WWE’s first big event in Wales was a success both critically and commercially.
Clash At the Castle took place on September 3rd, 2022. It was one the first PLE to emanate from the United Kingdom since SummerSlam 1992. It has been considered a success thanks to a loud crowd, a solid main event in Reigns vs. McIntyre, and a show-stealing performance in GUNTHER vs. Sheamus.
But Clash at the Castle wasn’t just well-liked by the fans; it also drew a lot of money. According to Brandon Thurston on Twitter, the show drew an impressive $8 million live gate.
According to WWE’s corporate website, CATC was “the most viewed international event in company history.” The same could be said of WWE’s three domestic events during the same quarter, Money In The Bank, SummerSlam, and Extreme Rules.
The report further noted that Clash at the Castle’s live gate represented a third of all of WWE’s ticket sale revenue for the entire quarter. It’s also almost four times the revenue the company generated during the same quarter in 2021.
This announcement is part of the company’s larger Q3 revenue report. Despite some turmoil surrounding, among other things, Vince McMahon’s departure, WWE is still making tons of money. The company’s revenue during Q3 alone was $304.6 million, which is an increase of 19%.
