As seen in the past, the Indian community is very important to the WWE as they represent a huge amount of viewers.
This year’s Wrestlemania was being promoted as one of the biggest in recent memory and it did deliver.
India.com reported that Wrestlemania 38 was seen by 56.1 Million Indian fans which is 29% more than Wrestlemania 37’s Indian Viewership. Wrestlemania Saturday viewership was up by 34% and 33% regarding Wrestlemania Sunday.
On the following night, which was the RAW after Wrestlemania, the debut of the Indian wrestler Veer Mahan saw a viewership boosting of +9%. We’ll have to see what WWE has in store for him now.
It is incredible to see how many people got involved in this huge event that was Wrestlemania 38. The event even beat Superbowl LVI in terms of social media impressions with 2.2 Billion for WWE compared to 1.8 Billion for the Superbowl.
It has been discussed in the past that WWE might make a move to reach out more to the Indian fans just like they did with Saudi Arabia. Who knows what will happen?
