WWE UK Championship Taping Using Lawn Chairs; Triple H Gives Great Response


The venue for the WWE UK Championship taping is having fans sit in lawn chairs, which got plenty of attention on Twitter.

On Saturday and Sunday, the first-ever WWE UK Championship tapings will take place in Norwich, England. It’s will be for the weekly UK show on the WWE Network, which doesn’t have an official launch date yet. No word on if that will change during this weekend’s recordings.

This weekly show will follow up on the WWE UK Championship Tournament that took place in January. This saw 16 wrestlers compete to become the first WWE UK Champion, which became Tyler Bate. He defeated Pete Dunne in the finals.

Before Bate, Dunne and others head to the ring, Triple H hyped up the show on Twitter. He posted photos with William Regal and a look at the squared circle.

Something fans caught wind of was the lawn chairs, which are set up outside the barricade for fans to sit on. Given this is WWE we’re talking about, them using lawn chairs for a show seems surprising, but as Triple H told Robbie Fox of Barstool Sports, does it really matter?

Fan reactions continued to pour in afterward. One of them even compared them to something from the Wyatt Family Compound:

At this point, who wouldn’t be surprised if we get a “lawn chair” chant or two at the taping? Especially with these photos quickly making their way around Wrestling Twitter.

Aside from pieces of plastic that you can find at your relative’s barbecue, this weekend will potentially provide answers on WWE Network details for the UK Championship show. When will it debut? What day will it be on? What about a time?
