Tonight's WrestleMania 29 A Sellout At MetLife Stadium

Tonight's WrestleMania 29 is sold out, as "upwards of 75,000 people are now expected to fill MetLife Stadium." The Axxess fan expo also was sold out through today (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 4/7). In N.Y., Mitch Abramson asks, "Why is wrestling so popular? Why do fans continue to flock to events showcasing fake wrestlers, saying fake lines, with fake storylines and made-up rivalries?" WWE execs have "talked openly of surpassing the Super Bowl in terms of attendance numbers." WWE Exec VP/Creative Stephanie McMahon said, "It’s always been our intention to blow the Super Bowl away” (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/7).
