It appears that WWE doesn't need Roman Reigns to sell out their upcoming WWE Hell in a Cell premium live event in Chicago.
On May 16, WrestleTix released the latest ticket sale information on social media for the event, which takes place June 5th at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL. The tweet revealed that almost 1,500 tickets still remained for the event:
Over the last week, however, the story has changed, and today's update on WrestleTix's Patreon page shows a sudden surge in ticket sales for the WWE Hell in a Cell premium live event over the past week, leading to over 1,000 new tickets being sold.
WrestleTix currently has the available tickets at 396 for the 12,367-seat capacity setup. The report notes that as of today, 11,971 tickets have been distributed, with more than 1,000 being sold in the past seven days.
Cody Rhodes is helping sell out WWE Hell in a Cell without Roman Reigns
With The Head of the Table no longer scheduled for the show, it's very intriguing to see that ticket sales have increased since then with The American Nightmare front and center instead.
This should certainly bode well for WWE in the future if Reigns' newly-reported Brock Lesnar-type schedule is true. Can Rhodes continue to steer the ship for WWE without The Tribal Chief? We'll find out soon enough.
