The majority of the world knew that there was a big football game taking place on Sunday night, a little thing called the Super Bowl. WWE wanted the world to know that their big event is pretty popular as well. Through their social media account, the company boasted that they drew 72,219 fans when they did Wrestlemania in the same stadium that the NFL drew 70,228 today. Vince McMahon loves to taunt numbers when he beats big companies.
