WWE has bounced back from the COVID pandemic in a huge way. The company has been selling out buildings around the United States over the past several months, both for premium live events and television tapings. With this Friday’s SmackDown nearly sold out, the momentum continues to roll.

Raw will return to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on August 1. The last time they were there, they drew just under 9,000 fans. The venue was also the first stop on WWE’s post-pandemic return to the road and drew 14,000 fans.

According to WrestleTix on Patreon, the August 1 Raw taping will be close to sold out, as well. The building is currently configured for 11,163 fans. WWE has already distributed over 10,000 tickets for the show.
