There is already great anticipation for the 38th edition of WrestleMania, which will be staged at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington (Texas) next year. For WWE it is a return to origins, having hosted the greatest WrestleMania ever in this stadium, at least from the point of view of tickets sold.
The Stamford federation hosted over 100,000 spectators at WrestleMania 32, which is why the company's goal is to replicate the extraordinary 2016 figure in 2022. According to Dave Meltzer, a well-known correspondent for the 'Wrestling Observer', ticket sales for WrestleMania 38 it still would not live up to expectations.
At WrestleMania 32, WWE received exceptional feedback, although performers such as Seth Rollins, John Cena and Randy Orton were all in the pits due to injury. In that circumstance, it was the presence of Shane McMahon that made the difference.
Vince's son had returned to WWE after nearly seven years of absence, a factor that helped sell tickets in the last two months before the 'Showcase of the Immortals' The company could take a similar approach, but a possible main event between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar would risk not being enough to sell 100,000 tickets.
WrestleMania 38 is just over six months away, and plans will soon be in action for WWE's biggest show of the coming year. WrestleMania 38 will emanate live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It has heavily been rumored to be the year that The Undertaker finally takes his place in the WWE Hall of Fame.
The latest news on WrestleMania 38
"These are numbers that must be taken with a grain of salt, but I can tell you with relative certainty that we are still a long way from selling out for WrestleMania 38" - revealed Meltzer.
“At WrestleMania 32, which took place at Arlington's AT&T Stadium, there was a real surge in ticket sales in the last few weeks leading up to the event. For the moment, the number of coupons sold is less than what they would have expected ”- he added.
Meltzer also addressed the issue of prices: “From my point of view, they have set prices that are too high. They are so tall that people probably got scared. Fans are willing to spend more money to see a show like WrestleMania live, but there is a limit to everything." Big E recently reached the top of the mountain when he cashed in his Money in the Bank contract to become WWE Champion.
