Wrestlemania 32 has come and gone.

But its presence is still being felt in a big way.

A big financial way.

The event in April generated $170.4 million in economic impact for the region, according to a study conducted by Enigma Research Corp.

“We are proud that WWE’s biggest event in history was held here in Arlington,” said Mayor Jeff Williams. “The event was an incredible success for our city, and we would like to thank the Dallas Cowboys for their tireless efforts in bringing WrestleMania to AT&T Stadium.”

WrestleMania 32 set a World Wrestling Entertainment attendance record of 101,763 at AT&T Stadium. The previous WWE mark was 93,173 set in 1987 at the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit.

According to the survey, 72 percent of the fans who attended the event were from outside the region and stayed an average of 3.9 nights.

WrestleMania 33 will be held April 2 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. Tickets go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster.
