SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE has reportedly obliterated the record for pre-sale ticket registration on their recently announced show in the United Kingdom.
Alex McCarthy at talkSport is reporting that more than 59,000 fans have registered for the pre-sale, a WWE record for any show including WrestleMania. Earlier this week, the company announced that they would be returning to the UK for a show in Wales at Principality Stadium on September 3 of this year. The show marks WWE’s first UK stadium show in 30 years. Capacity inside Principality Stadium is 75,000.
Summerslam 1992 was the last major WWE stadium show in the United Kingdom. The show was headlined by Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog for the Intercontinental Championship. Other matches on the show included The Undertaker vs. Kamala, Papa Shango vs. Tito Santana, Rick Martel vs. Shawn Michaels, Tatanka vs. The Berzerker, Ultimate Warrior vs. “Macho Man” Randy Savage, and more.
Matches for the Wales show have not been announced at this time.
