Clash at the Castle proved to be a huge success in the UK and now WWE has touted that the event has smashed several massive, historical records.
Clash at the Castle in Cardiff, Wales was a runaway success for WWE with over 62,000 fans packing inside the Principality Stadium to witness the company’s first stadium shores in the UK for over thirty years.
The highlights of the night saw Sheamus and Gunther compete for the Intercontinental Championship in a bruising, five-star effort. Edge and Rey Mysterio picked up a huge win over The Judgment Day but the worst was to come for the legendary duo as Dominik Mysterio turned his back on them.
In the night’s main event, the UK crowd was firmly behind Drew McIntyre to unseat Roman Reigns as Unified WWE Universal Champion but Solo Sikoa put paid to that with The Tribal Chief barely escaping with his titles.
Now it appears that Clash at the Castle has broken several huge records with the event said to be the most watched international premium live event in history. As well as breaking records on social media and YouTube, the most important record to WWE might well be that the event garnered the biggest European gate ever.
WWE’s Chief Content Officer Triple H took to social media to share a graphic and a teasing message, asking where fans want to see WWE next:
“#WWECastle was a massive success for @WWE across all lines of business and the #WWEUniverse in the UK… the next question is where should we go next?!”

WWE’s next premium live event is Extreme Rules which will take place on October 8th live from somewhere that knows a little something about extreme – Philadelphia, PA.
