A new report from PWInsider notes that WWE is “ecstatic” with early ticket sales for WrestleMania Hollywood, especially for Night 2.
WWE had major success with WrestleMania 39 tickets going on sale to the general public this past Friday. Michael Cole announced on Friday’s SmackDown that WWE had the highest first day of ticket sales in the history of WrestleMania, but he did not elaborate on how many tickets were sold.
The Ticketmaster pre-sale for WrestleMania 39 ended at midnight on Thursday, and tickets officially went on sale to the general public at 1pm ET this afternoon. WWE offered single-night tickets for WrestleMania 39 Night 1 and Night 2, plus combo tickets good for both nights. It was noted by WrestleTix that the combo tickets were essentially sold out on the first day, unless more end up being added at a later date. Going into the weekend there were around 2,300 tickets left for Night 1, and less than 1,200 tickets left for Night 2.
WWE pushed the combo tickets in a significant way during the pre-sale, and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that more than 10,000 combo tickets for both nights were sold during the pre-sale. It was also reported that around 1,000 tickets were sold individually for each night during the pre-sale. The combo tickets were described as reasonably priced, while the individual tickets ran much higher, described as ridiculously priced.
The SoFi Stadium seating arrangement on Ticketmaster is currently a limited setup for WrestleMania Hollywood, so they could always open up the rest of the stadium and offer more tickets to fans. SoFi has an official capacity of 70,240 seats, but that can be expanded up to 100,240 seats for major events.
WWE’s WrestleMania 39 is scheduled for Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2, 2023, live from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, which is in the Los Angeles area.
