WWE (NYSE: WWE) announced that WrestleMania 32 set a WWE attendance record of 101,763, as fans from all 50 states and 35 countries converged on AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The previous WWE attendance record was at WrestleMania 3 in 1987, where 93,173 fans filled the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit.

WrestleMania 32 also became the highest grossing live event in WWE history as the annual pop-culture extravaganza grossed $17.3 million. Last year’s WrestleMania 31 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. previously held WWE’s record for gross revenue at $12.6 million.

“On behalf of the Dallas Cowboys organization, we congratulate WWE on their historic achievement,” said Dallas Cowboys Chief Brand Officer Charlotte Jones Anderson. “WrestleMania was an incredible spectacle like none other, and we look forward to hosting it again at AT&T Stadium.”

WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon added: “We are thrilled that we made history tonight at WrestleMania, further cementing its place as one of the top sports and entertainment events in the world. We thank our fans, the Dallas Cowboys and the entire Jones family for their overwhelming support.”

WrestleMania 33 occurs Sunday, April 2, 2017 from the Orlando Citrus Bowl in Orlando. Ticket information will be announced later this year.
