The Super Bowl of professional wrestling is coming to New Orleans this weekend. Wrestlemania 30 will be held at the Mercedes Benz Super Dome on Sunday. StubHub Spokesman Cameron Papp says ticket sales are going really well for the event.
"We have over 8,000 listings on our site and right now it is the highest WrestleMania since the one in 2012 in Miami. It is on pace to outsell that one. It's pretty popular," Papp says.
Papp says a big draw to Wrestlemania this year is the location. He says people are eager to visit New Orleans and a lot of visitors from Texas and New York are expected to attend.
"It's been off our radar a little bit. At StubHub we really focus on sports and concerts but Wrestlemania has actually really picked up some steam lately," Papp says.
Papp says tickets are listed for as low as 16 dollars but you can get close to the action if you're willing to pay big bucks. He says the just changed systems so the price listed includes all extra fees.
"The highest price listed is around $12,000. Those are for seats that are right up on the stage so you are pretty much right on the stage. You are pretty much in the action and I think you can high-five the wrestlers as they go by," Papp says.
