Wrestlemania 32 Makes $17.3 Million, Breaks Record For Highest Grossing Live Event
A wifi issue at AT&T Stadium in Arlington may have kept ticket holders from getting into Wrestlemania 32 in a timely fashion, but it certainly didn’t do anything to reduce the amount of money the WWE pulled in off ticket sales.
According to a Tweet from Darren Rovell, this Wrestlemania took in about 50% more than the previous high-water mark for the event, which was set just last year.
Here’s Rovell’s Tweet:
WWE: Wrestlemania 32 is its highest grossing live event of all time, generating $17.3M. Obliterates last year’s record of $12.6M.

That’s a staggering average of $170 per ticket for the 101,763 officially-announced fans in attendance. I guess business is good for the WWE these days. We’ll see if next year’s event in Orlando on April 2nd can lay waste to this record.
