Are WWE Bringing Another Premium Live Event To The United Kingdom?

WWE comes to the United Kingdom

On September 4th 2022 WWE hosted a major stadium event in the United Kingdom for the first time in three decades.

The event titled Clash at the Castle served as a long-awaited follow up to SummerSlam 1992 which was held at Wembley Stadium, and headlined by the British Bulldog and Bret Hart.

However, it appears that fans in the UK won’t have to wait another 30 years to see another Premium Live Event.

WWE Premium Live Event Potentially Coming To The United Kingdom

Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer discussed WWE’s plans for their 2023 Premium Live Event schedule. The report suggests that there are a “lot of changes” on the way, which could include a move away from gimmick events. This could even see the return of the King of the Ring.

While Clash At The Castle was deemed a success by the company, there were never any public announcements confirming a return in the future. Interestingly, Meltzer notes that the plans for 2023 include a show in the United Kingdom alongside the two planned events in Saudi Arabia.

“There are a lot of PPV changes rumored for 2023 which include the idea of doing one PPV per year from the U.K. to go along with the two from Saudi Arabia. The other change seems to be less gimmick named PPV shows.”

WWE Clash at the Castle was held at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales and was headlined by the clash between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. With the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship on the line it was Reigns who emerged victorious thanks to a helping hand from a debuting Solo Sikoa.

Earlier in the night Gunther and Sheamus captured the imagination of fans, turning in one of the most hard-hitting performances that a WWE ring has seen in many years. The two stars held nothing back as they beat each other from pillar to post, with both earning a standing ovation from the crowd as the match came to an end.
