Major Update On Upcoming WWE UK Pay-Per-View

WWE UK

A new report has claimed a UK WWE Pay-Per-View is coming in September.

The last WWE pay-per-view show to take place on British soil was Insurrextion in 2003 but that could all be about to change.

According to a new report, from WrestleVotes, the company will be hosting an event on September 3rd at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales – which was first reported by Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT in September.

Interestingly that is the same weekend that AEW are scheduled to hold their ‘All Out’ pay-per-view.

The most famous WWE pay-per-view to be held in the United Kingdom in SummerSlam in 1992. The event held at Wembley Stadium, saw the British Bulldog defeat Bret Hart in the main event to claim the Intercontinental Championship.

In the years that followed, the company regularly returned to UK shores with smaller shows, famously holding One Night Only in 1997. On the show Shawn Michaels defeated hometown hero British Bulldog, which was supposed to lead to a rematch at Mayhem In Manchester the following year. However, by the time the event rolled around the show had been downgraded to a house show.

WWE continued to hold pay-per-views in the UK up until 2003 and Insurrextion in Newcastle, England. Despite the lack of pay-per-view events, the company has continued to tour the UK, with these tours often hosting episodes of Raw and SmackDown.

It was recently announced that WWE would be returning to the UK in April as part of a short European tour. It has already been confirmed that Ronda Rousey and Roman Reigns will be appearing.

Inside The Ropes will continue to update this story as it develops.
