Update On Drug Use In WWE, House Shows Getting Smaller Venues
By Feras Ballout | February 15, 2009
- One business change stemming from declining house show numbers in WWE is the company has now started booking smaller buildings in major cities reports The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. A few examples of this include the recent stop in Cleveland, a house show in Vancouver last weekend where instead of using the big arena where the Canucks play they instead booked a 5,500 seat secondary arena and sold it out and in Bakersfield where they sold out a much smaller convention center. This new business change has allowed the company to cut down on costs by booking a cheaper building since they aren't going to sell 8,000 tickets to a non-televised house show in many markets.
