In a departure from tradition, WWE will not be using a stage for its WrestleMania week RAW and Smackdown shows at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
This decision is reportedly motivated by the company's desire to maximize revenue and lower costs, as it expects to sell more tickets by cramming as many fans as possible into the venue. With the new ownership in place, WWE is focused on increasing revenue and reducing expenses, and this change is seen as a way to achieve those goals.
In a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that in an effort to maximize fan attendance, the company has decided not to include a stage at the upcoming show. This move is aimed at accommodating the largest possible number of fans in the venue.
“WWE has made the decision to not use a stage for the WrestleMania week Raw and Smackdown shows at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
The feeling is that with all the tourists in town and the brand being hot that they will be able to sell more tickets and drive more revenue (plus it saves on arena costs).
Basically with the new ownership it’s about maximizing revenue and lowering costs, and both buildings will be set up for 18,553 tickets instead of about 13,000 which would normally be the case.”
