WWE has reportedly scheduled a premium live event for September 4th, the same day as AEW All Out.
The promotion will host their first UK stadium show in over 30 years on Saturday 3rd September. Clash at the Castle will take place at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. The last time WWE held a major event in a UK stadium was SummerSlam 1992 at the original Wembley Stadium. Drew McIntyre and Sheamus are currently feuding to determine which Superstar will get a title shot at Clash at the Castle.
According to Brandon Thurston of WrestleNomics, the promotion is also planning another show for that weekend. Thurston reported that NXT will have its next premium live event the day after Clash at the Castle. It happens to be the same day as AEW’s All out event.
September’s premium live NXT event will air on the Peacock streaming service and take place at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. It is not known at this time if the two special events will air at the same time or if the NXT event will take place earlier.
WWE and AEW have faced off in the past
Last October, during the MLB playoffs, the two promotions were locked in a Friday night viewership war. SmackDown moved from the Fox Network to sister channel FS1 because of a baseball game. The show was a two and a half hour special edition of the blue brand, and the extra thirty minutes took place during AEW Rampage on TNT.
While SmackDown drew more viewers, ratings in the key 18-49 demographic were remarkably close. Brandon Thurston reported that SmackDown got a demo win by only a thousand viewers.
