WrestleMania was a big event and they had a special set-up for MetLife Stadium. Unfortunately, that meant that some fans were literately blinded or blocked from seeing anything going on in the ring.
We have been contacted by several fans about this issue and seen even more evidence of it online. One fan paid $600 for his seat and then WWE ended up extending the massive curved screen so their view was 100% blocked. This guy couldn’t even watch a screen in the stadium unless he stood up from his seat and turned around.
Other fans were blinded by a giant light projected by WWE to provide ambiance for the event. Those lights were meant to show off the audience as Mike Johnson put it on PW Insider Elite audio to essentially make fans extras for the event that they paid hundreds of dollars to see. He also claimed that if fans would have contacted MetLife Stadium’s customer service during the event that a representative would come to their seat and if they agreed with them then comp tickets were issued for a lower level. Nobody we asked said this ever happened to them. The only thing we heard was that their complaints were ignored.
The huge pillars holding up the canopy were also an issue. You can get an idea of how big those pillars were if you watch The Miz vs Shane McMahon as they battled next to them. Those pillars blocked the view of anyone trying to watch the action from any corner of the ring.
We have been told that WWE is not issuing refunds and giving fans the runaround. We were told tickets that were purchased had no notice of being an “obstructed view” especially the one where WWE blocked their entire line of sight with the massive WrestleMania set.
Now a lot of fans have a memory of watching a big screen in Metlife Stadium for over seven hours and WWE doesn’t seem to be sweating it.
