WWE announces a huge event

WrestleVotes' Twitter profile wrote in March: “A source says WWE's long-awaited return to the UK with a pay-per-view will take place on Saturday 3 September at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. That's the same weekend as the AEW 'All Out' pay-per-view."

While around autumn 2021, so a little earlier, WhatCulture had reported that in 2022 WWE could bring one of its premium live events to the UK. A source informed the site, telling them that this could happen next September.

And all of this has actually come true, as the Stamford-based company has officially announced via all its channels that after 30 years it will be back with a major UK stadium event right at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

WWE returns to the UK

"STAMFORD, Conn., April 12, 2022 - WWE today announced that the first major WWE stadium event to be held in the UK in more than 30 years will be broadcast from Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, September 3, 2022.

"The weekend will be filled with a variety of WWE experiences that we believe will leave a lasting impression, on par with Summerslam at Wembley Stadium in 1992. Wales will provide an iconic venue for WWE's return to the UK after 30 years and showcase our country to a global audience of millions, including extended reach in the US," said the Minister of Economy.

Welsh Vaughan Gething. "This is the perfect addition to a huge year of sport, entertainment and culture in Wales that will attract people from all over the world to experience what our country has to offer." An event that lives long in the memory of many British wrestling fans is SummerSlam 1992 when the UK hosted the event at Wembley Stadium.

The main event of the show saw Bret Hart face off against The British Bulldog for the Intercontinental Championship. With talk of a major event taking place in a stadium in the near future, many are speculating that Wembley might host the 30th Anniversary of Summer Slam.
