Last year’s WrestleMania was reportedly sold out a few weeks before the event. With WrestleMania 30 just two days away, the show has yet to sell out.
Tickets are still available for the biggest WWE pay-per-view of 2014. For the first time in history, New Orleans will host WrestleMania. The event is set to take place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which has a capacity of just over 72,000. In 2013, WrestleMania 29 drew 80,676 fans at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
Six weeks ago, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that over 55,000 tickets had been sold. However, some of the best seats can still be had on the Friday before the event. A floor seat worth over $2,000 is still available at ticketmaster.com. Entering WrestleMania 30 weekend, the cheapest tickets in the building are gone. The least expensive seats that can be had at face value are going for just over $190 in the 100 Level.
Fans looking for cheap tickets, though, can find plenty on the secondary ticket market. At StubHub, the worst seats in the house can be had for as little as $14.
As the seats get closer to the ring, the prices listed begin to reflect those of a Super Bowl. The most expensive ticket on StubHub is being offered for $7,702. Three other pairs have been listed at $5,000 or more.
WrestleMania 30 is, arguably, the biggest event in WWE history. It’s the first PPV, since the launch of the WWE Network. The star power will be able to compete with any WrestleMania of years past. Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin will be returning, though they’re not scheduled to participate in a match. The likes of The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Triple H and Daniel Bryan will headline the main events. There has been no announcement of the Rock’s involvement, but rumors indicate that he might make an appearance.
The episode of “Monday Night Raw,” following WrestleMania, has become one of the biggest shows each year. Tickets for that event sold out immediately.
