It has been announced that WrestleMania 29 is officially sold out. This is the first time since 2007 that a WrestleMania event has sold out weeks in advance.
More tickets will be released after WWE finalizes the production set up for the event, as they will have to work out how much room the overhead canopy plus the huge WrestleMania 29 stage set will take up.
But as of right now, you can no longer buy tickets for the show unless someone is willing to sell/trade their tickets online. The live gate for the show has already been tallied, and WWE sold an impressive $11 million worth of tickets already. The event has already out-grossed WrestleMania 28 in terms of ticket sales. WrestleMania 28 set a new record at the time, selling $8.9 million at the live gate.
The success of WrestleMania 29 selling out so quickly is due to a number of different factors. One of them is the fact that it’s being held in New Jersey at Metlife Stadium. New Jersey is an easy city to travel to, and lots of rabid wrestling fans live in this area already.
Another factor is the highly anticipated rematch between The Rock and John Cena. Last year’s event was also headlined by these two and it became one the most talked-about matches since Rock faced Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 18.
Let’s not forget, WrestleMania 29 also marks the WrestleMania return of Brock Lesnar. Lesnar’s last appearance at WrestleMania was in 2004. Since then, his fan base has rapidly grown thanks to his UFC success.
Fans should continue to check Ticketmaster in early April as we expect additional tickets to become available after we finalize the staging and set.
