* Does crowd response have something to do with how frequently WWE visits a town? Absolutely. Toronto is a perfect example. When WWE visited this past March, the first time since Smackdown's Edge Appreciation Night in September 2011, the crowd for a live event was large (7,000-plus) and loud the entire night. Scarcity does play a factor. During the Attitude Era, WWE would visit the Toronto three-to-six times a year and of course in the 1980s, TV tapings would take place monthly. Star power and storyline interest certainly play a factor in crowd responses being steadily loud during the eras of more frequent visits ("Stone Cold" Steve Austin was being cheered by everyone in 1998, no matter how frequently a town was visited). "Starved" WWE audiences outside of North America that rarely see live events, particularly in countries that are getting WWE for the first time (Abu Dhabi a couple months ago, Russia this week, China a couple years ago) will experience unique and fully invested WWE audiences.
