WRESTLEMANIA® BREAKS RECORDS

NEW ORLEANS, LA – April 6, 2014 – WWE® (NYSE: WWE) announced tonight that WrestleMania 30 broke the record for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s highest grossing entertainment event. This marks the fifth consecutive year that WWE broke the host venue’s highest-grossing entertainment event record. WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza grossed $10.9 million as a sold-out crowd of 75,167 from all 50 states and 37 countries converged on the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The event was broadcast live in the U.S. on WWE Network and via cable and satellite providers on pay-per-view in more than 100 countries and 20 languages.

The previous gross revenue record for an entertainment event at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was the three-day Essence Festival in 2013 featuring Beyoncé.

“On behalf of the city of New Orleans, I would like to thank all of the fans who came from around the world to WrestleMania 30,” said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “WrestleMania has taken its rightful place amongst the most historic events ever held in New Orleans.”

“The success of WrestleMania week in New Orleans would not have been possible without the tireless support of Mayor Mitch Landrieu, as well as our public and private sector partners who built an amazing blueprint to welcome our fans from around the world to this milestone celebration,” said John P. Saboor, Executive Vice President of Special Events, WWE. “We now begin our exciting journey to Silicon Valley for WrestleMania 31.”

WrestleMania 31 takes place on Sunday, March 29, 2015 from Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. Ticket information will be announced later this year.

      Unless Taker vs Sting is booked for WM31, i see ticket sales dropping with The Streak ending. I know to some that its not a big segment of WM, but there are alot of die hard Undertaker fans that help with ticket sales.I am a very big fan of his. There is no other gimmick in history to that compares to his IMO. Not saying he is the greatest ever but he is up there in the top 5 of all time in my book.

        I don’t think the sting match will even matter…if they are booking it so it’s more of a feud than a break the streak contest” then sure but the only way that would work IMO would be for them to actually feud on Raw throughout the year instead of the last 3 weeks leading up to Wrestlemania and I’m pretty sure that’s not gonna happen. I agree with everything else you said though…Taker would be in my top 3
