A long-running question within the WWE Universe has been 'when is a pay-per-view going to be held in the United Kingdom?'

The WWE make a special effort travelling to the UK twice a year, once at the beginning of the year, and once at the end of the year, with their latest one coming in the next few weeks as Scotland prepare to host Monday Night Raw and SmackDown LIVE.

Despite WWE dominantly being in the United States, there is still a case for a major PPV to be held in the UK due to the growing fanbase, and it's certainly something that could happen in the future.

Whether American fans would be happy about it, it's certainly a possibility, especially given the sizes of the stadiums in the UK, with real options being Wembley Stadium, Twickenham Stadium, and the Millennium Stadium.

The UK have hosted a WWE PPV once before. SummerSlam in 1992 was held at Wembley Stadium with Bret Hart vs The British Bulldog being the main event.

However, since then, WWE have chosen not to return to the UK with an all-exclusive PPV, which is something that could change in the near future.

During an episode of Monday Night Raw last year, when WWE were in the UK, John Cena opened the show and even he said that a PPV should be held in London, England due to the incredible support.

When Cena says WWE should do something, maybe it's time they listened, and Cena isn't alone as in a recent interview Dolph Ziggler admitted that a PPV in the UK could be getting closer.

He told The Sun: “I think we are getting closer.

"The audience is so huge, great and loyal and we as performers think they have gone above and beyond to deserve it. I’m sure at some point it will be in the works, and it will be one of the greatest crowd responses we have ever had.”
