5 Biggest WWE Stadium With The Highest Crowd Capacity

8 months ago By Sports Desk

Professional wrestling is intriguing. Despite its immense global fanbase, its major events often draw smaller crowds compared to other sports. While football typically gathers 30,000 to 40,000 fans for each game, WWE events usually hold fewer than 20,000 spectators.

However, the narrative shifts during significant occasions. Wrestlemania, the pinnacle wrestling event, exemplifies this shift. With attendance reaching over 50,000 people, stadiums burst with fans eager to experience this wrestling extravaganza.

Let’s explore the colossal arenas capable of hosting the most attendees. Here’s a rundown of the five largest wrestling stadiums globally:

#5 Wembley Stadium (Capacity: 90,000 | Attendance: 80,355 for Summerslam ’92)

The Success of Summerslam in the UK

The iconic Wembley Stadium in London took center stage as it became the venue for one of WWE’s initial pay-per-view events held outside the United States. Summerslam ’92 marked a monumental triumph, gathering a staggering 80,355 spectators. The event’s highlight was the British Bulldog’s victory over Bret Hart in the main evening match.

#4 Metlife Stadium (Capacity: 82,500 | Attendance: 80,676 for Wrestlemania 29)

A Packed House for Twice in a Lifetime

For over two decades, the previous entry held the record for the largest WWE crowd. However, Wrestlemania 29 at the Metlife Stadium in New Jersey changed the game. The Rock and John Cena headlined this event, attracting a massive 80,676 fans. The rematch’s outcome might have raised eyebrows, but the turnout was undeniable.

#3 Pontiac Silverdome (Capacity: 82,666 | Attendance: 93,173 for Wrestlemania III)

Wrestlemania III’s Unforgettable Moments

In 1987, the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan set a WWE attendance record that stood strong for nearly three decades. During the Golden Age of wrestling, this colossal dome was the setting for Hulk Hogan’s legendary showdown with Andre the Giant. Hogan’s iconic bodyslam resonated with the 93,173 fans present that night.

#2 AT&T Stadium (Capacity: 105,000 | Attendance: 101,763 for Wrestlemania 32)

Shattering Records at Wrestlemania 32

Wrestlemania 32 made history by eclipsing the attendance of Wrestlemania III. The AT&T Stadium in Texas welcomed a mind-boggling 101,763 attendees. This 2016 edition marked the first-ever WWE event to draw over 100,000 fans. The main event, however infamous, couldn’t overshadow the milestone achieved.

#1 Mayday Stadium (Capacity: 150,000 | Attendance: 190,000 for Collision in Korea)

Collision in Korea: A Monumental Spectacle. No matter WWE’s efforts, reaching the colossal numbers seen at Collision in Korea seems unlikely. The Mayday Stadium in North Korea became an unexpected host for a joint event by WCW and NJPW in 1995. Unbelievably, Day 1 and Day 2 of Collision in Korea amassed a staggering 150,000 and 190,000 attendees respectively, making this event an absolute anomaly.

In the world of wrestling, these massive stadiums have witnessed history unfold, with fans from all corners of the globe gathering to celebrate their passion.
