Thirty years in the making! Wrestling is a lot of things, but ultimately it is a business, with the main idea being to get people to watch. Without fans watching, there is not going to be much of a future to the place. Drawing an audience is what matters most at the end of the day and now the biggest wrestling company in the world has set a new record when it comes to drawing in money through fans.

This week’s edition of Monday Night Raw marked thirty years of the show, with the event being held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. WWE has announced that the show has set an all time record for the highest domestic gate in the history of Monday Night Raw. There was no word on the gate or the previous record, though commentary did announce a live attendance of 16,975.
It was a special show. Check out what happened at Raw XXX:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that WWE can brag about as they did something that has not happened in thirty years. It shows that there is still an audience for WWE and in a way, it is stronger than it ever has been before. It helps that the show wound up going rather well and hopefully WWE can keep some of the audience that they picked up this week. If nothing else, well done on having a rather good night.
