WWE touts success of Clash at the Castle event

The event was WWE's first major PPV in the United Kingdom in more than 30 years.

WWE is touting the success that its Clash at the Castle event achieved across multiple areas of business.

On Monday, WWE Chief Content Officer Paul "Triple H" Levesque tweeted a graphic stating that Clash at the Castle achieved the following:

  • The most-watched international PLE (Premium Live Event) in WWE history
  • The highest-grossing European gate ever for WWE
  • WWE's best-selling non-WrestleMania event in terms of merchandise
  • The highest-rated international PLE in WWE history in terms of fan reaction (the source that WWE used for this wasn't identified)
  • #WWECastle trended number one on Twitter
  • The Clash at the Castle post-show press conference had the highest concurrent views on WWE's YouTube channel for anything other than a PPV pre-show

Levesque wrote: "#WWECastle was a massive success for @WWE across all lines of business and the #WWEUniverse in the UK… the next question is where should we go next?!"

Clash at the Castle took place at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. It was WWE's first major PPV to be held in the United Kingdom since London's Wembley Stadium hosted SummerSlam 1992.

Clash at the Castle was headlined by Roman Reigns defeating Drew McIntyre to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The PPV also included an instant classic match with Gunther retaining the Intercontinental title against Sheamus.
