WWE Struggling To Sell Tickets For Network Event In Chicago

WWE is gearing up for their next two special events on their streaming service.

First, the sports entertainment company will hold their NXT TakeOver: Chicago event on Saturday, June 16, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena and then the following night, the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event will take place.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that NXT TakeOver: Chicago has only sold around 7,000 tickets and is struggling to sell tickets.

Keep in mind that this is nowhere near capacity in the Allstate Arena. It was noted in this report that there are very few secondary market tickets sold.

The longtime pro wrestling journalist broke it down by noting that 81% of tickets sold for TakeOver were sold to residents of Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin. Thus, this means that not many WWE fans are flying in to watch the show.

Finally, it was noted that Money in the Bank is selling fine and will likely be nearly sold out.
