WWE stars are reportedly furious at the decision to suspend ticket sales for Wrestlemania 37.
Superstars are allegedly in line to miss out on thousands of pounds as a result of Vince McMahon pulling the plug.
The show is taking place at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium and there were hopes of having more than 40,000 fans in attendance in line with Florida's liberal Covid-19 restrictions.
Tickets for the April 10 and 11 showcase event were supposed to go on sale on Tuesday March 16.
But an announcement on Monday Night RAW informed wrestling fans the planned sale had been postponed.
Announcer Tom Phillips offered no reason for the delay but stated a new date would be set by the end of this week.
The situation was described a 'mess' by several un-named superstars in the lead up to Tuesday, according to Fightful.
And with stars usually having bonus clauses in their contracts relating to ticket sales, many are reportedly set to be left out of pocket.
Several big names are also said to be angry about a lack of information relating to complimentary friends and family tickets although they were warned they would be at a premium beforehand.
The stadium holds 65,000 people and it is also reported McMahon is softening on the idea of using up to 20,000 cardboard cut outs to make the arena seem full.
