WWE and the future of UK PPVs

SS92SummerSlam 1992 was hosted by none other than Wembley Stadium in London. In front of 80,000 onlookers, WWE had produced a brilliant show with a huge card and a very strong roster on show.

Since then UK fans haven’t been lucky enough to get a PPV on the land. However we have had many RAW and Smackdown’s on show as well as many Live shows throughout the years. As well as the weekly and house shows, WWE produced the WWE UK tournament which was presented in Blackpool, England. The show had’t let anyone down with the top talents from the British and Irish aisles. Since the UK tournament and the defence of the title where Pete Dunne beat Tyler Bate, more questions have been brewing regarding the UK hosting another PPV.

Triple H has before stated the following:

I think that is a goal of WWE to be here in that way. It’s a very difficult process with PPV schedules and coming to the UK or globally to perform live with a live TV component, following that up with RAW and SmackDown. It’s a massive undertaking, trying to co-ordinate all that. There were 5 shows going on tonight under WWE. We have somewhere between 18 to 21 trailer trucks that come to our events, it’s tough to get them over the ocean. Is it a goal? Yes and I think tonight was one step closer to that goal becoming a reality.

Stephanie Mcmahon was asked about the possibility of bringing a PPV back to England:

The UK fans are pretty loud, pretty rowdy in a great way, and you know we are constantly evaluating that. Personally I would love to see it. I know it would be incredible.

 

So, there is hope, but the question will always remain until the UK get another show.
