The legitimate number of tickets sold for WWE SummerSlam has been revealed.
During the July 30 premium live event, Kane made an appearance to announce that the show had an attendance of over 48,000.
According to WrestleTix, this was not actually the case. Reporting on the final count, WrestleTix revealed that WWE actually distributed 40,117 tickets for the event.
For comparison, SummerSlam 2021 had an attendance of 51,326, the second largest crowd in the event’s history.
This year’s premium live event was notably the first following Vince McMahon’s retirement, and Triple H taking over WWE creative.
The new head of creative received a lot of praise online following the event, with fans excited for the ‘Triple H era’ of WWE.
The show was headlined by a crazy Last Man Standing bout, with Roman Reigns ultimately defeating Brock Lesnar to retain his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
An update has since emerged on Brock Lesnar, following speculation about his possible retirement.
