Tickets for the upcoming Battleground 2017 PPV at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, are reportedly not selling well. WWE sent out an email blast recently, letting fans in the area know ticket prices have been reduced.
Tickets which once cost $55 are now slashed all the way to $25. 2nd and 3rd row tickets are still available as well.
Why Isn’t Battleground Selling Well?
The famed hotbed of ECW, has been one of the hottest pro-wrestling markets in North American seemingly forever. The fans will turn on a show however, as was demonstrated by the 2015 Royal Rumble (and several other events).
WWE runs Philadelphia frequently throughout the year, but evidently there is something about this card which isn’t resonating with fans in the area.
The match lineup for the show is currently:
- AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens – US Championship
- Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin
- Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Tamina vs. Lana – #1 contender match
- John Cena vs. Rusev – Flag Match
- the Usos vs. New Day – Tag Title Match
- Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton – Punjabi Prison match for the WWE championship.
