With WWE Clash At The Castle set to make history in the United Kingdom, the attendance for the event is on course to break even more records.
Fans in the United Kingdom have been calling for a major event on their shores for many years. Despite plenty of house show tours and a number of pay-per-view events, there hasn’t been a significant show in a stadium since SummerSlam 1992.
It now seems like the calls for something similar to take place have been justified, with the event on 3rd September 2022 at the Principality Stadium in Wales set to hit record numbers for its attendance.
According to Dave Meltzer at The Wrestling Observer, the sales may not be as high as expected but the number of fans inside the stadium will eclipse a number of other landmark events.
At press time there were 66,465 tickets out with 49,000 paid. They blocked off 4,000 seats this past week and people in those sections were moved to unfilled sections. They can put 67,580 in and can expand to more than 71,000 if needed.
There are more tickets out than for any WWE show in six years, although the paid attendance will be less than either night of this year’s WrestleMania. But it will be, by far, the largest gate in pro wrestling history that is not a WrestleMania, even beating the major Tokyo Dome shows in the 90s. Given the ticket prices at the beginning, when most tickets are sold.
WWE Clash At The Castle is set to be headlined by Drew McIntyre challenging for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns, whilst there are also reports that Tyson Fury and Paul Heyman are set to appear at the event.
