Very impressive.

WWE’s period of financial prosperity is continuing.

WWE have announced that Money in the Bank 2023 has set the record for highest-grossing arena event in WWE history.

In an official statement, WWE declared:

“WWE today announced that WWE Money In The Bank, which emanated from The O2 in London on Saturday, became the most successful and highest-grossing Money In The Bank of all time. Notably, Money In The Bank set a new record for highest-grossing arena event in WWE history, and Friday Night SmackDown from The O2 became the highest-grossing SmackDown of all time. The weekend generated a combined gate of more than $5.4 million.

The Money In The Bank Premium Live Event also set new records for viewership, sponsorship, merchandise and social media:

Viewership jumped 17 percent from last year’s record and surpassed the last UK premium live event – Clash at the Castle – by 30 percent.

Sponsorship revenue was up nine percent versus the record set in 2022.

WWE Money in the Bank marked the highest-grossing arena event for venue merchandise in WWE history.

WWE Money in the Bank set a new record for On Location fan experience packages, becoming the highest-grossing, non-WrestleMania event ever.

The event became the most social Money In The Bank of all time, with video views of the Bloodline Civil War Match reaching 40 million in the first 48 hours – quadruple the amount from the top clip at WWE Night of Champions: Jimmy Uso superkicking Roman Reigns.

Additionally, the June 30 edition of SmackDown on FOX from the O2 drew 2.51 million total viewers, up 17 percent versus a year ago, and was No. 1 in the 18-49 demographic with a .7 rating and 897,000 total viewers, up 39 percent versus a year ago”.
