SAN JOSE, CA (KTRK) -- WrestleMania 31 shattered the all-time attendance record at Levi's Stadium. Nearly 76,980 screaming fans packed the venue to witness the sports-entertainment thrilling spectacular. The previous attendance record for Levi's Stadium was 70,799. ABC-13 was the only Houston station granted exclusive access.

The crowd witnessed Houston's own Undertaker defeat the maniacal Bray Wyatt, improving the Dead Man's WrestleMania streak to 22-1.

Fans went ballistic when The Rock pulled UFC-star Ronda Rousey from her front-row seat, into the ring, to confront the power-couple of Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. It quickly became apparent that Rousey was no friend of the Authority but rather a friend of the more than 76,000 fans in attendance.

The main event featured a brutal encounter between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and challenger, Roman Reigns. Money in the Bank winner, Seth Rollins shocked the world by not only entering the match but by becoming the new WWE Champion in the process.

WrestleMania 32 takes place on Sunday, April 3, 2016 from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. Ticket information will be announced later this year.
