WWE expanded to the UK market with the introduction of NXT UK in June 2018. Prior to that, they had already introduced the NXT UK Championship. Since then, a few UK-centric events have taken place, but Clash at the Castle will be something totally different.
The Clash At The Castle Premium Live Event will be taking place on Saturday, September 3rd, 2022, at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. This will mark the country’s first major stadium event to take place in the UK since SummerSlam 1992.
While speaking during today’s second quarter 2022 investor call, Nick Khan revealed that WWE is holding the Clash At The Castle Premium Live Event in Wales due to strong UK ratings in general. They also have their eyes on Australia and India, although he didn’t specifically say that huge events are on the horizon for those overseas markets.
Nick Khan said UK ratings are very strong and is why they are holding ‘Clash’ there. With international markets, they also are focused on India and Australia among others.
The Clash At The Castle Premium Live Event is currently headlined by Drew McIntyre vs Roman Reigns for the Undisputed Universal Championship. We’ll have to see whether the event will turn out to be a huge success and how many similar events are coming for Vince McMahon’s former company.
