We got reports from fans about scalpers outside of the Barclays Center prior to SummerSlam selling fake tickets. We’re told that it was worse than usual and there might have been a couple of hundred people that were scammed and were not let into the arena as a result of getting fake tickets.
The police were said to be surprised at how many hard copy tickets were being sold by scalpers with one person emailing us to say that they lost $600.
Police try to do what they can but folks, if you are at the arena before a major show like SummerSlam and you can’t get tickets at the box office, then there’s a very good chance that you are going to be scammed by a scalper if you decide to go that route.
On an unrelated note, WWE is already planning on a big SummerSlam week for next year with NXT Takeover on a Saturday night followed by SummerSlam and Raw. The company is looking at Los Angeles or Las Vegas for next year.
