WWE has been having some issues bringing fans into the building. This is by no means their greatest slump in history, but it’s a considerable one.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned one big statistic that WWE lost to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. For the first time in history UFC beat WWE by having more events to snag 10,000 fans at the gate.

“This is nowhere close to the worst year for attendance numbers for WWE. The mid-90’s were much, much worse than now, but it’s the first time that UFC had more shows that did over 10,000 than WWE and they almost doubled them.”

2020 could be a very interesting year for WWE. They are not closing down. The company has a ton of money coming to them from their television contracts and Saudi Arabia to keep them afloat. They are also still offering huge contracts. The live attendance numbers might need some work.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
