Tour of Principality Stadium
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 said at Live Events:
Principality Stadium is the perfect place for a major event, hosting our amazing fans from Wales, throughout all of Europe, and around the world. 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.
A boxing match in Principality Stadium, which normally holds 75,000 people, is said to have brought in 78,000 fans during a fight with Anthony Joshua.
Drew McIntyre says he might be interested in a match against Tyson Fury at a stadium event in the UK. McIntyre told TalkSPORT last year:
I’m still angling for that significant UK pay-per-view and I won’t shut up until it happens.
Tyson Fury and I have gone back and forth for a long time. If we needed something just a little outside of the box to get people’s attention, especially in the U.K. with someone of Fury’s stature fighting Drew McIntyre in the battle of Britain, that would really draw some eyes and that’s where I’d like to see it.
Insurrextion 2003 was the last time WWE held a pay-per-view event in the United Kingdom. The event was held at the 10,000-seater Telewest Arena in Newcastle, England.
The British Bulldog fought Bret Hart, who had 80,355 fans in attendance and watched them at Wembley Stadium.
