WWE has announced that WrestleMania 38 was their highest-grossing and most-attended event in company history.
WWE issued a press release this morning to tout that 156,352 fans from all 50 states and 53 countries attended AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX for the two-night event this past weekend, surpassing the previous gate and attendance records set by WrestleMania 32 in 2016.

We are so grateful for their partnership and desire to always overdeliver.”
“The city of Dallas would like to thank WWE for presenting an incredible WrestleMania week of events at both the American Airlines Center and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center,” said Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson. “The week provided an economic windfall for Dallas and proved once again that our city is a first-class host for major sporting events.”

“We are thrilled that WrestleMania’s return to Dallas again generated record results, proving that everything is indeed bigger in Texas,” said WWE Executive Vice President of Special Events John Saboor. “We are grateful to the Jones Family and the entire Dallas Cowboys Organization, the Dallas Sports Commission, the city of Arlington, the city of Dallas and all the public and private sector partners who were instrumental in making WrestleMania 38 the most stupendous two-night WrestleMania in history. We now turn our attention to next year, where WrestleMania will take over Hollywood.”
