Wrestlemania XXXI Date: March 29, 2015 Location: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, California Attendance: 76,976 Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield, Jerry Lawler This is an interesting show as most people really weren’t looking forward to it.

Wrestlemania XXIX Date: April 7, 2013 Location: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey Attendance: 80,676 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, John Bradshaw Layfield It’s hard to believe this show was almost a year ago.

Wrestlemania XXI Date: April 3, 2005 Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California Attendance: 20,193 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Michael Cole, Tazz If last year’s show was about change, this one is ten times stronger.

Wrestlemania XVII Date: April 1, 2001 Location: Astrodome, Houston, Texas Attendance: 67,925 Commentators: Jim Ross, Paul Heyman After putting up with last year’s mess, this is my reward.

Wrestlemania XV Date: March 28, 1999 Location: First Union Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Attendance: 20,276 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler This is a somewhat forgotten show and it’s pretty easy to see why: there isn’t much on here worth seeing.
