71,617 attend WrestleMania for $6.6 million in gate money
Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Apr 4, 2011 - 2:30:16 PM

The official attendance for yesterday's WrestleMania clocked in at 71,617, with WWE marketing it as the "highest grossing and most attended entertainment event" at the Georgia Dome.

That obviously doesn't include sports as the 2008 SEC Championship Game holds the overall record with nearly 76,000 fans.

The show also grossed $6.6 million in gate revenue from fans from all 50 states and 30 countries.

"WrestleMania XXVII was an overwhelming success and one for the Atlanta history books. WWE would like to thank our public and private sector partners for helping to make WWE's annual pop-culture extravaganza a memorable one," said John P. Saboor, Senior Vice President of Special Events, WWE. "We now look forward to building on that success as we head to next year’s WrestleMania in Miami."
