— According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dragon Gate has seen a “modest” increase in subscriptions despite running only a few empty arena events during the pandemic. In addition to that, their merchandise sales have had an “unbelievable” increase.
As of this writing, there is no word on when Dragon Gate will be able to bring back Larry Dallas or Lenny Leonard for English commentary. This is due to the ongoing travel restrictions. For now, Jae Church has been calling the shows on his own. He has been at those shows live.
— The Palace at Auburn Hills, the former home of the Detroit Pistons and the venue that hosted WWF SummerSlam 1993, has been torn down. It was open from 1988 to 2017, and hosted wrestling events until 2005. It was demolished on July 11th.
The venue hosted three WWF PPVs, including Summerslam on August 30, 1993. WWF eventually stopped using it once the venue began to host WCW events as well. WCW would end up selling out the building three times, including over 17,000 for an episode of Nitro and two World War III PPVs.
