Planning Wrestlemania 2019

This is a stadium show and due to the pillars which are a huge obstruction there will be thousands of obstructed seats which still cost a fortune.

Last year in Orlando the four of us hasd mid range tickets costing £270 each, wonderful view of the stage but only a quarter of the ring was visible to us.  We put in a serious complaint against wwe who were totally in the wrong for not listing any obstructions on the original seating plan, we were refunded every penny for the mania seats and given 4 tickets each for any future wwe UK shows of our choice, which was very decent of them.

So basically aim to buy tickets in the lower bowl which are central to the ring, should set you back around 300 quid.  

Thanks, would central 200 level seats be in around that price bracket?

If you're willing to wait, it's easy to get a train back to NYC through Secaucas Junction but, like mim says, the queues are long. 

I'm fine with waiting. And after doing a little research the subway seems to be the easiest option for getting to the Barclays center is this correct?

Yeah, it's piss easy to do that. The subway station is right opposite the Barclays Center entrance so, whilst it'll mean queueing (which you have to do anyway, there's only one main set of doors, a bit like the MEN) it's really easy to do.

There's also a Subway station about 10 minutes walk away on a different line, it's usually less busy after events because most tourists don't know it's there. I'll check the name later.

Did the Barclays and its literally outside the doors. It's easy to get back to where you need too.

Hi guys,

Helpful thread. My mate and I are going to do WM next year, first time going - looking forward to it. Been to NYC before, so know a lot of the decent places to stay. Going to attempt to book flights in the next month or two, and then reserve refundable accommodation online. Looks like it'll be much cheaper than going down the tickets/hotel package but just obviously a little more risky on the ticket front.

What I'm wondering is how difficult will it be to get tickets online? Presuming due to the size of NYC, and how easy it is to travel there from all over America, as well as elsewhere in the world this will be a pretty hot ticket? My main concern ticket wise is actually NXT and Raw, with the much smaller arena. Will it likely be pot luck on getting a ticket here or is it not too bad as long as you're prepared? Final question, is it US only for buying tickets on ticketmaster at first? If so, presumably you can just use a VPN and order an e-ticket to get around this?

Cheers in advance!

You may need a VPN and tickets will be very hard to get for Raw/NXT. All depends what you want but personally I feel these will be harder than normal to get as Barclays always sells out quickly, let alone a Mania related one with package holders.

If your happy to pay above & beyond then stubhub will mean you get tickets, but then you may as well go the package route as think tickets will be mega high. 

What makes this Mania trickier than normal is because its in New York (well Raw/NXT) and Barclays sells very quickly at the best of times let alone for the hottest Raw of the year with package holders & international fans. In previous years they do sometimes release some tickets late on during Mania week but no chance of that happening for this.

You don’t need a VPN to buy tickets for US events, but if there’s not an e-ticket option you’ll have to select them for collection.

I’m only going to try and get Mania tickets, as it’s kind of morphed into a proper holiday for me and the missus.

Just hoping there’s some decent tickets left when they go on sale, willing to pay but just unsure how many are swept up by travel packages.

Cheers for the feedback. What are we talking for the packages - roughly? Seen around 999$ being banded about for 4 nights hotels and tickets? We're really only thinking NXT, Mania and Raw. So wouldn't be too bothered with tickets for the likes of HoF, axcess, Smackdown etc. Plus, probably looking at going for around 7 nights (make the most of it), so will need to get additional accommodation. 

Depends how much we're talking on the likes of Stubhub, guess we'll just have to wait and see. Expected getting tickets to Raw/NXT will be tough given that Barclays only holds what, 19k-ish? Presuming Mania itself isn't too bad given the size of stadium?

I've got a VPN if need be, plus a mate who stays in the US so could use his address if need be. Was only wondering to be prepared in advance! 

You can't persuade the missis to go to another few nights of wrestling!? 😂

Bear in mind that if the price is stated as "From $999" that it will be $999 per person based on 4 people purchasing and sharing the same travel package.

As you've said you're only going with one friend, it'll be more like $1200-$1400 per person for a 3 night package, or closer to $1600-1700 per person for a 4 night package.

If you're going alone like I am, you have to pay for the whole thing by yourself, so in my case 5 night package will be setting me back $2500 perhaps even more.

If this wasn't a hot ticket, I'd take a chance and book everything individually but as it'll be my first ever Mania, I'm gonna have to pay the price if I want to do everything WWE related over the course of the week.

Basically, the more people you share with, the cheaper it will be per person.

Yeah, realistically with the pricing I reckon we're going to just take a chance that we can get tickets when they go on sale as the package will probably put us above budget. Not too bothered seats wise for Raw or NXT either, just two together (or even pretty close), only really Mania we would like half decent seats (e.g. not up in the clouds!).

Question for those who've been to Mania before and booked everything separately.

I'm hearing lots of rumors that general sale tickets for Mania will be on sale sometime in November, I reckon by then I'll have £1800-£2000 saved up. Is it realistically possible to get hotel, flights, HoF, NXT, Mania, Raw and 1 or 2 General Admission Axxess tickets within that budget? I don't think I'm gonna be able to stretch to a travel package.

I'm thinking I'll probably need a bit more cash, or I'll have to skip Raw or Axxess to stay within my means.

Yes you'll have plenty to cover your trip.  Get your hotel locked in now though with booking.com on a no prepayment booking.  I've currently got a Manhattan room double room booked for 5 nights at £770 and another in New Jersey at £570.  Not decided yet which one I'll go with and I'll continue to monitor any shifts in prices.  I'd also keep an eye on the wrestlecon hotels when they get announced as they always have fantastic room rates and usually will offer the best atmosphere for fans.

Keep an eye on flights now from this point onwards also, usually book my flight during British airways August sale but cheaper options may come up before that.  I don't envisage myself paying more than 330 for a return flight from London to New York as I've done it for less before.

A decent mid range ticket for Mania will set you back around 200 quid.  HOF 50 quid, Raw 50 quid and general admission axxess 50 quid a pop.

Thanks. I'd budgeted about £400 for a WrestleMania ticket, don't mind about having a nosebleed seat for Raw and NXT though. I'll get looking into hotels now. You've been a massive help.
