Some good news ahead of WWE’s return to a UK stadium, with the vast majority of Clash At The Castle tickets having been sold.
News of WWE Clash At The Castle, the promotion’s first major UK stadium event since the 1992 SummerSlam, was met with a gleeful reaction from the UK audience. There hadn’t been a major event in the United Kingdom since June 2003, when they promoted the fourth Insurrextion.
It’s now being reported that at least four-fifths of available tickets for the Welsh card have been sold. WrestleTix indicated as such on Twitter, stating that of the 71,810 tickets put on sale, 60,293 had been purchased. By that calculation, only 11,517 tickets remain, with just weeks to go before the event:

From the moment Clash At The Castle was announced, it was revealed that 59,000 hopeful fans had pre-registered for tickets to the event, breaking a company record that even outlasts any WrestleMania.
The event was confirmed on 12 April, scheduled for Saturday, 3 September from Cardiff’s Principality Stadium. No matches have yet been made, though Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury have both been penned for major involvement on the premium live event.
It’s believed that ‘The Scottish Warrior’ will face either Fury, or Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Universal Championship. McIntyre had previously been slated to face Sheamus on a recent Friday Night SmackDown to determine the challenger for the title, though he ended up facing Butch instead.
