WrestleMania 33 grosses $14.5 million in gate money

WWE today announced that WrestleMania 33 grossed $14.5 million in gate money, the highest-grossing event in the stadium’s history. WrestleMania 32 last year did over $17 million in gate money, but that had way more fans than this year.

WrestleMania 33 was also the most social event in WWE history, according to Nielsen Social, with 5.19 million interactions on Facebook and Twitter during the broadcast alone. There were also 2.8 million tweets about WrestleMania throughout the day. The show accounted for nearly 30% of all social TV interactions on Sunday, April 2, surpassing the Country Music Awards (13%), The Walking Dead Season Finale (10%) and MLB Opening Day on ESPN (10%).

WWE generated $3.7 million in WrestleMania merchandise revenue, an increase of 164 percent or $2.3 million, from WrestleMania 24 in Orlando. It was also WWE’s second-highest grossing WrestleMania, only behind last year’s WrestleMania 32 in Dallas.
