    Highest gate for the worst wrestlemania.

    By the way, considering how Vince has phased out the word “Wrestling” from the product, how many want to bet that next year will be the final wrestlemania before it gets renamed?

    Unless these figures are adjusted for inflation, recent WM’s will always have a higher gate than older (better?) ones, because the ticket prices are higher
