Almost 24 hours after WrestleMania and with the dust settling on a new WWE landscape, all the stories about what happened on Sunday night are remarkable.

From fans angered about a delay getting into the stadium to the claims that the sound at the end of the event was altered to drown out the boos from the fans in attendance.

False numbers?

Despite the rumours of problems amongst the fans at WrestleMania last night, the show went off largely unhindered and will actually be remembered as one of the most surprising in recent years.

Last night saw two records set during an almost seven hour long show in Dallas, Texas and both revolved around the appearance of The Rock.

The Great One entered AT&T Stadium armed with the huge announcement of the official attendance at WrestleMania and the number blew everyone away.

It was announced that 101,763 people had amassed inside the home of the Dallas Cowboys to witness the show.

However a few hours removed from that reveal, the numbers have been brought into question courtesy of Dave Meltzer.

Bryan Alvarez shared the following tweet:

Claiming that rather than 101,000 people attended, less than 94,000 went to WrestleMania is a big step down.

Is it possible that over 7,000 people were able to sneak into the stadium? Could the WWE have miscounted? Did they lie to protect the reputation of a show that had been billed for weeks as over 100,000 people will attend?

Whatever the reason, the show went off and was surely one of the most successful WrestleManias in history.

New Champions

WrestleMania saw several titles change hands and all eyes will be on tonight's episode of RAW to see how the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns will respond.

New Intercontinental Champion Zack Ryder will now adapt to life in his position in WWE while the brand new WWE Women's Championship gets its first run out on RAW tonight.

The RAW following WrestleMania is often considered to be the best of the year and it will be fascinating to see what 2016's instalment has in store.
