The seats will be similar to the ringside seats WWE has at their pay-per-views. The chair will feature the WrestleMania logo and photos of past and present WWE Superstars.
WWE is doing the promotion to reward fans who purchase the pay-per-views because beginning this month with the Royal Rumble, prices for WWE pay-per-views go up $5.
