Update: WretleTix has confirmed on Twitter that Dave Meltzer’s report was inaccurate, adding that the event has sold far more than 7k tickets already. That said, they acknowledged that WWE has a deal for tickets for the event.

Original: WWE has been on a roll since last year, as the company is truly in a boom period right now. Anything the company does turns to gold as it continues to sell out Premium Live Events and house shows every time. The company will also turn to Australia for the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event and it appears the company is struggling to sell tickets for the event.

The Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event will be taking place in Perth, Australia, on February 24 at the Opus Stadium, as fans are extremely excited for the event already. The stadium has a capacity of 70,000 but WWE is expected to use 55,000 for the event.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that WWE has started minor ticket discounts with a free ticket with three tickets purchased, as the show has sold 7,805 tickets so far. It is to be noted that tickets went on sale to the general public on October 29.

WWE’s Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event will be providing a $33 million boost to the Western Australian economy.
