In the lawsuit filed by WWE in California to prevent the selling of undisclosed merchandise during WrestleMania 31 week, it was revealed that WWE is labeling cities with school letter grades.
Courtesy of Chris “Mookie” Harrington, below is the list of cities WWE has labeled. It’s worth noting that some cities are listed in multiple categories, as some are for when WWE visits a city for a TV taping, and others are for non-televised live events. “A” cities are the biggest cities WWE runs, while “C” cities are the smallest.
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
