History and Significance of Wrestlemania

WWE just concluded its 38th annual Wrestlemania event. The show took place over two days at a packed AT&T Stadium in Texas. More than 130 thousand tickets were sold. In 2015, WrestleMania made the list of most valuable sports brands, even topping the UEFA Champions League.
