Yea man what a fucking corporate sell out Corey Graves is for being mad that CM Punk, who was such a close friend that he held Corey's first born son before Corey could even do it himself, stopped associating with him because he didn't quit WWE! Obviously the correct solution was for him to leave WWE when CM Punk did.

Why do a long build to Ronda winning the title? People would just whine about how obvious it was that she was gonna win the title, how she was somehow "burying" everyone else in the division and how she doesn't "deserve" to win because she didn't spend 3 years in NXT before coming to the main roster.

Yeah, scalpers definitely grabbed almost everything. I was in the waiting room gimmick for 30+ minutes after I had already been on the site half an hour before tix went on sale.

From everything I've read, there was no limit on per-person sales so it's likely that a lot of tickets were bought by experienced scalpers who do this all the time. I've seen way more complaints about the website and the StubHub prices than people saying they actually bought tickets on the official website. The other argument is "But there aren't even that many tickets on StubHub!" which is true but also it wouldn't make sense to immediately put 1000 tickets on StubHub because that would ruin the artificial scarcity mark up they have going on there now that is allowing them to sell ringside seats for $1000+

Anyone who REALLY wants to go to this but didn't get tickets from the official seller should just wait it out for a few weeks/months. Right now the ticket prices on StubHub are crazy because they are taking advantage of the super marks freaking out that "OH MY GOD IT'S SO POPULAR ALL THE TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT, I WILL PAY ANYTHING TO BE ABLE TO GO TO THIS!" Most of the talk about this I've seen on twitter has been about how people who wanted to go DIDN'T get tickets so I think the majority of what was sold went to scalpers.

 

Once the super marks have all bought their tickets at 4-5x their face value, I suspect the prices will really start coming down. I would even guess that if you wait until the day of the event you'll probably be able to buy tickets for LESS than face value.
