WWE Clash At The Castle is on course to be the largest non-WrestleMania gate in wrestling history.
Clash At The Castle will mark the first time that WWE have held a stadium show in the United Kingdom in 30 years. For decades UK fans called on the company to bring a pay-per-view back across the Atlantic believing that any show of that magnitude would be a huge success.
With Clash At The Castle a little more than 24 hours away it appears that those claims from fans are about to be proven correct.
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that more than 65,000 people are already confirmed to be in attendance, while it’s set to be the largest non-WrestleMania gate in history. This eclipses even the famed Tokyo Dome shows in Japan in the 1990’s.
“At press time there were 66,465 tickets out with 49,000 paid. They blocked off 4,000 seats this past week and people in those sections were moved to unfilled sections. They can put 67,580 in and can expand to more than 71,000 if needed.
There are more tickets out than for any WWE show in six years, although the paid attendance will be less than either night of this year’s WrestleMania. But it will be, by far, the largest gate in pro wrestling history that is not a WrestleMania, even beating the major Tokyo Dome shows in the 90s. Given the ticket prices at the beginning, when most tickets are sold.”
