WWE Reportedly In Talks To 'Bring WrestleMania Or SummerSlam To UK'
WWE is reportedly 'in talks' over a sensational deal to bring either WrestleMania or another major pay-per-view to the UK.
The wrestling promotion entered into a multi-year exclusive agreement with BT Sport last June after ending its partnership with Sky Sports in the UK.
And it is now rumoured that WWE could hold one of the 'Big Four' pay-per-views outside of the US again.
The last major WWE pay-per-view to be held in the UK was SummerSlam at Wembley in 1992.
And The Sun reports that the 30th anniversary is coming up in 2022 and it is considered a 'landmark year.'
The publication added that the UK has several different venues that could host one of the WWE mega-shows.
According to The Sun, Wembley could be in consideration alongside Tottenham's new stadium, Arsenal's Emirates, the London Stadium and even Twickenham.
The newspaper claimed that Manchester United's iconic Old Trafford 'would also have a large enough capacity,' adding that WWE has a 'strong presence in the North [of England].'
