I've said it many times. WrestleMania at Wembley Stadium would be huge. I also think they missed a great opportunity last year with Summerslam. It was the 20th Anniversary of Summerslam'92 and and London would've still been high off the buzz created by the Olympics. I know there's the time zone problem but surely a one off Sunday afternoon PPV could work. It'd be interesting to know if the US fans on here would be happy for a one off situation like this and if not, why?

Personally, I'd have no problem with it being in the afternoon for it to be in Wembley. I could see though it being a problem for some. Some people might be out and about durring the day and might not be able to get home to see it. Plus I think WWE kind of bank on the idea of everybody is home on a Sunday night and might not have a whole lot to watch.

 

But regardless, WM at Wembley needs to happen at some point. It's just calling for it.

Slim to none, I give it a less than 25% chance of happening, due the time zone issues, no way do they move from the prime time PPV slot(and lose millions, since WWE gets a higher percentage of revenue in the 8pm-12am EST time slot than any other time of day) nor would they ever tape a WrestleMania either.

I doubt WWE could sell-out the Tokyo Dome but Wembley NEEDS to happen even if it meant holding the show in the middle of the night not to effect American Schedules.

Wrestlemania seems very unlikely but I can see SummerSlam having a chance.

WM won't be going international any time soon, at least for another 4-5 years.
