Stomping Grounds Attendance Numbers

WWE’s Stomping Grounds garnered relatively positive reviews from fans. Unfortunately for WWE, the show did not draw the amount of fans they would have hoped. Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t 411Mania) reports that only 4000-5000 tickets were sold for the event in Tacoma, Washington.

The show was known for a hot crowd that was very into the matches. Having some of the crowd tarped off would help with the noise levels. As well, there are reports of decent walk-up ticket numbers. Still, a max of around 6000 fans is still very low for a WWE pay-per-view.

This would explain the increase in two-out-of-three falls matches on WWE television. There are other ideas in mind, including switching to a rounds system as detailed by PWInsider
