WrestleMania 38 takes place on Saturday, Apr. 2 and Sunday, Apr. 3 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Here is the record for the largest attendance in the event’s history.
WrestleMania 38 has arrived, and will take over the Dallas, Texas area. Nights One and Two of the massive wrestling event will take place inside the massive AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.
Given how gargantuan the stadium is and how many WrestleMania’s there have been, some may be wondering what is the largest attendance ever in the event’s history?
WrestleMania attendance record: WWE’s record crowd for flagship event
As of this writing, the largest attendance belongs to WrestleMania 32 which, ironically, took place inside AT&T Stadium. WWE announced that the attendance of the Apr. 3, 2016 show was 101, 763.
The attendance numbers have been disputed.
The event was headlined by Triple H vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship. The show also featured Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch for the Women’s Championship and The Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon in a Hell in a Cell match.
Long before 32nd edition of the event, the record was held by WrestleMania III. The event took place inside the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, MI. on March 29, 1987. The attendance for that show was announced by the company as 93,173.
The main event of the show was Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant for the WWE Championship, which saw Hogan body slam his over 7-foot-tall opponent. The event also featured the legendary Intercontinental Championship match between “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.
WrestleMania 38 will take place on Saturday, Apr. 2 and Sunday, Apr. 3, with the main cards beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET each night.
