– Within WWE there are concern for WrestleMania 30 ticket sales, the event is not yet officially sold out. There are, however, 9,916 of the 55,000-plus ticket holders who have their seats available at Stubhub.com. Basically, this means many of those tickets were purchased strictly for investment purposes.
The nosebleed seats are going for $46.90, and you can still buy two front-row seats for $13,000 a piece.
That is a high price for wrestling tickets, throw in the fact of plane tickets and hotel expenses. That is the reason you have to be a very dedicated WWE fan.
– Last Friday’s WWE SmackDown broadcast scored a 1.98 (2.0) cable rating. That is down from the previous week’s 2.15 (2.2) cable rating.
Smackdown last week was really good from the start to the ending of the show. It showcased not only younger talent, but pushing of the guard within WWE. Cesaro winning in the main showed that WWE might just be focusing their attention on the younger WWE superstars and molding them for the future. Plans change all the time in WWE and defiantly inside Vince McMahon’s head.
