The Wrestling Post – Wrestlemania 29 earnings

April 25, 2013

Variety reports that Wrestlemania 29 set a record in earnings with $72 million.  This year’s event bested last year’s Wrestlemania in Miami which earned $67 million.

The $72 million figure includes ticket sales and PPV buys.  The event was up $5 to $70 (in HD).  Early PPV estimates have it at 1 million with the possibility of it hitting 1.2 million PPV buys. Attendance at MetLife Stadium set an attendance record of 80,676 fans.  

Payout Take: Obviously, the increase in the PPV price may have helped bolster the earnings figure.  Also, tickets for the event were likely more than the usual WWE event.  Still, the $72 million figure is a good number for the event and should help jump start the fiscal year.  We shall see with the earnings report coming out next Thursday.
