It has long been rumored but WWE announced after Raw that WrestleMania 32 will be held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. The home of the Dallas Cowboys holds 80,000 for football but can fit over 105,000 for other events. The record attendance for a football game was 105,121 in September 2009 when the Giants beat the Cowboys in the stadium’s first regular season game. The 2010 NBA All-Star Game drew 108,713 fans to the stadium, setting the Guinness World Record for the largest attendance for a basketball game.
WWE will undoubtedly be pulling out all the stops to try to fill Jerry World. An Undertaker retirement match would not seem out of the question, especially if WWE decides to keep him off the WrestleMania XXXI show. There has always been talk of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin returning for one more match in his home state, so I’m sure Vince McMahon and company will be working the Rattlesnake over.
One thing to remember is that although the capacity can reach over 105,000, WWE generally has a pretty elaborate and space-consuming entrance way for WrestleMania, which will cut down on some of those potential seats.
