WrestleMania

WWE pay-per-view show
(Redirected from WrestleMania (PPV series))

WrestleMania is a yearly professional wrestling pay-per-view and livestreaming event produced by WWE since 1985. It is the company's biggest show of the year so it has nicknames like:

  • "The Showcase of the Immortals"
  • "The Granddaddy of 'em All"
  • "The Grandest Stage of Them All"'

WrestleMania is equal to the National Football League's Super Bowl and Major League Baseball's World Series.

The fortieth edition of the event took place on April 6 and 7, 2024, at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
