GETTING INTO AT&T STADIUM IS A LONG, TEDIOUS PROCESS

By Dave Scherer on 2016-04-03 17:37:00

We have heard from numerous people that the entrance process into WrestleMania at AT&T Stadium is a slow, tedious (and in some cases violent) process due to the way the staff at AT&T Stadium is conducting entry.

Longtime Elite member Jim Deveraux sent word that gates did not open until about an hour ago and the process to enter was not at all orderly.  A few correspondents have told us that the staff has not been very helpful.  We have heard reports that people waited through the line, got to checkpoint to get in and were told they were in the wrong line and sent to another line to wait before they could enter.

A match was advertised to take place in the first hour of the pre-show, so fans were getting very anxious about not getting in to see it (there are less than 20 minutes left in the pre-show as I wrote this).

Jim said that over time, it became crazy.  As he put it, "It's broken down into near anarchy - people are chanting this is bulls***, leaping fences, getting tackled by security, kids crying, people fainting in the heat. Line barely moves. Unbelievable."

I spoke with Mike Johnson and he confirmed that the process was slow and arduous as the staff at Dallas Cowboys' Stadium is treating the crowd as they do for a football game and taking them slowly through security checkpoints.  The problem seems to be that the process should have started earlier.

The US Title match is about to start so there will be some unhappy people at the event live.
