However, fans on these shores will not have to wait long to get a glimpse of WWE’s biggest stars again after some exciting news was announced this morning.

It has been confirmed that Glasgow will host Friday Night SmackDown on June 14.

But the Scottish city will also stage the Clash At the Castle: Scotland the very next evening.

That follows the record-setting Clash At the Castle that took place at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in September 2022.

This will be the first-ever WWE premium live event to be staged North of the Border and it will be held at the OVO Hydro.

WWE president Nick Khan said: “We are excited to bring both Friday Night SmackDown and Clash At The Castle: Scotland to our amazing fans in Scotland at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow this June.

“The world will see that this is one of the UK’s best venues and Scottish crowds are some of the loudest, craziest and most passionate on the planet.”

WWE enjoyed huge success last summer as well when they returned to the UK.
