• WWE Set To Break Their All-Time Attendance Record At WrestleMania 37?
According to the Wrestling Observer, WrestleMania 37 is expected to take place in Los Angeles and WWE might set a new all-time attendance record at that event.
Below is what Dave Meltzer said:
“It’s gonna be Los Angeles. I heard that the city of Los Angeles wants it in 2021, but WWE wants it in 2022, but it looks like the city of Los Angeles is probably gonna get its way.
The gist is that the city wants — the Super Bowl is coming in February 2022 to the new stadium in Hollywood Park which is being built. It’s a giant stadium, it’s gonna hold 100,000+ people like the AT&T Stadium.
So WWE is gonna claim when they go there that they break the AT&T record, they’ll probably claim like 102,000 people.”
WWE’s current all-time attendance record is 101,763, which was set at WrestleMania 32 in 2016.
