• Update On The Major Topic Of Discussion Among WWE Wrestlers Backstage During Last Night’s RAW
The UFC 261 pay-per-view took place this past weekend and it was a great pay-per-view event with 3 exciting Title fights.
Some of the talking points from this PPV were Chris Weidman breaking his leg, “Thug” Rose Namajunas becoming a 2-time UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion and Kamaru Usman brutally knocking out Jorge Masvidal to retain the UFC Welterweight Championship.
Another major highlight from this PPV was the presence of 15,000 fans in attendance. This is the highest attendance for a UFC event ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
According to WrestleVotes, this was a major topic of discussion backstage during last night’s RAW:
“A major topic last night backstage at RAW was the packed house over the weekend at the UFC PPV. While not many superstars are advocating for 100% capacity, nearly everyone feels as though live crowds could return in some form at this time.”
Fans returned to WWE’s main roster shows for two nights only, which was earlier this month at WrestleMania 37.
There are reports that SummerSlam 2021 will be WWE’s next pay-per-view event which will feature fans in attendance once again.
