Triple H Claims WrestleMania 40 Destroyed Records For Gate

Triple H Cody Rhodes WWE WrestleMania

Triple H is riding high as the first WrestleMania of WWE’s new era under his watch is in the books and he’s claiming some gate records for the company.

Cody Rhodes finished his story by winning the WWE Championship from Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 40. Roman Reigns had an emotional moment with his Wiseman following the match as Rhodes celebrated with his friends, fans, and fellow WWE stars as he ended the reign of terror of The Tribal Chief.

Rhodes called for two people to join him in the ring to celebrate his win, WWE executives Bruce Prichard and Triple H. Triple H embraced his new champion in what looked to be a cathartic moment for both men.

Triple H Touts Record-Breaking WWE WrestleMania

Speaking at the post-WrestleMania 40 press conference, Triple H explained exactly why he believes this was the biggest WrestleMania of all time and touted attendance figures that “destroyed” gate records while poking fun at Snoop Dogg who may have got slightly confused about the number of fans he announced on WrestleMania Sunday as the WWE Hall of Famer snuck in a 420 reference on the show:

I do feel like watching that this was the biggest WrestleMania of all time. When you break it down, I have spent the last four days getting text messages saying things like – let’s say it was 3 ‘o’clock, it opened at 12 ‘o’clock, at 3 ‘o’clock I get the text that we just blew last year’s number out of the water.

We set records this week for social media by far, we set records for merchandise by far, we set records for sponsorship by far, and just destroyed records for gate. This was legitimately on every metric the biggest WrestleMania of all time.

We had 72,755 in attendance tonight for a total – no matter what Snoop Dogg says – of 145,298 fans across two days of WrestleMania. That does not include NXT, that does not include The World, that doesn’t include any of that. I’m just gonna say it again because I’m digesting it, 145, 298.

Famously AEW claims the record for biggest ticket-selling wrestling show in history when All In packed in over 81,000 fans into Wembley Stadium in August 2023. However, like everything in wrestling these claims have been disputed and following Triple H’s comments, they are sure to be looked at all over again.
