Huge Merchandise Sales at WrestleMania; WWE/ROH Talks Reportedly Dead
— According to WWE sources who would have direct knowledge of any negotiations, the talks of WWE buying ROH are considered dead. However, the two companies are still in discussions about licensing old content for the WWE Network, but there is no agreement in place for that either.
— WrestleMania 33 live event merchandise grossed $3.7 million, putting it in second place all-time behind only WrestleMania 32 in Dallas last year (which had an attendance approximately 30,000 higher). Assuming WrestleMania 32 had between 60,000 to 65,000 people, that would work out to between $57 to $62 per person, which would make it the largest figure in the history of wrestling.
