WWE’s anticipated event at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium now has an official name, as Clash At The Castle goes down on Saturday, 3 September.
WWE announced on 12 April that their first UK stadium event in three decades was scheduled for Saturday, 3 September, with pre-registration for tickets setting a new record that outmatched any previous WrestleMania. It’s now been confirmed that the event will be named Clash At The Castle, with tickets going on sale on 20 May.
This was reportedly confirmed by former two-time WWE Champion Drew McIntyre during a video package at tonight’s live event at The O2 in London, England. Of the event, ‘The Scottish Warrior’ stated how excited he was for the event (h/t WWE.com):
“The city of Cardiff is ready for WWE Clash at the Castle on September 3, and I know that everyone in Wales, across the UK and around the entire world is ready to make history with us, too. Get your tickets and be part of the magic. I can’t wait to hear just how loud Principality Stadium can get.”
A logo for the event was revealed, as was the news that fans can register for an exclusive pre-sale to purchase tickets on 18 May.

The event is scheduled to mark WWE’s first stadium show since the 1992 SummerSlam pay-per-view, which famously saw Bret Hart drop the Intercontinental Championship to The British Bulldog. Although they’ve held pay-per-views in the UK since, such as the annual Rebellion and Insurrextion events, they’ve been held in smaller venues, with the last Insurrextion in 2003 emanating from Newcastle-upon-Tyne’s Telewest Arena.
Although no matches have officially been confirmed, WWE is expected to go all out with Clash At The Castle. Drew McIntyre, for example, is heavily expected to face either Tyson Fury or Roman Reigns, the latter of which would be for the Undisputed Universal Championship. Expect match announcements to begin either at or following SummerSlam on 30 July.
