The return of Brock Lesnar has reportedly increased the sales for the July 11 episode of WWE RAW in Texas.
Lesnar took a long break after he lost his WWE Championship to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38 in April this year. The victory saw Reigns become the Undisputed WWE and Universal Champion. The Head of the Table is still going strong in his incredible run.
Last month, Lesnar made a surprise return on a SmackDown episode to confront Reigns. It was later announced that the Beast Incarnate would be challenging Reigns in a Last Man Standing fight SummerSlam for the title.
Following Lesnar’s return, the WWE Company has begun to advertise the former champion for multiple July episodes in the lead up to SummerSlam.
Since the WWE Company announced Lesnar’s participation in the July 11 episode of RAW, the sales for the live event have massively gone up and at this point, there are less than 1,000 tickets available for the event, Sportskeeda reported, citing WrestleTix.
The AT&T Center in San Antonio has a capacity of 7,221 and out of it, well over 6,000 tickets have already been sold. Around 823 tickets are currently available and they should easily be sold out closer to the event, according to RingSideNews.
The live event business has been very efficient for the WWE lately. The Money in the Bank event, which is scheduled to take place Saturday at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, is sold out. Several TV tapings recently have seen near-capacity crowds. With Lesnar and John Cena back in the blend, the company can expect to experience more of such exciting ticket sales days.
It was earlier reported that Seth Rollins, who will feature in the Money in the Bank event, claimed that only he stands a chance in dethroning Reigns from his world titles. Rollins will try his best to triumph in his Money in the Bank fight because the victory would secure him the briefcase, which would include a contract to a championship match of his own choice. Rollins wants to use it for challenging Reigns.
