World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. said Monday that its upcoming WrestleMania 21 was a quick sell.
All 15,000 available tickets for the pay-per-view event -- to be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday, April 3 -- were sold in less than one minute Saturday, setting records for the fastest ticket sellout for both the arena and WWE.
The tickets were priced from $40-$750, and buyers of the most expensive seats will be able to keep their commemorative WrestleMania 21 ringside chairs, WWE said.
"The speed in which this event sold out further reinforces WrestleMania's position as a beloved icon in pop culture," WWE executive vice president of marketing Kurt Schneider said in a prepared statement.
"The event is more than six months away, and still, our great fans rushed to purchase tickets simply on the basis that this is WrestleMania, and that this will be a Hollywood experience like no other,” he added.
