WWE FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN/FOX: Smackdown in Lyon shatters records for highest-grossing Smackdown event ever

Posted on 5/04/124 by Colin Vassallo

Last night’s Smackdown at the LDLC Arena became the highest-
grossing Smackdown event ever in the history of WWE, even
beating the one in London last year on the eve of Money in
the Bank.

Smackdown in Philadelphia on the eve of WrestleMania XL held
the record for the highest-grossing show but this one
eclipsed that one as well. The London Smackdown had a gate
of over $1,850,000 million.

The show was jam packed with well over 12,000 fans in the
arena who paid a dear price to get in. The fans showed up
and were loud all night, making it one of the best
atmospheres at a live television show in years.

WWE has yet to reveal the exact numbers of gate money but
that is likely coming next week.
