WWE: SummerSlam Returning to the UK Next Year?

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE executives have been shopping around the United Kingdom for a venue to host next year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view, which would be the first time since SummerSlam in 1992 that a WWE pay-per-view has been held outside of North America. With a double main event of “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. The Ultimate Warrior and the famous Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog match, SummerSlam 1992 was one of the most popular events in WWE history, scoring an attendance of over 80,000 fans in the original Wembley Stadium in London. Stadiums such as the Millennium Stadium (Cardiff, Wales), Old Trafford (Manchester), and a few others are being considered for next year’s event. The advantage that the Millennium Stadium and the new Wembley Stadium have is that both venues are equipped with retractable roofs, which would make the threat of rain a non-issue for one of the WWE’s biggest events.

Native Englishman Wade Barrett commented on SummerSlam returning to the UK next year, saying “After showing that they are the best fans on the planet this week in Brum, I think it’s about time SummerSlam made a return to Wembley.”
