Big Cass Getting Big Push?, Live Event Attendance Dropping

Published

on

– It has been reported that higher ups in WWE are high on Colin Cassady. It’s a rare sight to see a newcomer open Monday Night Raw, but he did on the 5/9 episode. He was even promoted as the main event of the show and he has been kept strong even when Enzo Amore returned to action. People in the company have noted that Cass is well-liked backstage, he is coming along well on his promos and he is seen as someone that can represent the company well in media appearances.

Also, the feeling on Cass is that he was able to run with the ball when Enzo Amore was out of action with a concussion. There is even a possibility of WWE splitting the tag team up in the Draft & pushing Big Cass as a singles star.

– As noted on Wrestling Observer radio, the attendance for live events headlined by Roman Reigns is dropping. Just 6 months ago, shows headlined by Roman Reigns were drawing over 5,000 fans. As you can see below, most shows headlined by Reigns are drawing far less than that. Even worse, some shows headlined by Dean Ambrose, who is not positioned as a top star on television, are outdrawing shows with Reigns on top.
