5 of the largest wrestling arenas in the world
You know the strange thing about professional wrestling? Despite having one of the largest fanbases in the entire world, their major events are often undersized when compared to other sporting events. While football (not the American type) averages 30,000-40,000 people at least every game, WWE events usually pack in less than 20,000.
But, all of that changes when really big events come to town. Wrestlemania is the most obvious example, of course, where you see upwards of 50,000 people pack into arenas to experience the biggest event on the wrestling calendar.
But, which of these arenas can hold the most number of people? Well, that's what we're here to find out today. So, without any further ado, here is our list of 5 of the largest wrestling arenas in the world:
#5 Wembley Stadium (Capacity: 80,355 for Summerslam '92)
The legendary Wembley Stadium in London played host to one of the first ever WWE pay per views to be held outside the United States when Vince McMahon decided to take The Biggest Party of the Summer across the pond to the United Kingdom.
Summerslam '92 proved to be a monumental success that attracted an astonishing number of people that was officially confirmed at 80,355. The huge number of people in attendance got to celebrate the crowning moment of hometown boy British Bulldog as he defeated Bret Hart in the main event of the evening.
