As a person who has possession of an NXT ticket but hasn't actually watched NXT in months, I've been transfixed by the SeatGeek ticket prices. The get-in price there is 189, a little more than what Jacob saw. There's not many available in general, which is surely part of the reason for the high pricing, but the demand is kind of insane. I'm seeing tickets farther back from me going at 3x the price on the ticket before a match has been announced, with things like Kushida's debut hanging around as possibilities. It is at a point where I'm wondering if I'm crazy for not just cashing out and going to the Joey Ryan thing instead.

This is also crazy to think about, but I think almost obviously true: WWE probably should've put NXT in the stadium the night before WrestleMania. I don't know if that's even logistically possible with the setup they have to do in advance for those shows (or if there would be similar problems if they tried to run one of the baseball stadiums instead of a basketball arena) but from strictly the standpoint of putting people in seats, NXT could've put a lot more people in seats if they had the seats available. Not saying a sell-out, but a 30K crowd for the 'developmental brand' would've been impressive. And also confounding when they're still drawing low hundreds on the Largo Loop, but that's another thing entirely.

It is too late to make that move now. A lot of this demand is due to being in New York and may not be there in other markets. It is hard for me to guess how hot NXT will be a year from now. But I wonder if someone in WWE's venue department is running the numbers to see if they can run two days in whatever stadium WM happens to be in 2020.
I think the setup for Mania would preclude doing both shows in the same stadium. Given the timing of Mania, I doubt either of the baseball stadiums would have been open to letting a competing event to the first week of MLB potentially disrupt things. There is also the Red Bull Soccer Stadium in Jersey which could probably be set up for at least 30,000, but obviously, too late for that.

I still wonder why they didn't just bite the bullet and do the Garden. They would have obviously had precedence over ROH/NJPW and it's so much more historically tied to WWE than Barclays. I get four nights cost probably is a lot to bear, but it's Mania!
It makes the most practical (setup) and financial (MSG is stupid expensive) sense to run the same arena for all four arena shows and have that arena be Barclays. Plus MSG has a hefty origination fee for televised events (albeit not streaming events) that would make the cost even higher. And it's not like MSG is really any bigger with the current setup.

But yes, Red Bull Arena, being accessible from the PATH, could be an option in the future. It has 25,000 fixed seats for soccer, so they could easily get close enough to 30,000 in for wrestling, plus, unlike the baseball stadiums and MetLife, it has a roof (albeit a transparent one).

Fite's coming out with two packages for Mania weekend and both seem like good deals depending on what other services you currently have.

Based on the visual and "whatever" hint, looks like it'll be Orange Cassidy's turn at running a show

Seems like too much of an effort to paper over AEW pulling him (he may not have an exclusive deal), but it seems odd that such a high profile talent for their show would suddenly have visa issues.
