Judgment Day, this Sunday at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, is now officially sold out. However, you still have a chance to see this SmackDown! extravaganza in person!
Once the set, stage, ring, lights, etc., are put into place, seats will become available! Be sure to check with the STAPLES Center Box Office leading up to the show, and on the day of the show, for your chance to purchase these last-minute tickets.
Man, I knew people in California were on drugs, but damn, they sold-out the Staples Center for this shit?
"Whats your name? Dick Army. Hahaha, whats your wives name, Vagina Coastguard?"
I don't know if Ticketmaster is aware of the sell out because I was just offered 1 ticket (floor seat), 5 tickets (1st tier) and 10 tickets (level 200) for Judgment Day. Try it out yourself if you want to verify.
I don't know that this is a big surprise. LA is a good market, and regardless of whether the show looks to be shitty PPVs can be a really fun atmosphere. I'd be surprised by a good buyrate, but a sold out crowd in a market that size should be expected.

They always say that it's sold out. It doesn't matter how empty it is, they'll still claim on air that the event is sold out.
I was at a PPV here in Winnipeg years back where they actually had the balls to *announce* before we went on air that they building was sold out to get us all cheering more! This is with half the arena looking dead ahead at the empty seats in the top 15 rows.
It's no different than the way that every Wrestlemania is "The Greatest Wrestlemania in History" just to get people to say "Holy Shit! The greatest?!? I HAVE to buy this PPV!"
1Wrestling says they contacted the Staples Center who also say that it is not sold out. From 1W:
"WWE.com says Judgment Day is "officially sold out", but the website says "Once the set, stage, ring, lights, etc., are put into place, seats will become available!"
A quick check with TicketMaster.com found plenty of good seats available, including in sections not impacted by the "set, stage, ring, lights, etc".
Tickets are available in every price category, including the $300 seats (Row 5 still available). It's possible to still get up to six seats together in the $90 price level (Row 13), and up to ten seats together in the $20 price level.
An operator at the Staples Center told us "We've got plenty of good seats".
i just tried ticketmaster and could have got floor section 1 row 1. on the day. if the floor plan same as boxing then its an awesome seat must be a return. wish i had that luck for raw and mania. mind i wouldnt pay $300 to see bradshaw main event front row or not
I believe it's possible for this PPV to be sold out. Much like Emma said in another thread, these tickets went on sale a while back and having the "WWE PPV" tag on it, most fans would think WWE would deliver a quality night of entertainment... Oh there's not denying, this card is atrociously bad, but I think WWE will feel the effects the next time they do a show in L.A especially for early day sales because I get a feeling if the PPV is as bad as I expect it to be, the residence will think "Okay let's see the card before we buy our tickets this time."
You can really tell many in the IWC wants this PPV to fail big time. I mean searching & searching to see if the PPV is actually sold out, is that a usual thing to do?... It seems like most net writers are really rooting for Raw so much so that it was reported a 600,000 buys for Backlash instead of the actual 280,000 buys (I know it was a mistake, but lets be honest most of us were rooting for the former number). The twisted side of me wonders what happens if Judgement Day actually gets a higher number the Backlash. Just to see everyone's collective jaw hit the ground (including my own)
