WrestleMania 38 was an overwhelming success.
The event — which was dubbed “The Most Stupendous Two-Night Event In WrestleMania History” — was held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and reportedly drew 156,352 fans in attendance.
It was the most-attended and highest-grossing event in WWE history.
But that’s not all. As it turns out, WrestleMania was a big hit on social media as well, breaking records previously set by the Super Bowl.
The records included the largest number of video views, hours, and impressions for any event in the history of WWE. The numbers shattered those set by the Super Bowl in February.
From Sports Illutsrated:
WWE’s 2.2 billion impressions vs. 1.8 billion impressions for the Super Bowl.
WWE’s 1.8 billion video views vs. 618 million video views for the Super Bowl.
WWE’s 13.1 million hours vs. 3.56 million hours for the Super Bowl.
WWE’s 87 million engagements vs. 78 million for the Super Bowl.
Not too shabby.
People like to mock professional wrestling and its fans, but there is no denying the event is one of the biggest in sports and entertainment. And the numbers continue to back that up.
