WWE Is Handing Out Letter Grades To Every City They Visit And Providence, RI & Boston, MA Both Got A’s

Letter Grades
Starting 6/28/15, WWE also assigns letter codes to each city (A/B+/B/C).
It appears it’s an indication of the relative overall drawing power of the city based on the last visit.
(If we assume that the percentage is in relation to the overall building’s capacity.)

A: 70 examples (minimum: 3,500; maximum 15,913) – average: 9,235
B+: 32 examples (minimum: 3,122; maximum 14,481) – average: 7,608
B: 48 examples (minimum: 2,626; maximum 12,717) – average: 6,496
C: 61 examples (minimum: 2,230; maximum 6,996) – average 4,546
Overall Average: 7,002

(Same city may appear in more than category. This is because different letter grades are assigned on different trips – often because one time it’s a TV taping and another time it’s a house show.)

Chuffed

This isn’t a surprise by any means, but it’s nice to see that Boston and Providence get the love they deserve. Over the last five years, my friends and I have been to a Royal Rumble, Survivor Series and Money in the Bank in Boston and every crowd has been hot fire. Not mention last year’s Raw in Providence where Daniel Bryan turned on Bray Wyatt in the steel cage and really catapulted the YES! movement to the next level. I’ll be attending Smackdown in Providence next week and although it’s not a live show I guarantee the crowd will be loud and engaging. Sucks for cities that got a C, but I’m proud to be apart of two crowds that the WWE recognizes as A+ players.
