-- Actual WrestleMania 34 attendance was said to be between 60,000 - 65,000 though WWE publicly announced it as 78,133 which they had to do to beat the 75,167 announced fans at the 2014 event in the same stadium. Due to a significant amount of late purchases due to the announcement that Daniel Bryan would be wrestling, the event was nonetheless a legitimate sell-out.

-- Orlando, FL is once again looking to make a bid to host WrestleMania soon. The city hosted the event in 2008 and 2017 and is looking to put in a proposal for either 2023 or 2025. In preparation, the county has requested a $1 million increase in resort taxes in order to cover the expenses to bring WrestleMania back.

-- There is some speculation that Bam Bam Bigelow will be going into the Hall of Fame next year when WrestleMania comes to New Jersey, which is Bigelow's home state. Bigelow was originally slated to be one of this year's inductees but when that didn't happen, Mark Henry was added instead.
