WrestleMania 35 Nominated For A Sports Event Of The Year Award

Although WrestleMania 35 was a year and a half ago, it has now been nominated for the Sports Event of the Year award from the Sports Business Journal. They were among a number of other nominees, including the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend, the Miami Open, the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, and the 2019 NFL Draft. The NFL Draft won the award.

WWE put out a statement of their own detailing the night of action the event was. They also touted themselves for having their first women’s main event in the show’s history. Here is the full quote:

“At the prestigious Sports Business Journal’s Sports Business Awards on Wednesday, WrestleMania 35 was recognized as a nominee for Sports Event of the Year.

WrestleMania 35, which emanated from MetLife Stadium, was an unforgettable night of action, featuring a Winner Take All Triple Threat Match with Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey, Kofi Kingston challenging Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship, and Brock Lesnar defending the Universal Title against Seth Rollins.

WWE made the most of having its biggest annual spectacle in the nation’s biggest market, drawing 82,265 fans to WrestleMania 35 at MetLife Stadium and shattering the event’s records for viewership and engagement across social and digital media. For the first time, WWE showcased its Women’s Division in the WrestleMania main event. It was a successful end to a week’s worth of activities in the New York City metro area that demonstrated the power of the WWE brand and its ability to garner attention on a grand scale, both in person and across digital channels.”

This show was best remembered for a few reasons. First and foremost was Becky Lynch defeating Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to win the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships in the main event. The show is also remembered for the culmination of KofiMania with Kofi Kingston winning the WWE Championship from Daniel Bryan.
