Michael Sulkes, the General Manager of the Wells Fargo Center, is a lifelong WWE fan. He attended WrestleMania XV at the Wells Fargo Center in 1999 when he was just 13 years old. Reflecting on how the WWE has evolved over the years, Sulkes notes that the event has outgrown arenas and is now held across multiple nights at different venues. This growth is evident in how the WWE has expanded to three sold-out events at the Wells Fargo Center and its surrounding areas.

With approximately 17,000 people expected to attend each show at the Wells Fargo Center, arena President Phil Lawes estimates that about 6,000 fans have purchased tickets for all three events. The excitement around these shows is palpable as fans eagerly anticipate seeing their favorite wrestlers battle it out in the ring.

As part of WrestleMania weekend, the WWE is also hosting WWE World at WrestleMania at the Pennsylvania Convention Center until Monday. To accommodate fans and minimize traffic congestion, SEPTA has added additional services on the Broad Street Line and Regional Rail routes around the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. With so many people coming into town for these events, it’s important for transportation options to be readily available and efficient.

Sulkes is thrilled about this year’s WrestleMania weekend and believes that it will make a significant impact on Philadelphia. He’s excited for his city to take over by becoming part of something as big as this event. With so much energy and excitement in the air, it’s sure to be an unforgettable weekend for everyone involved.
