WWE Officially Announces UK PPV

WWE will air a major show from the UK for the first time in 30 years

After years of wishing, hoping, and tantalising speculation, WWE have officially announced their first UK PPV in 30 years.

Scheduled for The Principality Stadium in Cardiff on September 3, WWE will run their first globally aired UK PPV/‘premium live event’ since SummerSlam 1992 in Wembley Stadium.

Announcing the news, WWE posted the following press release on their website:

“Principality Stadium is the perfect place for a major event, hosting our amazing fans from Wales, throughout all of Europe, and around the world,” said John Porco, WWE Senior Vice President, Live Events. “The weekend will be filled with a variety of WWE experiences that we believe will leave a lasting memory, on par with SummerSlam at Wembley Stadium in 1992.

“Wales will provide an iconic location for WWE’s return to the UK after 30 years and showcase our country to a global audience of millions, including extended reach in the USA,” said Welsh Government Minister for Economy Vaughan Gething. “This is set to be the perfect addition to a huge year of sport, entertainment and culture in Wales that will attract people from across the globe to experience what our country has to offer.

"We're extremely proud that Principality Stadium has been chosen by WWE to host this major event, which is testament to the stadium's reputation as a world-class venue,” said Mark Williams, Principality Stadium Manager. “Principality Stadium is unique in its position at the heart of the city centre, which will undoubtedly offer WWE fans an unrivalled event experience both inside and outside of the stadium and bring great benefit to the wider city of Cardiff."

WWE have ran several UK only PPVs throughout the years, such as Rebellion and Insurrextion during the Attitude Era, whilst news of an upcoming event has been rumoured for some time now.
