WWE brought a loaded TakeOver event to Portland last night. They broke a record in the process.
NXT TakeOver: Portland brought a packed show to the Moda Center. Triple H revealed during the post-TakeOver conference call that they broke a long-standing WWE record in the state of Oregon in the process.
Triple H said that last night’s NXT TakeOver: Portland event was the highest-grossing WWE event in Oregon since 2008’s No Mercy pay-per-view.
That is a pretty high bar to set for future events in Oregon. Perhaps this is also a sign that WWE needs to venture there more often.
