WWE has a lot of things going for it as the company is currently on a hot streak. They had announced Clash at the Castle recently, but it appears WWE is now under fire for the overpriced tickets.

As previously reported, WWE announced that the Clash at the Castle Premium Live Event, which will be taking place on June 15th this year. It will be held in the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.

According to BBC, wrestling fans are expressing outrage over “extortionate” ticket prices for Clash at the Castle. The cheapest tickets start at £300, while premium seats exceed £2,000, putting the event out of reach for many.

Several fans shared their frustration with BBC Scotland News, pointing out that they are being priced out of the event and missing out on the opportunity to see Scottish wrestling talents like Piper Niven, Alba Fyre, Nikki Cross, and Drew McIntyre.


Lewis McLean, an 18-year-old wrestling fan from Glasgow, hoped to attend the show with his father, Craig, but the ticket prices made it impossible.

“To be able to get one of these live events in Scotland is quite a big deal to us,” he explained. However, after calculating that it would cost £900 for him, his father, and his cousin to attend with the cheapest tickets, he concluded, “It’s just far too much.”

Journalist Ross Brady, a dedicated WWE fan who has traveled to various events, including WrestleMania in New Orleans, also expressed disappointment. Although he lives just 20 minutes from the venue, he won’t go to the arena.

“I’ll have to watch it on TV—save myself some money. I’m just not paying extortionate prices.”

The OVO Hydro venue can accommodate 14,300 people, but despite this capacity, hundreds of seats remain unsold, indicating that the high ticket prices have actually prevented many from attending the show. We’ll have to see if WWE will decide to lower the ticket prices in the end.
