• WWF Legend Says SummerSlam 1992 In UK Wasn’t A Success
Wrestling fans from the UK have made it clear multiple times that they want WWE to do a major PPV (like WrestleMania) over there again.
However, that might not happen anytime soon.
During a recent interview with The Mirror, Old School WWF Legend Triple H noted that SummerSlam 1992 in the UK wasn’t a success (despite drawing 80,000+ fans):
“I always hear about Wembley, I always hear it was such a massive success. It was not. From a business standpoint, it was not.
That’s why we didn’t come back and that’s why we’re still trying to figure it out.”
