According to Michael Cole, there were 16,160 fans at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York for Monday’s RAW. That was a legitimate sellout.
As seen during the opening segment on Monday’s WWE RAW broadcast, Stephanie McMahon “fired” Mick Foley as the General Manager. Foley opened the show and revealed that he was taking a leave of absence after his actions last week, but then changed his mind. Foley claimed he was given cue cards before he walked out and began to take shots at Triple H and Stephanie McMahon before Stephanie came out and fired him.
For those unaware, Foley has been planning to take time off in order to undergo hip replacement surgery.
