WrestleMania 32 = WWE’s Largest Crowd Ever Already?

WrestleMania 23 on April 1, 2007, at Ford Field in Detroit, the real attendance was 74,687, however, the announced number was 80,103. While that is an increase of over 5,000 attendees, WWE always inflates the number, promote it as the real deal, and refer to it as an “entertainment” number when called on the numbers legitimacy.
