According to SLAM! Wrestling columnist Matt Bishop, last Tuesday’s SmackDown! taping in Toledo, Ohio was one of the worst attended WWE live events in years with only a total of 3,200 fans in attendance with 1,600 actually paying for the show.
Bishop described the lack of attendance by saying the following: “Tuesday’s tapings of WWE Smackdown, Superstars and NXT wasn’t notable because of what happened in the ring, but rather because of what was happening outside the ringside area. Or more appropriately, what wasn’t happening. Toledo’s second WWE show of 2011, this time at Huntington Center, was notable because of the lack of fans inside the facility, with almost all of the camera side tarped off, along with a large part of the upper bowl, including all of the seats in the end zone.”
