Living in LA, I presumed the best way to get tickets would be to wait at the Staples Center box office hours before they go on sale.

THEN I read at wrestlingobserver.com that most tickets will be presold and the box office will merely announce a 5-minute sellout.

Has anybody succeeded in getting tickets (from the box office or ticketmaster, not someone who buys them and then jacks up the price) for a WM or similarly large event?

I grabbed a floor seat at XIX through ticketmaster.com a couple of hours after tix went on sale.

Some friends and I got 300-level seats for XX at MSG, but only when all four of us were simultaneously trying to get through to ticketmaster.com right at the time tix went on sale. During that time, one of us did manage to find some of the $750 floor seats.

I figure this is as good a thread as any: the presale password for XXI is KAYFABE, according to Meltzer.

EDIT: I should say that both years, we got the tix during the internet presale.

I got tickets last year through the Ticketmaser presale using the password WWE.com gave out the week of the sale. Your best bet is to be online ten minutes beforehand, log into Ticketmaster (start an account if you don't have one) and be on the page ready to go. Hit refresh every minute til it's close, then repeatedly until the onsale screen pops up for you. Be ready to enter in fast, and be careful when typing things in.

If you can, it also helps to have three or four friends on a computer each in the same area -- an office, for instance -- so you can have everyone trying and increase your chances.

Just curious, when is the presale this year? I may try for tickets again.

It's on WWE.com now, so yes.

yeah i got lucky,
tried for 2 tickets for me and mate but couldnt get anything at any price. then just for the hell tried for singles, best available gave me floor 7 at $750 would have been great but out of my range. then put in $40 and got 300's section and was lucky enough to pluck another $40 in the 300's. this was at 9.10am p/t so we were very lucky.
me and mate will be sitting on the other side of the arena from each other but thankfully we can go.
last year we got no luck from ticketmaster and went via ebay. this year we are not as up for it as last year and werent going to get involved in an ebay bidding war.
i feel sorry for those who were unlucky and feel ticketmaster should drop the ticket limit to 2 or 4 maybe.
my advice now would be check ebay early for the best buy it nows. we got 2 $104 tickets for $300 last year as we bought early to avoid skyhigh increases and possibly losing out.

good luck and if you try again next year look out for number 1 first.

I tried to get two tickets in ANY range, and couldn't get squat. The three or four times I had individual tickets locked up, when it came time to pay, there was an error on their part. //edit: I'll try again for the public onsale tomorrow. I've read that there were some system glitches. Tickets may become available today.

from wrestlingobserver.com:

--The Wrestlemania pre-sale held today sold out immediately. I'm not sure what the deal was as we had people log on immediately and were told everything was sold out, so they must have put very few tickets on sale. Ticketmaster had technical issues with web tickets so there may be tickets put on sale at some point today or tomorrow for the web pre-sale, so you may want to keep trying, although the window of opportunity will close as whatever seats they do put on sale today will be gobbled up right away. There are already scalpers asking $300 for the $40 tickets. The regular sale begins at 1 p.m. Eastern time tomorrow. I'm assuming tickets will be gone from that immediately as well. Tickets for this show are going to be very difficult to get it seems. (thanks to Aaron Rift and other sources)

filthy ticket grubbing scalpers! i hate LA

I was on right at the on-sale time and didn't get squat. I checked out eBay for shits and giggles and the cheapest tickets are in about the worst section of the house, behind where the set will be.
