WWE and AEW are closing up another week, and there is a lot to unpack. Now, we have the live attendance numbers that both companies were able to pull in this week for their television shows.
WrestleTix recently compiled attendance figures for WWE and AEW television shows this week. Among the shows, SmackDown emerged as the most attended television show of the week, while the least attended show was AEW Collision and Rampage, which was a three-hour event running concurrently with Survivor Series.
WWE Raw in Grand Rapids, MI on November 20th was held at the Van Andel Arena, and they drew an audience of 7,447. AEW Dynamite went down at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL, garnered 5,066 attendees on November 22nd.
WWE SmackDown in Chicago, IL, at the Allstate Arena, boasted the highest attendance for television this week with 15,937 fans in attendance on November 24th. Meanwhile, the AEW Collision and Rampage double taping on November 25th, held at the Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh, PA, attracted 3,496 fans.
WWE Survivor Series also took place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL, on Saturday, November 25th, and they packed that venue. In the end, 16,809 tickets were distributed for the show. In the end, Survivor Series was able to attract more fans than SmackDown, but that kind of attendance for a WWE premium live event should be expected at this point.
We will have continued coverage of AEW and WWE programming, including how many fans show up to their events, right here at Ringside News. This is an exciting time to be a pro wrestling fan, and fans are proving this by dropping money on tickets.
