WWE® (NYSE: WWE) announced tonight that 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, as 80,676 fans from all 50 states and 34 countries converged on MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

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.

“On behalf of the great state of New Jersey, I want to thank all of the fans that came from around the world to beautiful MetLife Stadium for WrestleMania 29,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said. “WWE put on a show like no other and electrified the capacity crowd.”

“WrestleMania came home and had an incredible impact on the entire New York/New Jersey region,” WWE’s Senior Vice President of Special Events John P. Saboor said. “We want to thank our fans as well as our public and private sector partners for their support. We now turn our attention to the Big Easy for next year’s historic 30th anniversary of WrestleMania.” 

WrestleMania XXX takes place on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Ticket information will be announced later this year.
