WWE held the 30th anniversary episode of their longest weekly episodic TV show RAW last Monday inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the show featured two massive title matchups as well as appearances from several WWE legends such as Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, D-Generation X, Kurt Angle, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Madusa, Teddy Long, Ron Simmons, DDP, Jimmy Hart, Jerry “The King” Lawler, Ted DiBiase and IRS.
The company is known to inflate attendance numbers for its shows when commentary announces the figure during broadcasts and Corey Graves noted on the show that there was 16,957 fans in attendance, but an announcement was made by WrestleTix, via their official Twitter account, that RAW 30 this past Monday night actually drew a total of 14,451 fans in attendance.
There was also an announcement from the WWE that this past Monday’s RAW had the highest domestic gate in the show’s 30-year history, but this impressive feat only includes episodes of RAW that have taken place in the U.S.
