Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WrestleMania 35 this past April at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey had a paid number of 63,000 fans in attendance.
WWE announced 82,265 fans at WrestleMania 35 but WWE is known to inflate their attendance figures.
Meltzer would write, “with it being a legit sellout, that says that the stage must have been blocking off more seats as WrestleManias that sellout legit will have 5,000 to 7,000 comps, so the real figure would have been 68,000 to 70,000.”
WrestleMania 29 in 2013 at the same stadium had 68,900 fans in attendance who paid for their tickets. At the time, WWE announced 80,676 were in the building.
