– WWE is apparently papering the last 5,000 to 7,000 seats or so because they are unable to sell them. This would be the first time Wrestlemania has been papered during the last few days since WrestleMania 8 or 9. Additionally, paid ticket sales as of last weekend were about 60,000, with about 6-7,000 given away to promotional partners, contests, friends, families, etc. Despite the heavy papering, the event has brought in $5.7 million, which would be a North American pro wrestling record, and a top three gate of all-time, behind two New Japan Tokyo Dome events in the 1990’s.
– The latest weather forecast for tomorrow night in Orlando is 69 degrees and a 40% chance of intermittent rain during the event.
WrestleMania 25 has been confirmed to be held at the Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX, on April 5th, 2009. Flyers were given out to everyone who purchased a WWE Travel Package for this year's WrestleMania.
Travel packages for next year's show will be available in April, a full year before the event.
This will be the second WrestleMania in Houston, with X-7 being held at the Astrodome in 2001.
