AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling will collaborate for the massive “Forbidden Door” pay-per-view on June 26th. The huge international event was expected to be a hot ticket. After this morning’s presale, most of those tickets are gone.
Several fans reported that their attempts to purchase seats for Forbidden Door were unsuccessful. The WrestleTix Twitter account, which follows how sales to different wrestling events are doing, reported that the entire initial allotment sold out almost instantly. The limited view seats are also gone.
“This one is an instant sell out.
Stay tuned as some sections they are holding back on could open up (but they need some seats for the general public on-sale). As of now the setup will be in the neighborhood of 14K (unless they expand this map and open limited view seats)”
The highly anticipated event takes place in Chicago, which has proven to be one of AEW’s strongest markets. The companies decided to book the United Center, which is where CM Punk made his AEW debut. The move looks like it will pay off.
AEW also had strong first-day ticket sales for the Double or Nothing pay-per-view in Las Vegas. For fans who were hoping to get seats during the general on-sale, it’s bad news. For Tony Khan and New Japan Pro Wrestling, things couldn’t have gone better.
