I always love this thing. No event in wrestling has the kind of history that WrestleMania holds. We’re coming up on the thirty fifth edition, which is going to be one of the biggest (certainly longest) of all time. There are other big shows throughout WWE’s history, including the Royal Rumble, which gets an annual history package based on the show’s numbers. Now it’s time for WrestleMania to follow suit.
This is very cool. Check out WrestleMania By The Numbers:
WWE has released a video called WrestleMania By The Numbers, looking back at the show’s history with a series of numbers, including attendance, win/losses and appearances. The list includes entries from individual shows as well as over time. There is one number that is changed, with King Kong Bundy’s alleged eight second victory over SD Jones at the first WrestleMania being switched to a much more accurate twenty four second victory instead.
Opinion: I could watch this kind of thing all day. These videos are well put together and do a lot of the math that fans aren’t going to do for themselves. Some of these numbers are more interesting than others, but that’s what makes things like this fun to watch. You’re probably going to pick up on something you didn’t know, or at least hadn’t picked up on before, which is where WWE thrives when they want to.
Which of these records is most impressive? Which will fall first? Let us know in the comments below.
