A WWE commentator thinks the success of Clash at the Castle in Wales could lead to an eventual WrestleMania taking place in the UK.
To date, WrestleMania has never taken place outside North America, with WWE reserving special premium live events in recent years for Saudi Arabia as well. The company brought a stadium show to the UK for only the second time ever – and the first for 30 years – when Clash at the Castle took place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
Over 62,000 fans packed the stadium to witness Roman Reigns break hearts as he defeated Drew McIntyre in the main event – with a little help from Solo Sikoa – to remain WWE Universal Champion.
One man that had the best seat in the house for the show was WWE announcer Corey Graves, who said on his After The Bell podcast that he can see WrestleMania taking place across the pond one day:
“Here’s your headline for the week. In the opinion of Corey Graves and many other people who were backstage who were around the stadium in Cardiff. You guys have been clamouring for Wrestlemania. I’d say you made a pretty strong case for yourselves to get one in the near future.”
WrestleMania won’t be heading to the shores of the UK in the next couple of years however as WrestleMania Goes Hollywood in LA in 2023 and the event will be heading to Philadelphia one year later for the monumental WrestleMania 40.
