— WWE is having some trouble filling up the Citrus Bowl and is giving out anywhere from 5,000 to 7,000 tickets in Orlando to fill the building up. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that as of last week 60,000 tickets were sold. Despite the papering, WrestleMania 24 holds the record for the biggest gate for a wrestling event in North America, bringing in $5.7 million in ticket sales. The only shows in history to earn more from tickets were two New Japan Pro Wrestling shows at the Tokyo Dome in the 90â<80><99>s.

— WrestleMania 24 has been getting a lot of mention on local radio stations all over Florida this week, mostly focused on Snoop Doggâ<80><99>s appearance.
