WWE just held WrestleMania 37, and they claimed a sell-out despite the reality of having unsold tickets. PCO has much loftier goals for ROH.

While speaking to Wrestling Inc, PCO explained his idea to sell 80,000 tickets for an ROH show at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal. He believes that ROH can pull it off and even set about 25,000 people around ringside.

“I know I want to sell out the Olympic Stadium. It’s about 80,000 people in Montreal. Those things are pretty big, and that’s what I wanted to do before I really retired. We’ll see. I got my ideas on how to accomplish that. We sold out with New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor, the Madison Square Garden, in about 20 minutes. All the fanbase there, you can send them first. My thinking is that if we can sell those 20,000 or 25,000 seats around the ring. Let’s say in a couple of days or a couple of hours, people coming from Boston, New York, Vermont, just the northeast, plus Quebec is big too. Six, seven hours away that they can come with their car. The rest of the tickets, 20 dollars apiece, or 25 dollars, big tailgate party.”

“Get a partnership with the city, a partnership with the mayor, a partnership with the Olympic Stadium because it’s always empty. I think there’s a lot of opportunities there, and I think the people are ready for a big show. I’m hoping to put that together in 2022 or 2023. We’ll see how everything evolves. I think a good two, three solid months, you let the ticket go, people would get pretty fired up about it.”

As the world opens up again the possibility of an event drawing 80,000 live fans isn’t impossible. The thought of it being an ROH event is a bit more far-fetched. You never know what can happen in pro wrestling. The past year has taught us to expected the unexpected. Still, ROH might need to set their goal a little bit lower until they actually book the stadium.
