Vince McMahon might get his wish of violation a all-time assemblage record during WrestleMania.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported Thursday that WrestleMania 32—taking place during ATT Stadium on Apr 3 in Arlington, Texas—has damaged a WWE record with during slightest 84,000 tickets sole (via Arash Markazi of ESPN.com).
With 3 weeks until a Showcase of a Immortals, WWE is looking to transcend a ostensible all-time WrestleMania assemblage record of 93,173 hold during WrestleMania III in a Pontiac Silverdome on Mar 29, 1987, when WWE was still WWF. That, of course, was a night Hulk Hogan slammed Andre a Giant in one of a some-more iconic moments in wrestling history.
Not usually is a venue itself a reason because a record has fallen, though so are a tip matches on a card.
WWE World Heavyweight champion Triple H—pending if Dean Ambrose defeats him in Saturday’s WWE Roadblock event—is holding on Roman Reigns for a title. Ambrose is also set to face Brock Lesnar in a travel fight, and a returning Shane McMahon will face The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell with control of Monday Night Raw on a line for Vince’s son.
WWE could certainly mangle a WrestleMania assemblage record, though it might be a widen to mangle a all-time ATT Stadium record, per Markazi:
The WWE is aiming for a 100,000 assemblage figure for WrestleMania 32. The 2010 NBA All-Star diversion during ATT Stadium drew in 108,713.
