WWE is holding their next Survivor Series event in Brooklyn on November 21st, but fans aren’t breaking down the box office door to snag tickets. In fact, the turnout has been a bit disappointing so far.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that the November 21st Survivor Series event for Barclays Center has only sold around 6,835 tickets were sold, but fans aren’t the ones buying a lot of those tickets. The secondary market is trying to cash in, but they might find an issue with overall interest.

It was noted that of the tickets sold, about 44.8% of those tickets are now on the secondary market. Sites like Stub Hub and other scalper markets are listing those tickets. If real fans don’t buy those tickets then it would leave those seats empty for the event despite the ticket being sold.

I’m still at a loss regarding Survivor Series at the Barclays Center on 11/21. As of press time they were at 6,835, but as of earlier in the week it was 4,700 of that paid (it’s probably a little higher now but not much more than a few hundred) and of those, 2,107 were secondary market tickets which means 44.8 percent of ticket sales went to secondary market brokers.


It was further noted that nearly half of the tickets sold going to the secondary market is “unusually high,” specially for a WWE pay-per-view in the NYC market. That market usually sees lower secondary market buys.

The current “get-in” price for Survivor Series is $52, and they have a lot of work to do in regards to filling up Barclays Center. We’ll have to see if they can fill the venue, but it should be noted that WWE sold out that same building nearly instantly for SummerSlam in the past.
