WWE Says WrestleMania 29 Became The Highest Grossing Live Event In Its History

WWE (WWE) late Sunday said WrestleMania 29 became the highest grossing live event in its history and broke the record for MetLife Stadium's highest grossing entertainment event.

WWE's annual pop-culture extravaganza grossed $12.3 million with 80,676 fans from all 50 states and 34 countries converging on MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The event is broadcast around the world on pay-per-view in over 100 countries and 20 languages.

The previous MetLife Stadium record for an entertainment event's gross revenue was a U2 concert on July 20, 2011, which grossed $8.9 million. This is the fourth consecutive year that WWE broke the host venue's record for the highest-grossing entertainment event.
