WWE SmackDown Breaks Record Attendance in Portland

WWE is currently riding high on fan interest, with the company generating headlines for its corporate activities. The recent SmackDown event in Portland took place fresh off the heels of WrestleMania 39, drawing a large crowd. According to a report from Fightful’s paywall, WWE recorded a record gate for SmackDown this week. The event held at the Moda Center drew the highest number of attendees for any non-pay-per-view event in the venue’s history.

The success of this week’s SmackDown can be attributed to a mix of factors, including the aftermath of WrestleMania 39 and the interest in the blue brand. The event also saw a surge in attendance following Monday’s RAW, which likely contributed to the larger turnout. WWE’s decision to bring SmackDown to Portland paid off, as fans got their money’s worth and the company reaped the financial rewards.

Interestingly, this week’s SmackDown event went off without a hitch, unlike Monday’s RAW. Vince McMahon, the CEO of WWE, was not in attendance due to his prior commitment on the East Coast. However, he did make some minor edits to the show via a phone call, without making any significant changes.

The recent surge in attendance and public interest in WWE is likely a result of the company’s growing appeal. The merger with the UFC under one publicly traded company has only contributed to the hype surrounding WWE. As the company continues to break records and generate buzz, it will be interesting to see if this trend can sustain itself over the long-term.

Ultimately, the success of WWE SmackDown in Portland serves as a testament to the company’s ability to adapt and evolve. The event’s high attendance numbers and lack of major issues during the show are a cause for celebration for fans and the company alike. As WWE continues to navigate its new terrain, one thing is certain – the company is riding a hot streak, and it’s unclear how long this momentum will last.
