Smackdown and MITB from London gross over $5.4 million in gate money

WWE today issued a press release touting Money In The Bank from The O2 Arena in London as the most-successful and highest-grossing Money In The Bank of all-time.

Money In The Bank set a new record for highest-grossing arena event in WWE history and Friday Night SmackDown from The O2 became the highest-grossing Smackdown of all-time. The weekend generated a combined gate of more than $5.4 million.

Money In The Bank also set new records for viewership, sponsorship, merchandise and social media.

Viewership jumped 17 percent from last year’s record, and surpassed the last U.K. premium live event – Clash at the Castle – by 30 percent.

Sponsorship revenue was up nine percent versus the record set in 2022.

MITB marked the highest-grossing arena event for venue merchandise in WWE history. It has also set a new record for On Location fan experience packages, becoming the highest-grossing non-WrestleMania event ever.

The event became the most social Money In The Bank of all-time, with video views of the Bloodline Civil War match reaching 40 million in the first 48 hours – a 4X jump from the top clip at Night of Champions, Jimmy Uso super-kicking Roman Reigns.
