WWE officially announced that they will be running a stadium show in the United Kingdom on Labor Day weekend.

In a press release, WWE confirmed that they will be holding a stadium event at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, September 3. They did not announce an event name or ticket information.

“Principality Stadium is the perfect place for a major event, hosting our amazing fans from Wales, throughout all of Europe, and around the world,” John Porco, WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events is quoted as saying in the press release. “The weekend will be filled with a variety of WWE experiences that we believe will leave a lasting memory, on par with SummerSlam at Wembley Stadium in 1992.”

"We're extremely proud that Principality Stadium has been chosen by WWE to host this major event, which is testament to the stadium's reputation as a world-class venue,” Mark Williams, Principality Stadium Manager said in the press release. “Principality Stadium is unique in its position at the heart of the city centre, which will undoubtedly offer WWE fans an unrivaled event experience both inside and outside of the stadium and bring great benefit to the wider city of Cardiff."

WWE’s last major stadium event in the United Kingdom was SummerSlam 1992 at Wembley Stadium in London, England. The British Bulldog defeated Bret Hart to win the WWE Intercontinental title in the main event.
