WWE reportedly struggling to sell tickets for Hell In A Cell

The ticket sales for the upcoming Hell In A Cell are not going well with the company struggling to sell the tickets for the same. WWE realized the fact within the first week the tickets went on sale. Unfortunately, the situation remains the same with only a few weeks left for the event.

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, only six of the 22 upper decks are for sale and three lower deck section of the hard camera are not on sale. Moreover, there were 781 secondary market tickets that begin with a price of $43.

WWE Hell In A Cell is slated to take place at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California on October 6.

    And AEW couldn’t sell 5,000 tickets for Fight for the Fallen or Fyter fest. Their sell out rate so far is 50/50.

    So far, they’ve only managed to sell out in huge wrestling cities, which, let’s face it, Sacramento is not, and WWE has already managed to sell more than 5,000 there, by my maths.

    I’m not saying that there aren’t a lot of people who just cost, but when you look at the response Cesaro gets in the UK and then Vince does nothing with him. You have Rusev get over huge and Vince does punishes him for it. Zack Ryder goes out on his own to try and save his career and Vince punishes him for it.. EC3 was arguably the face of Impact and now he’s not even on Main Event. Vince is absolutely a HUGE part of the problem. Vince wants to tell us who to like and how much to like them and if we start to get behind him too much, well, then he strikes the guy down.

    This isn’t a Vince problem, it’s a company wide problem. To sum up the entire company’s attitude, Shawn Michaels used to tell fans to stop complaining because they were just going to be back every Monday anyway. The company as a whole felt they didn’t have to try hard since you were going to watch them no matter what. Everyone has been in denial and now the chickens have come home to roost. It needs to be a system wide change for things to improve.

    AEW didn’t announce much of a card before selling out All Out or Double or Nothing. One can argue that this arena is larger that the arenas that held those events. But it still doesn’t erase the fact that WWE has trouble selling tickets. Heck, they even had trouble filling the Garden for TV last week.

    Maybe if Vince didn’t hold back his talent and let them become stars like Rock and Austin he wouldn’t be having these problems. I know Austin and Rock are a rarity, but Vince actively holds back his talent because he’s afraid of losing them to Hollywood. Guess what, Vince? If you treat them right and pay then what they’re worth, maybe they won’t leave. And if you are the creative genius you claim to be, it won’t matter if they do because you’ll just make another one.

    PPV events typically sell out prior to the event card but these Special Match PPV’s are worse than a generic PPV because they force Hell in Cell, instead of organically getting a feud to that point.

    A card announcement can be a game changer as far as ticket sales go. The only PPVs that will probably sell regardless are WM and the Rumble.

    I mean, they haven’t even announced the card yet, to be fair.
