Drew McIntyre has discussed the possibility of WWE holding WrestleMania in the UK ahead of Clash at the Castle in Wales.
Wrestling fans in the UK were delighted when WWE announced that they were bringing a stadium show back to the country for the first time in 30 years. In 1992, WWE took Wembley Stadium by storm with SummerSlam which saw The British Bulldog defeat Bret Hart for the Intercontinental Championship in the main event.
WWE will present Clash at the Castle from the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on the 3rd of September with Drew McIntyre challenging the Unified WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns in the presumed main event.
While this show is a huge coup for the UK, many fans are still clamouring for WWE to bring the grandest stage of them all to the country and bring WrestleMania across the pond.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on his Insight podcast, Drew McIntyre discussed the possibility of that happening in the future, especially with the huge ticket sales reported for Clash at the Castle:
“Yeah, I can’t see why not. I’m not going to talk about numbers that I have heard at the moment until they are official, but we have seen the numbers that have been released, just the demand for the tickets broke records initially. Right now we are on course for some big, big numbers from a business perspective.”
“But people watching and tuning into Clash at the Castle and seeing the live audience, how loud and rowdy and crazy they are with the chants we have seen in the past with Raw and SmackDown that have come from the UK. I know a lot of people are going to go ‘Why don’t we do a WrestleMania here?’ It’s gonna be crazy, imagine those wild UK fans and people coming from all across the world joining in the passion, the atmosphere, and the insanity of the UK fans.”
The UK won’t be holding WrestleMania 40 as WWE has already announced that will be held in Philadelphia in 2024.
