WWE Clash At The Castle Notes: Attendance, PPV Buys, And Google Interest


The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has details on the business metrics for WWE’s Clash at the Castle event, including the attendance and PPV buys.

The number announced for attendance was said to be legitimate. It was announced on the show that there were 62,296 fans at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, which included 49,000 paid attendees. It was thought that they would break WrestleMania’s record at one point, but this fell a bit short of the Showcase of the Immortals. The belief backstage is that if ticket prices had been lower, they would have sold out the stadium with 71,500 seats.

As we reported earlier here on eWn, the traditional pay-per-view buys in the United States were said to be around 8,000. Because WWE events stream on Peacock, pay-per-view buys are down across the board for the United States. WWE Clash at the Castle was down from SummerSlam (18,600 buys) and Money in the Bank (9,200 buys). Keep in mind that the show was aired on a Saturday afternoon thanks to the time difference, and not in primetime like WWE events typically are. Of those who bought the show, 10.48% of that audience also purchased AEW’s All Out pay-per-view event the following night, while 89.52% did not.

WWE Clash at the Castle was not in the top 20 Google trends on Saturday, though it was listed at one point. Saturdays are busy college football days in the United States, and the UFC show ranked at #8, beating out both Clash at the Castle and All Out on the next night.
