The UK Sun Does Article on England Possibly Hosting a Big WWE PPV
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.09.2012



- The UK Sun has posted an article, discussing Dave Meltzer's report about WWE officials holding secret talks with London officials about hosting a major PPV event in one of their stadiums. Here is a portion of the column…
Dave Meltzer reports that officials are due to meet with representatives of Cardiff's Millennium Stadium today and have already spoken to Old Trafford and ‘a stadium in London', believed to be Wembley.

The original Wembley Stadium hosted SummerSlam in 1992, arguably the most important wrestling event to ever occur on these shores.

Along with featuring the likes of Randy Savage and the Undertaker, the pay-per-view was headlined by one of the greatest matches in history – Bret The Hitman Hart v The British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith.

It's thought that if WWE can hammer out a deal with a British venue for 2013, SummerSlam would return for the 21st anniversary of that memorable show.

More than 80,000 fans attended SummerSlam 92, which is officially WWE's second-highest recorded attendance ever, behind WrestleMania III, for which the genuine number is often queried.

Despite the huge gate, WWE have never produced an international PPV outside of North America since then, largely due to a mix of a poor domestic buy rate, logistical costs and time-zone issues.

For a time, WWE produced UK-only PPVs such as Rebellion and Capital Carnage for Sky Box Office, but stopped in 2002 as sales dwindled.
