WWE move their massive wrestling event from Cardiff to Glasgow

IN a surprising turn, the colossal wrestling spectacle that infused a hefty £21 million into the Welsh economy is bidding farewell to Cardiff and setting its sights on Scotland, as per the latest announcement.

WWE’s grand Clash at the Castle extravaganza graced the hallowed grounds of Principality Stadium in September 2022, marking its triumphant return to the UK after a three-decade hiatus.

A throng of 62,296 fervent fans descended upon the capital, swelling with anticipation to witness the event firsthand. Alongside the main spectacle, Cardiff played host to a flurry of unofficial festivities, amplifying the buzz throughout the city.

Delving into the economic aftermath, the Welsh Government unveiled a staggering £21.8 million boost to the local economy, underscoring the event’s profound impact. Notably, a substantial 75.3% of attendees hailed from regions beyond Welsh borders, with a significant 57% expressing a newfound desire to explore other corners of Wales, testament to the event’s allure.

With optimism abound, many had harboured hopes of a return engagement, capitalising on the resounding success witnessed in the Welsh capital. However, WWE dashed these expectations on Tuesday morning with their revelation.

Come June 15, 2024, the Clash at the Castle spectacle will unfold once more, but this time, the stage shifts to the illustrious OVO Hydro in Glasgow. Furthermore, the frenzy extends beyond the main event, with WWE scheduling one of its premier weekly TV shows, Friday Night Smackdown, the preceding night, ensuring a blockbuster wrestling extravaganza in the heart of Scotland.
