WWE Hall Of Famer Thinks WrestleMania Will Come To London

John Cena caused a stir when he made a shock appearance at Money In The Bank in London, England to get the crowd whipped up into a frenzy over the possibility of WWE one day bringing WrestleMania to the city.

Cena had the crowd in The O2 Arena behind him as he made the case for London to host the showcase of the immortals, something that has been discussed by UK wrestling fans for years.

The timing of WWE’s tease did raise eyebrows with some given AEW is on course to have the biggest wrestling show of all time in the UK when All In takes place in London on August 27th.

Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff tipped WrestleMania to end up in London before the end of the decade but he does think the company should look to bring another tentpole event across the pond before then:

“If I was going to bet, I would bet we’re gonna see one very soon within five years. It would be at least two years, but yeah, I could see it.

“You know, we’re talking about WrestleMania, and I guess if John Cena mentioned that the UK deserves or should get a WrestleMania that’s one thing. I don’t get why they wouldn’t go over there with a different pay-per-view ’cause I think any one of the tentpole pay-per-views that WWE does, for example, the Rumble, could easily play in the UK, and it could be done sooner. I think announcing WrestleMania two years from now is, eh.”

WWE did bring a huge stadium show to the UK in 2022 as Clash at the Castle took place in Cardiff, Wales but that was a new show rather than a company standard. The last and only time one of those took place in the UK was when SummerSlam took place in Wembley Stadium in 1992. Should WrestleMania come to England for the first time, Wembley is a likely destination for the two-night affair.
