WWE WrestleMania 37 Ticket Sales Update, Start Time, Night 1 Main Event Plans, PPV Providers

Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that as of this past Thursday, WWE still had around 1,000 tickets for sale for Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 on April 10th and around 809 tickets for Night 2 on April 11th. Meltzer reported that WWE officials originally expected for WrestleMania 37 to do a UFC 261-like immediate sellout and would then release additional tickets for sale afterwards, which did not happen leading to some disappointment within the company.

In regards to the event’s start time, Meltzer reported that this year’s event is currently scheduled to start later than usual at 8PM EST. WrestleMania 37’s kickoff show reportedly will be one hour in length and starting at 7PM EST instead of the usual two-hour format for WrestleMania events in recent years.

In regards to the current main event plans for Night 1 of WrestleMania 37, Meltzer reported that many of the internal rundown cards for the event have the SmackDown Women’s Championship match of Bianca Belair vs. Sasha Banks listed as the main event for that night.

Besides NBC’s Peacock and the WWE Network, Meltzer reported that WrestleMania 37 will also be available to watch on several traditional cable pay-per-view providers. ATT U-verse reportedly is currently charging $35 per night, InDemand is charging $29.99 per night, DirectTV is charging $34.95 per night, and Vubquity is charging $29.97 per night. On the high end of pricing, Dish Network reportedly is charging $59.99 for each night of the event.
