WrestleMania 29 - Highest-grossing event in WWE history

The WrestleMania 29 extravaganza will now go down as the highest-grossing event in WWE history, per a press release the company sent out earlier today. As industry publication Variety notes the entire WrestleMania weekend garnered the company a whopping $72 million, up significantly from last year's $67 million for WrestleMania 28. It also drew 80,676 fans to New Jersey's Met Life Stadium, once again up from the crowd of 78,363 at Miami's Sun Life Stadium. Variety also noted that the pay-per-view, headlined by the heavily-anticipated rematch between The Rock vs. John Cena, is projected to have done 1.2 million buys. Down slightly from last year's record-breaking 1.3 million purchases, but still a tremendous number.
