WWE Announces UK Tour

WWE will be returning to the UK in September. It has been announced by WWE that four shows will take place from September 19th to September 22nd. The four cities that will host WWE will be London, Glasgow, Newcastle and Cardiff. A press release by WWE states the following information about the upcoming events:

WWE is getting back on the road and heading across the pond this September.

WWE Live makes its epic return to the United Kingdom this Sept. 19-22. Fans attending WWE Live will see their favorite WWE Superstars from SmackDown including Roman Reigns, Bianca Belair, Big E, Sasha Banks, Bayley, The Usos and more.

The four-city tour will visit the following cities:

WWE
  • Newcastle – Utilita Arena (Sunday, September 19, 2021)
  • London – The O2 (Monday, September 20, 2021),
  • Cardiff – Motorpoint Arena (Tuesday, September 21, 2021)
  • Glasgow – The SSE Hydro (Wednesday, September 22, 2021)

This will be the first international tour for WWE since before the COVID 19 pandemic shut down touring in March 2020. The events will be non-televised house shows, as the superstars featured are from SmackDown, which airs on Friday nights.

Two points should be noted regarding this announcement. Firstly, the tour is due to take place in September. Current projections are for large events to take place in the UK by July 19th. However, this date has already been pushed back once, with the original date being June 22nd. A formal announcement on this date will be made on July 12th.

Secondly, while various superstars have been advertised for the event, expect this to change. This is because it is being rumoured that a WWE Draft will be taking place shortly before the UK is due to start. More information can be found on this here.
