– In what is a change from the past, when WWE announces a sell out on TV or pay-per-view it actually means they are sold out. There was a company policy back in the 1980s and 1990s to frequently refer to events as being sold out or the famous “capacity crowd” line by Gorilla Monsoon. Fake numbers were often given where they would state 23,000 people were in a building that only held 18,000. This philosophy is said to have largely changed within WWE with the exception of WrestleMania 23 at Ford Field where a fake attendance number was given to claim a stadium record or last week’s Raw taping in Los Angeles.
– Vince McMahon was coached by his legal team on what to say and not to say during media interviews during the whole Pepsi Center debacle last week but ended up ignoring a lot of what they advised. This may be the reason why they started out threatening legal action against Stan Kroenke but backed off it. Another reasons may be that they didn’t have any legal case to stand on based on the way the contracts were worded.
