Update On WWE Potentially Holding Wrestlemania In London

WWE’s Money in the Bank event on July 1 marked their first internationally broadcast PLE in London since SummerSlam 1992.

During the event, John Cena made a surprise appearance, fueling speculation about the possibility of WrestleMania coming to the UK. While UK fans have long desired a WrestleMania on British soil, a recent report from Fightful Select suggests that WWE doesn’t believe it will happen in the near future.

Negotiations for a host city in the USA for WrestleMania XLI in 2025 are already underway, potentially pushing the earliest UK WrestleMania to 2026. A pre-Money in the Bank survey asked UK fans to vote on suitable cities for hypothetical Royal Rumble or SummerSlam events, but WrestleMania was not mentioned. When asked about the prospect of WrestleMania in London, Triple H evasively replied, “never say never” during the post-event press conference.

In the past, WWE had been hesitant to host major shows in Europe due to the time difference and potential impact on pay-per-view buys. However, with the rise of streaming technology and changing viewing habits, WWE has been more open to running major events in the UK and Saudi Arabia in recent years.
