WWE Reveal WrestleMania 38 Was The Most-Watched PPV In Company History

A big WrestleMania for WWE

WWE's partnership with Peacock has proven to be fruitful for Vince McMahon's organisation. 

During the Q1 2022 earnings call, it was revealed that WrestleMania 38 was the most-viewed pay-per-view in company history. 

Global unique viewership of WWE content on the streaming service has also increased by 54%, while unique viewership in the United States was up 61% year-over-year. 

"In 2021, we saw a 15% increase in viewership from 2020, which was the last WrestleMania to air in the US on WWE Network. This momentum continued into 2022, where this past month, we saw a 61% increase from 2021. We also doubled WWE viewership in total on Peacock over the past WrestleMania weekend compared to the year prior," Nick Khan said.

"We did not hit a ceiling our first year on Peacock. During WrestleMania weekend, nearly one-third of all Peacock accounts viewed WWE content. WrestleMania 38 was the second most-watched live event in the history of Peacock behind only this year's Super Bowl. This tells us we're reaching new fans on the service and growing WWE's audience with the growth of Peacock alongside the existing robust partnership and viewership with USA with Raw and FOX with SmackDown."

WrestleMania 38 took place over two days on April 2 and April 3 at Arlington's AT&T Stadium. The show featured the likes of Sami Zayn vs. Johnny Knoxville, Bianca Belair vs. Becky Lynch, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin vs. Kevin Owens, and Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar.
