WWE considering London for WrestleMania

The Independent in the UK is featuring an article about WWE issuing a survey to Orlando attendees back in April about potential sites for future editions of WrestleMania.

The survey listed London, Toronto and New York as possible locations. The article notes UK wrestling fans have been wanting a big WWE event since SummerSlam 1992 featuring Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog at the old Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 fans.

“Despite persistent and vocal support from British shores, WWE has always remained coy about brining the event to what is its second biggest global market, with logistical issues the main snagging point.”

Luke Harper in movie

Entertainment Weekly is featuring an article about WWE star Luke Harper (Jonathan Huber) starring in the new film “Mohawk.” The film will premiere in Montreal at the upcoming Fantasia International Film Festival according to the article.

The official description for the film is as follows:

“Set in 1814, Geoghegan’s film concerns two Mohawk warriors and their British lover who are pursued by murderous American military renegades hellbent on revenge.”

  1. 2 nd biggest market? Do they consider Canada part of the domestic market or is the UK actually bigger?

  2. Why not have another SummerSlam there first and see how that goes?
    And SummerSlam ’92 was not the last major PPV they had in London. They had 4 Insurrexions there from 2000-2003. They may not have been a Big 4 PPV but it was exclusive to UK fans.

  3. That’ll be the day. WWE hasnt even held a PPV here in the UK in what… 14 years let alone its biggest PPV of the year

  4. No he didn’t, he was citing “British” wrestlers, though I put that in quotes because three of them aren’t British nor are they billed as such.

  5. Not only were they not a big 4 but for the most part they were basically PPV house shows that had almost no connection to or impact on any ongoing storylines. Many people deemed it an insult to ask us to pay for them.

  6. Dont get me wrong I like NXT but i was reffering to the main roster talent. NXT Takeover takes place all over
