WWE/UK: London WWE house show draws over $1 million in gate revenue


Posted on 5/02/124 by Colin Vassallo



London continued to make its case for a WrestleMania showing
WWE how it’s done with a non-televised live event last month
drawing over $1 million in gate money.

Quoting numbers from Pollstar, Brandon Thurston on
Wrestlenomics wrote that the live event at The O2 Arena in
London on April 19 had 16,342 tickets sold for a gate of
$1,197,822.

This was the largest non-televised live event of the year so
far for WWE and certainly the biggest gate for such an
event.

$1 million gates are not uncommon for pay-per-views in
wrestling and the occasional televised event in big markets,
but a figure like that for a simple house show is very,
very, very rare.

The London Mayor told the press that if he gets re-elected
in this week’s elections, he will do his utmost to bring
WrestleMania to the city, with Triple H replying to him
inviting him to talks.
