Tickets were priced from $30 in the upper sections of MSG all the way up to $300 for ringside tickets. ROH sources tell PWTorch that they haven’t seen the exact breakdown of tickets sold, but it is believed that most of the $300 tickets have been sold and the majority of remaining tickets are in the upper bowl at $56 or $81.
ROH has sold around 12,000 tickets at this time without using Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks in their advertising for the show, as they are set to become free agents at the end of this year. Kenny Omega, who is currently under NJPW contract, will also be a free agent early in in 2019 and he would be another major name to promote the show. Right now NJPW wrestler Kazuchika Okada and ROH wrestler Marty Scurll are being used prominently in advertising.
