— Ticket sales for WrestleMania 25 in Houston have been disappointing thus far. A number hasn’t come out yet, but the advance for Wrestlemania was a major blow to the company because it is not even close to selling out. They’ve managed to sell out the floor seats, but seating everywhere else is still available. When you type in a request for the best tickets on TicketMaster.com, tickets in the lower bowl (such as section 137) come up (You can see the seating chart at the following link). According to “The Death of WCW” book, WrestleMania X-7 in Houston sold slightly under 49,000 tickets the first day. At the actual show, there were almost 68,000 fans in attendance.
— THQ sent out the following e-mail concerning a patch in the SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 video game:
Attention WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 fans!
This e-mail is to inform you that an official patch to address certain functionality related to the Create-A-Superstar feature in WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009 is scheduled to be released online for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles before 1/31/09. The patch will allow fans of the leading fighting videogame franchise to give all of their created Superstars full attributes after completing the new Career Mode one time through. Given the overall popularity of the Create-A-Superstar feature and the fans’ ongoing demand for more flexibility, this new patch will greatly enhance the player’s ability to fully customize many created Superstars at the same time.
Thank you for your support!
