In his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talks about which show could sell more tickets at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas: WrestleMania 32 next April, or a UFC super-card rumored for December featuring top draws Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey in action.
While WWE has the WrestleMania brand to promote and a year of lead-up time, JR says that WWE could still drop the ball and fail to draw an audience of 100,000 if they fail to give fans what they want.
“Putting Rousey and Conor McGregor on the same card in December in Arlington, Texas is a no-brainer IMO if the goal is to sell close to 100,000 tickets for UFC,” Ross wrote.
“Adding a strong, Hispanic element to the show is needed too. Nonetheless I’d be willing to wager that WWE will still have more people in the stadium in April that UFC will in December no matter the card for UFC. The only way that WWE can fumble that one is to plan short-term and not listen to their fan base.”
