Huge Colorado Crowd Welcomes Cody Rhodes and WWE To Town
It was a Sunday Night that WWE fans in Colorado won't soon forget as a packed Ball Arena hosted one of the final stops on the Road to WrestleMania. What an amazing show.
WWE Road To WrestleMania In Colorado Sets Recent Attendance Record
Just six days away from what could be the biggest WrestleMania in WWE history, as it takes over SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California, on April 1st & 2nd. The 3rd to the final stop on the Road to WrestleMania tour stopped by the Ball Arena in Denver and had a packed house! As of last night when the gates opened, they had sold nearly 10,000 tickets, for a non-televised show. A year ago, for the live WWE Monday Night Raw, there were just over 6,000 seats sold. I was told this was the largest attended WWE show in over ten years which speaks volumes about how good the current product is. And last night was no exception, just look at this line-up.
- RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair defeated Chelsea Green
- Sheamus, Butch, and Ridge Holland (Brawling Brutes) defeated the WWE Intercontinental Champion Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser, and Giovanni Vinci
- Bronson Reed defeated Johnny Gargano
-SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair defeated Liv Morgan and Sonya Deville
- Asuka and Mia Yim defeated Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky (with Bayley)
- WWE United States Champion Austin Theory retained over The Miz and Bobby Lashley.
- Main Event: Cody Rhodes, Braun Strowman, and Ricochet defeated Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos and Solo Sikoa. They then named themselves the Denver six-man tag team champions.
The show was amazing from start to finish, and coming from someone who's been going to WWE "house shows," or non-televised shows, they've stepped up every single aspect of how these shows are put on. From the set to the interviews to the talent to even just using the jumbo tron. These feel just like a live TV show without actually being on TV. WWE has certainly stepped these show up and last night's attendance proved that. After the main event, Cody, Braun, and Ricochet stuck around to meet any fans that wanted to meet them, including my son. It was really special. Check out a few pix I took from the event, below.
Braun Strowman wanted to have a flexing contest... Clearly, my son won!
He was so excited to see Cody Rhodes in person.
The Bloodline was in the building.
The WWE Smackdown Women's Champion, Charlotte Flair!
Sheamus picked up my boy and carried him up to the ring. How freaking cool is that?
The perfect way to end the night, Cody Rhodes got to meet future WWE Champion Rockin' Rylee Michales. I can't tell you how much fun this event truly was and we can't wait until they come back to Colorado. I mean that literally as we're flying out on Saturday morning to go see WrestleMania in LA this weekend. Cody for the win! Here are some more pix we took last time WWE was in town.
