Slow sales have caused WWE to slash prices on tickets for the upcoming ECW PPV. This weekend, $200 tickets for ECW’s PPV in New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom were dropped to $100. Because of this, many fans who paid $150 initially will end up sitting behind fans who paid just $100.
The ringside $400 seats did sell out right away, but overall, the experiment of charging much higher prices than usual was considered in retrospect to be overly aggressive. WWE will be holding an autograph session for fans who purchased the $400 tickets.
The ECW PPV will still be a major money maker for WWE, despite the venue holding only 2,500 people and the recent price cuts.
