WWE breaks WrestleMania gate record

WWE has announced that WrestleMania 39, which will originate from SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles across two nights (April 1st and 2nd), broke the company’s all-time gate record for any WrestleMania, despite having yet to announce a single match. The previous record announced was $17.3 million in 2016 at WrestleMania 32 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The record gate comes on the heels of unprecedented ticket sales demand for WWE in 2022, in which it produced the highest-grossing gates of all-time for Royal Rumble, Survivor Series and Extreme Rules. Clash at the Castle in Cardiff, Wales, which marked WWE’s first major stadium show in the UK in 30 years, was the highest-grossing UK event in company history.
Additionally, WWE set in-market gate records for SmackDown and Raw events in more than 20 markets for the year, including the December 30th SmackDown, which took place in Tampa, Florida and saw WWE icon John Cena participate in his first (and only) match of 2022.
WrestleMania 39 can will stream live on Peacock in the US and WWE Network everywhere else.
