Wrestlemania 20 revenue press release


WWE and Mayor Landrieu announce via press release that Wrestlemania 30 generated over $142 million for the region in April of 2014. Landrieu comments:

On behalf of New Orleans, we thank all WWE fans that came from around the world to experience all that our beautiful city has to offer. The week-long series of events helped generate a record-breaking boost to our economy, and we look forward to the possibility of New Orleans hosting a future WrestleMania.

Featured in Forbes

Wrestlemania is featured in Forbes Fab 40, a compilation of most valuable sports brands. Wrestlemania makes the list at number eight.

A new member among Fab 40 events is WrestleMania, an annually staged event put on by WWE, the most successful professional wrestling promotion in the world. The WrestleMania brand is worth $105 million by my calculations, placing it eighth among sporting events. In April, Wrestlemania 30 broke the record for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s highest grossing entertainment event, marking the fifth-consecutive year WrestleMania broke the host venue’s single day revenue record.

Ends the streak

Wins Sport Event

Lesnar defeats The Undertaker in one on one match to end Undertaker’s 21 year undefeated streak at Wrestlemania 30.

When Brock Lesnar defeats The Undertaker at WrestleMania, it will not trivialize nor negate or minimize the magnitude of the accomplishment that is 21 victories. Brock Lesnar will never amass 21 victories at WrestleMania. He’ll be too old. John Cena is never going to get to 21 in a row. They named the Battle Royal after Andre the Giant. He couldn’t get three in a row
