WrestleMania XL shatters all records for WWE

WWE issued a press release today announcing that WrestleMania XL has become the most-successful and highest-grossing event in company history.

The gate for the show broke the previous record set by WrestleMania 39 by 78%, with 145,298 in attendance at Lincoln Financial Field over two nights. The event drew fans from all 50 states and 64 countries worldwide.

Viewership on Peacock and WWE Network soared to 41% higher across both nights compared to last year’s WrestleMania, which at that time set a record.

Merchandise flew off the shelves at the Lincoln Financial Field, Wells Fargo Center, and the WWE World at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, with sales of more than 20% compared to last year’s WrestleMania in Los Angeles.

WWE World at WrestleMania, in partnership with Fanatics Events, is now the highest-grossing and most-attended fan event in company history while on social media, WrestleMania XL became the most socially viewed WrestleMania of all-time, with over 660 million views consumed over the two days. WWE’s YouTube channel saw its most-viewed day in channel history on WrestleMania XL Sunday with more than 67 million views in 24 hours.

Smackdown and Raw at the Wells Fargo Center drew the largest gates in the respective brand’s history while NXT Stand & Deliver was the most-attended NXT event ever with 16,545 in attendance.
