As noted before, WWE is currently working on plans to potentially hold next year’s SummerSlam event in the United Kingdom with Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales as the potential location.
Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that his sources within WWE stated that the company is also currently considering other potential locations for next year’s SummerSlam event. Meltzer reported that WWE officials are also considering holding a different event in the U.K. during the month of September should SummerSlam not be chosen.
Among the other locations being considered reportedly includes Wembley Stadium in London and Old Trafford in Manchester, England. In regards to capacity for events, Wembley Stadium has a capacity of 90,000 and Old Trafford has a capacity of 74,000.
Meltzer reported that WWE officials are also currently considering plans to hold more events in stadiums going forward due to the success they had with this past August’s SummerSlam 2021 event at the Allegiant Stadium in the Las Vegas, Nevada.
