Taped Raw/Smackdown Attendance Figures; Marty Scurll Contract Status

-- Attendance for both of WWE's taped Raw and Smackdown at the end of December in Detroit and Pittsburgh drew strong figures. Both shows were attended by approximately 10,500 fans - an impressive number especially for Smackdown which often times hovers around the 5000 mark. The likely difference is that these shows were held immediately after Christmas (traditionally the best week to draw fans) and it was on a Saturday night compared to the normal live Tuesdays.

-- Marty Scurll's contract with ROH ends at the end of the 2019 and the expectation is that he will be leaving and joining All Elite Wrestling, reports the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. However, Scurll is expected to be in demand at that time, with ROH not wanting to lose him, AEW wanting to sign him and WWE very likely to show interest as well.
