For the first time since Summerslam 1992, WWE will host a major event in the United Kingdom at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales in September.
That card was stacked, headlined by a 25-minute classic between Bret Hart and the late British Bulldog for the Intercontinental Championship.
It also featured legends like the Legion of Doom, Shawn Michaels, The Ultimate Warrior, Randy Savage and the Undertaker.
WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events John Porco said the Welsh venue was ideal.
“Principality Stadium is the perfect place for a major event, hosting our amazing fans from Wales, throughout all of Europe, and around the world,” he said.

“The weekend will be filled with a variety of WWE experiences that we believe will leave a lasting memory, on par with SummerSlam at Wembley Stadium in 1992.”
“Wales will provide an iconic location for WWE’s return to the UK after 30 years and showcase our country to a global audience of millions, including extended reach in the USA,” Welsh Government Minister for Economy Vaughan Gething said.
“This is set to be the perfect addition to a huge year of sport, entertainment and culture in Wales that
will attract people from across the globe to experience what our country has to offer.”
“We’re extremely proud that Principality Stadium has been chosen by WWE to host this major event, which is testament to the stadium’s reputation as a world class venue,” Principality Stadium Manager Mark Williams said.
“Principality Stadium is unique in its position at the heart of the city centre, which will undoubtably offer WWE fans an unrivalled event experience both inside and outside of the stadium and bring great benefit
to the wider city of Cardiff.”
