WWE recently put tickets on sale for their two-night WrestleMania 38 extravaganza in Dallas, Texas. The dual events take place in the massive AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. With two nights and a staggering number of seats in the building, the promotion may have trouble selling out their biggest event of the year.

Dave Meltzer described the ticket sales woes on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio. He said tickets aren’t moving as briskly as the company would expect. It’s far from a sell out at this point.

“Mania tickets, I don’t have a number but you could tell from the push really hard and everything like that [that they are] far far far far far from a sellout. I didn’t expect it would be this quick. The first time they went to AT&T Stadium, it actually didn’t sell out until a week out and that was for one show…I know that the number was lower than they expected. It’s funny because when I talked with them a couple of weeks ago, [they said] because we’re gonna do two shows, we’re gonna make it pricewise easier. And they did not do that and that may have been a mistake. I mean the price is really high, high enough to scare people away. There is a certain thing that you can charge more money for WrestleMania than any other show but there is a limit on everything as far as how much you can charge.”

He said the high price might be scaring people away. Therefore, WWE has already begun lowering the cost of certain tickets. He thinks the company will adjust after the hardcore fans who will pay anything have secured their seats.


“I know that some tickets have already been lowered. It may have been one of those things where they start off with super high prices figuring that the people who really want tickets bad will pay those prices and there will be a lot of them and there were and then they start lowering it afterwards. So that maybe how it all turns out…”

WrestleMania 38 will take place on April 2nd and 3rd, 2022. The event is expected to be headlined by Roman Reigns, likely in match against Brock Lesnar. Early rumors that The Rock would be wrestling Reigns at the show have been debunked in a Ringside News exclusive.

Do you think WrestleMania 38 will sell out both nights? Let us know in the comments!
