPV Revealed
Below are some photos:
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer noted that about 6,000 fans were in attendance for the PPV, with about 4,000-4,500 paid fans:
“They were giving away a lot of tickets — a lot of two for one — the paid was not good. I heard 6,000 in the building, but maybe 4,000 to 4,500 paid.
I can’t remember a WWE pay-per-view in a long time where they did that little paid. I can’t remember a WWE pay-per-view where they were giving away tickets at the mall either.”
