NBC Universal, Inc.

The biggest event in sports entertainment is coming to Philadelphia in 2024 and you can witness it all in person.

Here's a little guide to get your prepared. And, even possibly in the house for WrestleMania 40 at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia next April.

Want to see the Super Bowl of wrestling in person?

'WrestleMania is the Super Bowl of what we do in sports entertainment," WWE superstar Cody Rhodes, a.k.a. "The American Nightmare," said on a recent visit to NBC10's studio.

Fellow WWE superstar Mike "The Miz" Mizanin later told Philly Live's Aunyea Lachelle that fans should expect the unexpected. He said he would love to take on Philadelphia Eagles legend Jason Kelce or star QB Jalen Hurts.

Mike "The Miz" Mizanin chats with Philly Live's Aunyea Lachelle about his long career in the WWE and how excited he is to jump in the ring at WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia next spring. He even hopes he can stir up Eagles fans in the process.

"Who knows?" The Miz said. "I'll take the full offense on."

"I'll tag team with Patrick Mahomes," he joked.

Here is everything you need to know to make sure you don't miss any of pro wrestling's biggest event:

When is WrestleMania 40?

WrestleMania takes over the Philadelphia Eagles' stadium on Saturday, April 6, and Sunday, April 7, 2024. This is the second time Philly will host the WWE's main event, which has also twice happened in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

When do WrestleMania tickets go on sale?

General public tickets for the two-day event went on sale on Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. on Aug. 18, 2023. As of Nov. 1, 2023, Ticketmaster still had pairs of seats available for both nights and for two-night passes.

How much do tickets cost?

Organizers in emails and online didn't list a full price range for tickets.

However, on the Ticketmaster presale, seats close to the action on the floor for both nights cost as much as $10,000, plus fees. Other options were much cheaper with two floor seats going for $1,500 for both nights.

You can still grab those ringside tickets for $10,000 for a 2-day pass. Resale tickets for each night started as little as $179 on Ticketmaster's site on Nov. 1.

Want to get the VIP treatment?

You could also slam down some extra money for exclusive experiences that include hanging out with The Undertaker for $9,000 a person. That package was sold out, however, other less expensive priority passes were still on sale on Nov. 1.

Which wrestlers will enter the ring?

To guess anything about the WWE storylines months from now would be impossible. However, the Linc listed wrestlers who could take part.

"Witness your favorite Superstars from Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown as they take the stage at the showcase of the immortals including Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Cody Rhodes, Bianca Belair, World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Becky Lynch, and many more!" the Linc says on its WrestleMania event page.

That lineup, of course, is subject to change.

Will Joel Embiid make an appearance?

Sixers superstar Joel Embiid is a fan of Triple H, the DX Chop and the WWE. The reigning NBA MVP even drew a $35,000 fine from the NBA for “repeatedly making an obscene gesture on the playing court” during the third quarter of the Sixers’ Oct. 30 win vs. the Trail Blazers.

Embiid confirmed the celebration’s origins in 2021.

“Triple H and Shawn (Michaels),” Embiid told ESPN’s Zach Lowe on the Lowe Post podcast, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia. “Especially Triple H, my favorite wrestler. We all go back to the DX days, so that’s where I got it from.”

Triple H himself has taken notice, he even rang the Sixers bell ahead of a 2021 playoff game with Embiid by his side.

After the latest ode to DX, Triple H is inviting Embiid to enter his court.

"I know a place where you can do that all day, and everyone will love it," Triple H wrote on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

Let's see where that one goes.
