The numbers are in for the special encore presentation of WrestleMania 30 that aired on ESPN on Sunday night, and the news is pretty surprising.
Sunday night’s WrestleMania 30 special on ESPN averaged 839,000 viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily.
The special ended up ranking as the highest rated show on ESPN for the entire weekend, although with no live sports taking place in North America due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, it’s not as impressive as it might sound.
For the coveted 18-to-49 year old demographic, the WrestleMania 30 special averaged a 0.31 rating and finished 30th for the night on cable television.
