The self-funded “All-In” events saw tickets go on sale today at 4:oo p.m. Eastern Time. The website was immediately difficult to access and was gridlocked for the show at the Sears Center Arena in Chicago. The venue was set up to hold 10,000 fans for the show. PWTorch has confirmed with sources that the show sold out in 30 minutes.
One factor that might have come into play is there was no limit on the number of tickets scalpers could buy and with “All In” being seen as an extremely hot ticket, there could be a huge market for these tickets on the secondary market, but it is unknown just how many tickets scalpers bought at this time.
Update: After checking stubhub.com’s inventory for the “All In” event, they have less than 220 tickets on sale for the show in various locations around the venue, so scalpers are clearly not playing a factor at all in this show selling out so quickly.
Radican’s Analysis: “All In,” a self-funded show by The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes, selling out in 30 minutes is sure to be one of the top stories of 2018 when all is said and done. It is incredible what the Bullet Club brand along with the popularity of The Young Bucks and Cody in the U.S. have done to sell out this show so quickly with no major backing or promotion on a big scale.
