WWE Looking To Break Attendance Record at WrestleMania 32

By Kendrick E. Johnson

Everything is bigger in Texas. The 110,000-capacity AT&T Stadium reinforces this credo.

If WWE chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon has her way, AT&T Stadium, the official home of WrestleMania 32, will be will be the biggest WrestleMania ever. The iconic sports and entertainment event might still be days away, but McMahon and the “Authority” have big plans for Big D.

McMahon told Blitz Weekly in an exclusive interview:

“It is our goal every year with WrestleMania to have the next one be even bigger and even better and certainly nothing is bigger than it is here in Texas. So we just can’t wait, and I can’t give anything away, but knowing that we have to top ourselves and knowing we are looking to break our own attendance record which was set at WrestleMania III of 93,173 people – let me tell you something: The best minds are putting it together and we are going to give you a show that you will never forget.”


Luckily for McMahon and company, AT&T Stadium already has a knack for setting attendance records.

The stadium already holds the attendance record for an NFL game set in 2009, with a crowd of 105,121 and the largest attended indoor event in country with the 2010 NBA All-Star Game drawing 108,713 people.

As usual, WrestleMania will be the main event of a fun, festive week with all kinds of charity and fan events where people can meet and greet their favorite WWE Superstars up close and personal. WrestleMania 32 is expected to be attended by people from over 50 countries, who will witness Triple H defend his WWE World Heavyweight title against Roman Reigns.

In an unprecedented step, fans in the DFW Metroplex will get a chance to something other host city fans have not had the privilege of doing.

“We are going to give a chance for all the community of North Texas to come pick out their own seat right on the field out at AT&T stadium on Nov. 5 before anybody else has a chance to buy the ticket,” Charlotte Jones Anderson, Dallas Cowboys executive vice president and chief brand officer, said. “So hopefully those in the area can come out bring their families its free to all and get a chance to interact with Stephanie and all the fun people at WWE.”
