WWE notes: Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins, Veer changes, WrestleMania 38 ticket sales

Dave Meltzer provided some WWE notes in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer provided some WWE notes and insight on Cody Rhodes and some ticket sales updates for WrestleMania 38.

Cody vs. Seth a go for WrestleMania

On Rhodes, Meltzer said that WWE sources have indicated that Cody Rhodes facing Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38 is indeed set. 

"All WWE sources indicate the belief that the deal is done and the match is happening and that any suggestion it isn’t is not the case," Meltzer wrote. "There are those close to the situation who are still suggesting otherwise but one person in WWE called that 'silliness' at this point."

Veer getting a change

It was also noted in this week's WON that when Veer finally does arrive to Raw on April 4, his character will be changed. 

"Veer’s long-awaited Raw return is scheduled for the 4/4 show in Dallas. It also looks like they are changing his original character," Meltzer wrote. 

What's closing Saturday's first night of WrestleMania?

There were reports out this week that Steve Austin's appearance on the KO Show would headline WrestleMania's first night on Saturday, but Meltzer said that as of now, that is not the case.

"According to those in WWE, as of mid-week, Flair vs. Rousey was scheduled to close the show but it was also noted that match order changes frequently," he wrote. 

Ticket sales update for WrestleMania weekend

In terms of ticket sales, there are currently 60,586 tickets out for WrestleMania Saturday and 58,499 out for the Sunday show. The stadium is set up for 65,268. The current "get in" price on the secondary market for Saturday is $35 and for Sunday is $29.  

The SmackDown/Hall of Fame ceremony on April 1st has 10,704 tickets distributed while the April 4th edition of Raw has 9,744 tickets out. It was noted that WWE will likely set a record for most ticket and merchandise revenue ever from a WrestleMania weekend.
