Corey Graves Says UK Made A Good Case For WrestleMania

WWE announcer Corey Graves thinks the fan response to Clash at the Castle makes a good case for the UK to play host to WrestleMania.

Over 62,000 fans packed into the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales as the WWE brought a stadium show to the UK shores for only the second time ever and thirty years after they hosted SummerSlam 1992 at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

The fans assembled in Wales saw Liv Morgan defeat Shayna Baszler to retain the SmackDown Women’s Championship as well as Gunther and Sheamus putting on a hard-hitting, critically acclaimed classic with the Austrian star escaping with his Intercontinental Championship while Sheamus left to a deafening – and well earned – standing ovation.

In the night’s main event, the UK faithful were hopeful that Scotsman Drew McIntyre would be the one to put an end to Roman Reigns’ incredible run as Unified WWE Universal Champion. However, thanks to interference from Solo Sikoa, that was not to be.

Now speaking on the After The Bell podcast, Raw announcer Corey Graves who called the action in Cardiff reckons the UK’s response to the show makes a good case for them to finally play host to WrestleMania:

“Here’s your headline for the week. In the opinion of Corey Graves and many other people who were backstage who were around the stadium in Cardiff. You guys have been clamouring for Wrestlemania. I’d say you made a pretty strong case for yourselves to get one in the near future.”

If such a thing was to ever happen, the UK would have to wait until at least 2025. 2023’s edition of WrestleMania will take place in Los Angeles, California, and WrestleMania 40 in 2024 will be held in Philadelphia, PA.
