Triple H put on another huge show at WWE Stadium after the success of Clash At The Castle.

The company boss – whose real name is Paul Levesque – hailed the event as a “huge success” and hinted that the wrestling giant is now looking to make a big return in 2023 following their first major UK stadium event in 30. years.

He tweeted: “#WWECastle has been a huge success for @WWE across all lines of business & the #WWEUniverse in the UK… the next question is where do we go from here?!”

Alongside the tweet was a graphic detailing some of the records broken by the show at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, where people from 42 countries traveled to be part of the historic weekend.

In terms of viewership, WWE said Clash At The Castle is now the best international live first event in the company’s long history, while a crowd of over 62,000 fans makes it the “biggest European gate ever.”

In addition to #WWECastle trending number one on Twitter – which is not unusual for WWE events – WWE described it as the “highest rated international PLE in WWE history” in terms of fan reaction.

It turns out that merchandise sales have also been remarkable, potentially helped by the pop-up supermarket set up downtown, as it has become WWE’s “best-selling event outside of WrestleMania.”

The company even pointed to the post-show press conference as having “the most concurrent YouTube views of any non-show.”

At the press conference, Metro.co.uk was caught in the crossfire when Seth Rollins – shortly after his big win over Matt Riddle – began passionately defending his love of wrestling.

During the Q&A, we asked Intercontinental Champion Gunther — a man known for his no-nonsense approach to wrestling — what he thought of the larger-than-life superstar sitting to his right.

However, the tone of the tongue-in-cheek question seemed to get under the skin of Rollins, who was quick to chime in with an impassioned response, outlining the sacrifices he continues to make after an illustrious 17-year career and counting.

He said, “I don’t want to be controversial here, but are you trying to imply that I don’t take the industry seriously?” Because it’s kind of my life—I’ve dedicated my whole life to it.

“I have a lot of fun with it, but at the end of the day it’s my passion. I dedicate literally every single waking second of eating, sleeping and not raising my child to this industry. So just because I’m good looking doesn’t mean you should be jealous mate!’

WWE Raw (Monday) and SmackDown (Friday) air weekly at 1am on BT Sport 1.
