Show’s Ticket Sales Increase Following WWE Star Announcement WWE

Ticket sales for an upcoming show increased within a day of a WWE star being announced for a match on the show.

Former WWE Women’s Champion IYO SKY made a surprise video appearance at the most recent Marigold show, where she was revealed as the opponent for Utami Hayashishita at the upcoming Summer Destiny show on July 13.

IYO’s participation in the match came as a shock to a lot of fans, including Utami herself, and WWE’s partnership with Marigold is already showing some positive effects for the upstart promotion.

Taking to Twitter, Rossy Ogawa discussed the upcoming match with IYO, noting that the show immediately saw 600 more ticket sales within a day of the announcement that she would be competing.

He wrote (translated):

Inviting a superstar from the world’s largest organization has shown the significance of Marigold’s existence to the world. 600 more tickets were sold within one day of Iyo’s announcement. The match between Utami and Iyo is a strong contender for the best match of the year.

IYO’s match in Marigold will come just one week after WWE Money In The Bank, in which IYO will compete in the Women’s Ladder match.
