    Yeah, not sure even at £70 to be honest Having to buy two tickets, a hotel for the night and having to drive to Wales I’m not sure it’s going to be worth it for a WWE show in 2022. If they drop the price closer to the time should they not sell as many tickets as anticipated then I’d be tempted maybe and will snipe a cheaper one.

    London would have been an ideal place for this to be, but the castle aesthetic is different I guess and since Wembley reopened, I’m not sure Wales have hosted many major sporting events other than their Six Nations games, so good for them I suppose.

    I get this. The only reason it appeals to me is I live a 60-90min train ride away so if I can get a cheap ticket I can do the main part of the day under £100

    I've wanted to go to a major wwe ppv my whole life. Even if it was in Grimsby at double the price and the product was awful, I think I'd have gone for it. 30 years is a long time to wait

    Any idea why this stadium show is taking place in Wales? Are there even any Welsh wrestlers currently on the main roster?

    I guess the easy answer is money. Wales has had hospitality locked down a lot longer than England, resulting in Cardiff losing loads of money due to big Wales rugby international weekends being cancelled.

    As far as logistics go, the stadium is bang centre of the city too, so it's easy to arrange transport, hotels, etc.

    Wembley is more expensive to host, and has more events through the year. The logistics of booking the venue would be difficult I imagine. Wembley is the most famous stadium in the world so while hosting an event there adds prestige, it also makes it difficult to book. I don't think wwe books Wembley for anything less than a big 4 show.

    The Cardiff stadium is the third biggest in the UK, and the biggest stadium in the UK that isn't used by a football team so won't coincide with the league season. This is what would rule out the Tottenham Hotspur stadium which would also have been considered.

    Plus they did run a Takeover in Cardiff so I imagine something may have convinced them there.

    The biggest reason is the stadium has a roof!

    Was about to make a post about not being able to get cheap enough seats and passing, thought I'd have one last check.....

    The £70 ones appeared, I'm in!

    Stadium has a roof and they could pack 90k in there if those chose to do so.

    Didn't bother with tickets but if some of you guys are going, offer to still stands to meet up before hand as i'm only half hour outside of Cardiff
    I have a plan so cunning......
