Posted on 4/26/124 by Colin Vassallo

According to a report on JohnWallStreet.com, WrestleMania XL
had $38.5 million in gate money over the two nights,
smashing all WWE gate records.

The report said that the revenue from ticket sales was a 78%
increase from WrestleMania 39 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles
and 147% increase over WrestleMania 38 at AT&T Stadium in
Arlington. Those figures put the gate revenue for those two
events at $21.6 million and $15.6 million respectively.

WrestleMania XL broke all kinds of WWE records including
merchandise, viewing, social media, etc. This year’s event
outpaced last year’s show by 41% in terms of viewers.

WWE has yet to announce the location of WrestleMania 41 and
according to rumors, it’s between Minnesota and Las Vegas.
WWE President Nick Khan said that the show will not go
against the NCAA Final Four and will be held later in April
or in May. While there have been WrestleManias which were
held in March, April is usually the month for the show of
shows. There have never been a WrestleMania held in May.
