WiFi problems at AT&T Stadium keep fans from entering WrestleMania
Problems with the WiFi at A&T Stadium in Arlington prevented many fans from entering the venue for WrestleMania 32 on Sunday.
Wrestling fans attending WrestleMania 32 tell Larry Brown Sports they were forced to wait two hours before being able to enter the stadium because the WiFi went down. With the WiFi down, the ticket scanners were not working, so they would not let fans in.
Our sources say they were waiting in a hallway inside a hallway at AT&T Stadium for two hours.
Others watching the show on WWE Network referenced the WiFi problem.
Watching the Wrestlemania feed at work & the WiFi is down. It's used to scan tickets. They aren't letting anyone in lol

Problems at the AT&T stadium with wifi affecting ticket scanners. I mean, of course any stadium named after AT&T has issues. #WrestleMania

Apologies for any delays with tweets. Wifi in the AT&T stadium is worse than Chris Jericho's hair. #WrestleMania

The WWE later issued a statement to apologize for the long lines, saying they were due to security measures.
“To ensure the safety of WWE fans, increased security measures were put in place tonight. We apologize that it may have taken some fans longer than usual to get into AT&T Stadium.”
