Latest on rumored WWE pay-per-view in the UK next year



There’s been a lot of talk about the rumored WWE pay-per-view event in the UK next year.

WhatCulture reported that WWE could be bringing a big show back to the UK in 2022 at either Principality Stadium in Cardiff (70,000 capacity) or Wembley Stadium in London (90,000 capacity).

Alex McCarthy of TalkSport reported that Cardiff’s Principality Stadium is WWE’s front-runner to hold the event as WWE has been working on that venue for a number of months. It was said that this is WWE’s preferred venue, but nothing is final right now. “Plans for a WWE pay-per-view in the UK are looking ‘very positive’ after last week.”

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that both of those venues are still in the running, but it is definitely still not a “done deal.”

It was added that WWE is looking to run more stadium shows starting next year considering the success of this year’s SummerSlam from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

WWE hasn’t hosted a pay-per-view in the country since the 1992 SummerSlam. It’s been documented WWE wanted Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury to work the main event of a PPV event in the UK last year, but plans were nixed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
