Val Venis-WWE Update, Raw Attracting Older Audience, More



– Attendance figures for initial shows of WWE’s European tour were: Nov. 5 in Cardiff, Wales, was 4,900 (sold out) for $311,003; Nov. 6 in Birmingham, was 10,533 paying $578,608; Nov. 7 in Nottingham was 6,885 paying $331,744; Nov. 7 in Glasgow was 5,050 (sold out) paying $361,344.

– Thirty percent of viewers of recent episodes of Monday Night Raw have been over the age of fifty.

– Sean Morley (a/k/a Val Venis) will not be returning to WWE as a performer. He was on hand for the company’s “Old School” episode of Raw and was trained to be a producer. It was said to be more of tryout to see if he’s adequate enough to be a producer now.

The former WWE Intercontinental Champion was telling promoters he was going on WWE’s recent tour of Europe. It is unclear whether Venis attended the television tapings, but he worked a show for NWS over the weekend and is once again accepting independent bookings.
