WWE announced that WrestleMania 31 has become the highest grossing live event in the company history as well as breaking the attendance record of the Levi’s Stadium.

WrestleMania 31 grossed a total of $12.6 million from 76,976 fans from all 50 states and 40 different countries. The previous attendance record for Levi’s Stadium was 70,799 and the highest grossing WrestleMania up until yesterday was WrestleMania 29 with $12.3 million.

“On behalf of the cities of Santa Clara and San Jose, we would like to thank all the fans that came from around the world to be part of WrestleMania 31,” said Santa Clara Mayor Jamie Matthews. “We congratulate both WWE and Levi’s Stadium on their historic achievement.”

WWE thanked the Mayors, the San Francisco 49ers, the private sector partners and public workers for helping to setup WrestleMania.

“We are thrilled that WrestleMania 31 has set the standard for all future events held at Levi’s Stadium. None of this success would have been possible without the support of Mayor Matthews, Mayor Liccardo and the San Francisco 49ers, as well as our public and private sector partners that worked tirelessly to support all of our regional WrestleMania Week activities,” said John P. Saboor, WWE Executive Vice President, Special Events. “We now turn our attention to the Dallas/Arlington region for what will surely be a historic WrestleMania 32.”
