The long lines at AT&T Stadium and frustrated fans who spent a lot of money to attend WrestleMania 32 became a local news story in the DFW area.
NBC 5 published a statement from AT&T Stadium officials that the long lines were part of “increased security measures.”
“To ensure the safety of WWE fans, increased security measures were put in place tonight. We apologize that it may have taken some fans longer than usual to get into AT&T Stadium,” a statement read.
There were also in-person reports of WiFi going down, causing stadium officials to be able to scan tickets. Plus, WWE and AT&T Stadium waited until just before the pre-show to begin letting people inside the building.
