Nick Paglino

The RockAccording to The Wrestling Observer, a key WWE official is under the impression that WrestleMania 29 generated around 750,000 North American buys, which would put the show slightly above last year's PPV, which ended up totaling over 1 million buys.

Shortly after WrestleMania 29, WWE noted that the event generated $72 million, which is an increase of about $5 million from last year. This makes WrestleMania an event that has gone from making $20-$25 million to around $40 million in just a few years. Of the $67 million that WrestleMania 28 generated last year, WWE itself took in around $36.2 million.
