Ticket Sale Update For WrestleMania 39 Weekend
There’s a lot of WWE content coming to Los Angeles during WrestleMania 39 weekend and there is a new update on how ticket sales are going.
WrestleMania became a two-night event starting in 2020 when the event took place in front of no fans at the WWE Performance Center. For the next two years, WWE decided to keep the two-night WrestleMania concept and it’s happening again this year at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on April 1st and 2nd.
In addition to WM, WWE is also running a Smackdown/Hall of Fame combo show on Friday, March 31st and there’s NXT Stand & Deliver taking place on April 1st with an early 10 AM local start time (that’s 1 PM ET) – both of those events are at the Crypto.com Arena. Following two nights of WrestleMania 39, there’s also the Raw after WrestleMania on April 3rd, which is also at the Crypto.com Arena.
Here’s an update on how ticket sales are going courtesy of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer.
“The Smackdown/Hall of Fame show has 14,231 tickets with 13,718 paid. There were 836 tickets left at press time so that will be a sellout.”
“WrestleMania on 4/1 is at 56,242 and 4/2 is at 56,805. They are set up for 57,776 right now but that capacity will change as more tickets are sold. They can legit get 65,000 with a normal set-up and expand to 95,000 if needed, which won’t be needed. They’ve already thrown around 80,000 as the figure they will announce.”
“The get-in price has dropped a little this past week to $50 for night one and $70 for night two, so there’s no late surge of ticket demand this week. That’s nothing negative as the overall two shows will be the most successful week for big show business in history and easily be the most-viewed WrestleManias to date.”
Elsewhere in the newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote about how Vince McMahon told him many years ago that the numbers they announce at WrestleMania “are for entertainment purposes only.” What a maneuver.
