WrestleMania 38 has generated over $200 million

We all know very well how important WrestleMania 38 is in the world of wrestling, the biggest event of the year not just for WWE, but for the entire wrestling system. Able to bring together fans from all over the world, the “Grandaddy of Them All” gives the (indirect) possibility to many other realities to create their own exclusive events and concentrate them in the territory where that particular edition of WM will take place.

The latest edition was divided into two evenings like the two previous editions with two main events that are nothing short of historic. On the first night, Kevin Owens faced "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, returning to the ring 19 years after the last time (vs The Rock at WrestleMania 19).

On the second evening, however, Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar to become WWE Undisputed Universal Champion. Matches and unique results, as well as the return to the federation of Cody Rhodes, in other words, events capable of making WrestleMania 38 an event that generated $206.5 million as an impact on the economy in the cities of Dallas / Arlington last April.

WrestleMania 38 was a hit

It was only a few days ago when Triple H confirmed that his in-ring career was over. Since then, there has been an outpouring of support, and many fans wanted The Game to get a moment of his own at WrestleMania 38.

It would seem absurd data to think about, but just a few minutes ago the WWE itself released a statement on the matter with figures revealed directly by the Mayor of Dallas, Eric Johnson and the Mayor of Arlington, Jim Ross.

Over the past 12 years, WWE has generated over $1 billion in revenue for the cities in which it has been hosted. More specifically WrestleMania has generated over $24.8 million in federal state and local taxes. For the latest edition, 67% of the fans attending the event were from cities other than Dallas and Arlington, with overnight stays averaging 3.5 nights.

While $25.4 million are the figures collected overall by the various hotels and other sources of accommodation for fans. Finally, the show's economic impact on the aforementioned area was able to generate 1,777 new full-time jobs.

In the opening segment of WrestleMania Sunday, Triple H opened the show and welcomed fans to WrestleMania. He didn't make it about himself and instead left his match boots in the middle of the ring - signaling a true retirement from competition.
