This year’s WrestleMania 38, meanwhile, which was held at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, generated the most revenue in WWE’s history and also recorded the highest in-person attendance.

Over the past decade, WWE says WrestleMania has generated more than $1.25 billion in cumulative economic impact for the cities that have hosted the event.

Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney added: “We are proud to welcome WWE fans from around the world to Philadelphia to be a part of the historic 40th WrestleMania in 2024. The week-long series of events will help put a global spotlight on our great city while also generating a major impact for our local economy.”
