Bad Sign For WWE Stomping Grounds Attendance, R-Truth Still Stuck In Box Headed To RAW (Video)
- This week's WWE SmackDown saw WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth keep his title because he was locked in a production equipment box all night. That box was shipped to Monday's RAW from Los Angeles later on in the show, with Truth still inside.

Truth took to Twitter today and posted a storyline update, calling for help because he's still stuck in the box. He wrote, "Help, help, With a Capital HELP!!! Somebody tell'em my phone is about to die! I'm trapped in a blue box, and it's headed to LA for Monday Night Raw!"

You can see Truth's Twitter video below, along with a look at Drake Maverick's new "Maverick 24:7" t-shirt that celebrates his around-the-clock hunt for the title.

- Plenty of seats are still available for the first-ever WWE Stomping Grounds pay-per-view, according to Ticketmaster.

As of this writing, tickets are still available at $27, $37, $57, $77, $92, $152, $227, $352, $502 and $652. There are just a handful of the $502 seats left and just two of the $652 seats.

Regarding low interest for the pay-per-view, two common themes on social media are how fans are saying they wouldn't want to dish out top dollar for matches they could see on TV or a card full of rematches, and how nothing on RAW or SmackDown excites them enough to want to attend a pay-per-view right now.

Stomping Grounds takes place on June 23 from the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington. The arena has a capacity of 23,000, but WWE will likely set up for somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000. The arena seats 10,000 for football events, 19,100 for hockey events, and just over 20,000 for basketball and indoor soccer events.

As seen below, a fan tweeted screenshots of the Ticketmaster seating chart as of Monday. The blue dots are seats that were still available as of then. It looks like they haven't sold too many tickets since the screenshots were taken.
