What are the largest attendances at wrestling cards.  I've checked on the googles bot I can only find kayfabed numbers.  Anyone got the goods?

The largest legit attendance by far are those two North Korea shows that WCW/NJPW ran, because if you didn’t go you got shot. Vince would love to get that kind of deal going.

WCW attached their name to the North Korea shows through that tape delayed PPV they aired of some of the matches. But other than the presence of Bischoff, Flair, and Sonny Onoo, who was serving as a liaison between Bischoff and the New Japan office, none of the other non-Japanese wrestlers that were there were part of WCW at the time and they had nothing to do with it. IIRC Bischoff said he didn't even have approval from Turner or anyone and just went, deciding he would face whatever consequences may come later.

Was that legit?  It's only listed in places that also say WMIII was 90+ and everyone is pretty much in agreement it was closer to 70.

This is what Meltzer wrote about it in the Observer: "The attendance as would be normally announced for an event was 93,730 people, breaking the WWE’s all-time total attendance (paid plus comps) record of 79,127 set at the 1992 SummerSlam show at Wembley Stadium, which barely beat out the 1987 WrestleMania III show which did more than 78,000. The actual number in the building was 97,769. ... the company had pushed the idea from the start of drawing 100,000 people (pretty much insuring [sic] they would have to announce a number over that or it would be a disappointment to the fans) ... The WWE announced the number at 101,763, which is the mythical number “for entertainment purposes” as Vince McMahon told me about the difference between real numbers and announced numbers years ago."

I remember hearing that if you added in all the stadium staff and everyone associated with WWE, basically every human in the stadium, you might get somewhere near worked number.

Calling Matt Farmer.

Matt did the most through and well researched list for cards going back to the 20's I believe. If he shows up on this thread maybe he'll be kind enough to share a link.
