WWE Clash at the Castle will be a historic event in a number of ways. It will be the first major pay-per-view event held in the United Kingdom since SummerSlam 1992. It shattered WWE’s record for the most fans signing up for pre-sale tickets of any event in history, including WrestleMania.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that the September 3rd event at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium had strong initial ticket sales. It had just over 40,000 tickets sold in the first week after 30,000 were sold in the pre-sale. Also, 10,000 more tickets on the first day to the general public.

A full sellout for that stadium would be 69,000. It’s nearly 10,000 more than WrestleMania 38 did each night in April. According to reports, WWE management were overjoyed with the sales figures. They acknowledged the significance.

[It] will be the largest non-WrestleMania gate in the history of pro wrestling and actually beat most WrestleManias for that matter.

WWE hiked ticket prices because of the great demand among fans. That is why the gate is so high. Roman Reigns, the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, is still on the card, and WWE has a potential opponent lined up for him. To get latest updates, stay tuned to Ringside News.
