WWE revealed that 62,296 fans packed out the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, on September 3rd for WWE’s Clash at the Castle. The show was the first return of a major WWE stadium show to the UK in over 30 years.
The premium live event, which aired on BT Sport 2 in the UK, saw Drew McIntyre unable to dethrone Roman Reigns as the Undisputed World Champion – despite ally Tyson Fury willing him on from ringside.
In a post-event press conference, WWE’s executive vice president for Talent Relations, Paul ‘HHH’ Levesque, said the event was a huge success, and talked of the possible future of the ‘Clash‘ IP.
“As far as the events go, when you put 62,000 fans going crazy like you had tonight in a stadium like this, it’s hard not to want to do it again, and it’s hard not to want to do it in a lot of different places that I think we will get this same type of reaction too. So there are a lot of markets in the world, there are a lot of stadiums in the world, there are a lot of places [for another Clash event],” said Levesque.
“There’s not a place on this planet that doesn’t know WWE, that WWE Superstars don’t go there and have fans all over them, and giving us this type of reaction. That is amazing. We want to go see those fans, we want to get in front of them, we want to be in stadiums all around the globe doing this kind of event, and tonight was step one in that process, and I think you’ll see and hear a lot of announcements over the next few years that’ll be very exciting for everybody, and hopefully all of you have your passports and stuff, and can visit us there as well,” he added.
