Low WWE Stomping Grounds Attendance

Low WWE Stomping Grounds Attendance
The Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington was not sold out for Stomping Grounds.

WWE did not announce an official attendance but there was reportedly a decent line for walk-up tickets at the arena before the show, and a lot of free tickets were given out before the show.

The arena also had half of the seating curtained off to hide the empty seats. Despite the low attendance, one topic on social media coming out of the event was how hot the crowd ended up being.

DEFY Wrestling's Matt Farmer noted on Twitter that there were around 6,000 fans in attendance, which would be one of the smallest WWE pay-per-view crowds in a long time. Farmer also noted that there were "tons" of comped tickets, and a lot of 2 for 1 ticket deals were sold.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the paid attendance for Stomping Grounds was around 4,000 - 4,500 fans. It was also noted that tickets were being given away at the mall earlier in the day. The Tacoma Dome can hold around 18,000 fans after production.

Despite the low attendance, we noted that social media talk pointed to how the crowd was hot for some of the pay-per-view. Furthermore, the part of the arena that was not sectioned off was full of fans.
