WWE sets new pre-sale ticket registration record for UK stadium event

Advertisements

WWE is off to a strong start for its upcoming UK show on Saturday, September 3 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, which marks the first major PPV event to be held in the United Kingdom since SummerSlam 1992.

The event broke WWE’s record for having more fans registering for pre-sale tickets than any event in history and that includes WrestleMania.

More than 59,000 people pre-registered for tickets in the first 24 hours. It will take place on the same weekend as the AEW All Out show, currently scheduled for Sunday, September 4th.

The name of the event has yet to be revealed and it’s too early for any matches to be confirmed. Drew McIntyre pushed the idea of WWE hosting a stadium show in the United Kingdom for the last few years once he won the WWE Title at WrestleMania 36. WWE discussed McIntyre vs. Tyson Fury for the WWE Title headline UK PPV in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic nixed those plans.

SummerSlam 1992 was held in London inside Wembley Stadium and featured The British Bulldog defeating Bret Hart to become the WWE Champion.
