April 3rd 2016 could be a historic night for World Wrestling Entertainment. There is huge expectation that this years WrestleMania can break its current attendance record of 93,127 fans and exceed 100,000 fans packing the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. With just over a month left to go before the event, the Wrestling News Observer has revealed how many Wrestlemania 32 tickets have been sold thus how close WWE are to reaching that goal.
The venue of Wrestlemania 32 is the AT&T Stadium; during American Football weekends has a capacity of 80,000 people. Given the turf space, the capacity increases to 105,000, a figure WWE really wants to aim towards. Based upon reports by this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE have sold just under 70,000 tickets for WrestleMania 32.
Monday nights huge episode of Raw, has hopefully given WWE the required. Shane McMahon made a shocking and unexpected return following a 6 year absenc. Vince McMahon revealed that Shane O Mac will face the Deadman, The Undertaker at WrestleMania inside Hell In A Cell. A move that has certainly turned heads, creating a stir. Dean Ambrose stepped up several gears to kick start his feud with Brock Lesnar, with the two battling in a No Holds Barred match.
Given, WWE have only just started announcing the card, just under 70,000 isn’t too bad. WWE do have a long way to go in order to fill up the AT&T Stadium come April. Given the number of have name injuries and lets be honest a real lack of a buzz and momentum about Wrestlemania there is no surprise WWE still have 30,000 seats to fill. Generally attendance figures are massivley down for TV, PPV and live shows as revealed back earlier this month.
Regardless, WWE always pull out the stops for WrestleMania. Monday night really helped matters with WWE moving in the right direction. Let’s hope the momentum continues and WWE are able to fill up the AT&T Stadium.
Down below is the updated card for the event:
– Hell in a Cell Match: Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker – if Shane wins he gets control of WWE, but if The Undertaker wins then Vince McMahon gets full control.
– No Holds Barred Match: Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar.
