WrestleMania 31 was the thirty-first annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by WWE. It took place on March 29, 2015, at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.[2]

It was the first WrestleMania event to be held in the San Francisco Bay Area, the sixth to be held in the state of California (after 2, VII, XII, 2000, and 21), and the sixth to be held in an open-air venue (after IX, XXIV, XXVI, XXVIII, and 29).

Nine matches took place at the event, with two being shown on the pre-show.

The event was also notable for Sting's debut match in WWE, in which he lost to Triple H.

The event received highly positive reviews from fans and critics alike; some critics called it one of the best ever WrestleMania events.[3] WWE reported that the show was highest grossing WWE event ever, drawing a revenue of $12.6 million. The company also claimed an attendance figure of 76,976.[4]

The logo for the event included a red "play" button. According to a San Jose Mercury News article, Vince McMahon explained that the play button highlighted the technical prowess of Silicon Valley.[7] There were two theme songs for the event. The main theme was "Rise" by David Guetta featuring Skylar Grey, while the secondary theme was "Money and the Power" by Kid Ink. The event included live musical performances from Skylar Grey, Kid Ink, Travis Barker and Aloe Blacc.[8] Grammy Award winner LL Cool J appeared in the opening video package for the event.[9]

WrestleMania 31 consisted of professional wrestling matches that involved wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds or storylines that played out on WWE's primary television programs, Raw and SmackDown. Wrestlers portrayed faces (heroes) or heels (villains) as they followed a series of events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches.[13][14]
