Here are a few WWE news items from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter via Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com…
* Regrading Johnny Gargano’s status with WWE, Meltzer noted that Gargano has not yet signed a new contract but WWE “is pushing very hard for him to do so and evidently made a very strong offer for him to stay here for a long time.” Gargano’s current deal reportedly expires on December 3rd.
* According to sources close to the AT&T stadium in Dallas, around 37,500 tickets have been sold so far for each night of Wrestlemania 38 with there being a total of around 75,000 tickets sold. Meltzer wrote that “some internally were disappointed by the number, blaming the ticket prices being priced too high.”
* There is speculation that Adam Pearce will have his own faction in WWE. Pearce’s nickname during his wrestling career was “Scrap Iron” and the company recently filed trademark applications for the terms Scrapp Metel, Scrapp Metal, Scrapp Mettal, Scrapp Mettal and Scrapp Metal.
