New Jersey - The WWE announced that WrestleMania 35 broke the record for MetLife Stadium’s highest-grossing entertainment event. 

The WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza on Sunday grossed $16.9 million, surpassing the venue’s previous record of $12.3 million set by WrestleMania 29 in 2013 as a sold-out crowd of 82 265 fans from all 50 states and 68 countries converged on MetLife Stadium.

WrestleMania35 was the second highest-grossing event in WWE history, only behind WrestleMania 32 at AT&T Stadium in Texas.

As part of the weeklong WrestleMania celebration, WWE will host five consecutive nights of events at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ and Barclays Centre in Brooklyn. 

WWE outdid themselves by creating an even more exciting WrestleMania than we experienced six years ago,” said New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. 

WrestleMania 36 takes place on Sunday, April 5, 2020 from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida.
