They’re running out of time. We are just over six weeks away from WrestleMania 36 and the build is in full swing. With so many things left to set up, we still need to get a few points set up. This includes several angles and matches, but at the same time, WWE needs to make sure there are no empty seats left in the stadium. That is one of the most important things, but we aren’t quite there yet.
One of the most important things about WrestleMania is the venue. Without the right stadium, the show is going to be hurt a bit as the atmosphere and energy can carry a show that much higher. There are several stadiums around the country and a lot of them are able to offer quite a rather unique atmosphere. This year’s edition will be held in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, but how are the tickets selling?
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WrestleMania 36 is not sold out as of February 21, but ticket sales are going well with only a few thousand tickets still available. The rest of the shows over WrestleMania weekend are not doing as well, with several of the shows having sections still unavailable, meaning there are seats left in the rest of the arena. Only Takeover has the full arena available at the moment but it is not sold out either. There is still a chance for all of the shows to sell out, or at least sell more tickets.
WrestleMania is hyped a long way off. Check out some of the earliest material:
Opinion: I’m not sure how much this is going to mean as there are still six weeks left before the show. How many people are going to be convinced to come to the show later? Or maybe just haven’t gotten around to getting their tickets yet? As long as the stadium is mostly sold out, everything should be fine and it’s not like a few empty seats are going to be noticed in a 70,000 person seat stadium.
