According to a report from NBC DFW, WWE WrestleMania 38 is expected to bring in over $250 million in economic impact to the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Dallas Sports Commission Executive Director Monica Paul spoke with the website and said,
“In 2016 the projected economic impact was over $170 million. With adding that extra night we are going to be well over $250 million in economic impact.”
The Undertaker also spoke with the local news affiliate, saying,
“We have people come in from, I don’t know, 30 or 40 different countries around the world. They’ll fly in for WrestleMania. Could be more this year because we’ve got two nights. There’s going to be money, people spending money, on hotels, restaurants, attractions. It is our Superbowl of what we do.”
‘Taker added, “There’s some people that watch it just for the athleticism. Then there are the other people that watch it just for the storylines and the drama that comes behind that.”
WWE WrestleMania 38 takes place on April 2nd and 3rd from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
