Huge Backstage Update On The Initial Ticket Sales For WrestleMania 38


We reported earlier this week here on eWn that the initial ticket sales for WrestleMania 38 were much lower than what WWE expected. WrestleMania 38 will be a two-night event that will be taking place on April 2nd and April 3rd, 2022.

According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WrestleMania 38 is the highest-priced show in wrestling history. Many people within WWE were disappointed with the early ticket sale numbers, with many blaming it on the prices for tickets.

As of this writing, WWE has sold over 75,000 tickets for the event at AT&T Stadium in Irving, TX. This includes a combined total for both nights. So even with the higher priced tickets, that’s still the most tickets WWE has ever sold for an event in its first few days. The show currently has around 37,500 tickets out for each night. There are still some seats left on the floor and plenty of seats remain elsewhere in the venue.

WWE officials worked with the AT&T Stadium board to be able to host the event over the course of two days and get the insurance protection for both days for less money than one. WWE also made a deal with the Dallas Mavericks to have their April 1st home game be an away game, so WWE could hold SmackDown at the American Airlines Center.

As far as the secondary market is concerned, scalpers bought 7,470 tickets for night one and 7,884 tickets for night two. In comparison to previous WrestleMania events, scalpers bought 25,000-30,000 tickets. The get-in prices are $38 for night one and $40 for night two. As of this writing, WrestleMania 38 currently has 43,000 tickets left to sell. Of course, the event is still several months away.

AT&T Stadium brought in 80,709 fans, with 79,800 of those paid, for WrestleMania 32 on April 3, 2016. At the time, WWE claimed there were 101,763 fans in attendance but they always inflate their numbers for ‘Mania. WrestleMania 32 generated revenue of $17.3 million.
