WWE is the biggest pro wrestling company in the world by a mile and the same can be said about the UFC when it comes to MMA as well. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that WWE is planning to run a huge stadium show in Australia.
The company has gone through a lot of changes over the past year or so, especially after Triple H took over as Creative Head of WWE. Clearly, the company has seen a lot of improvement since then.
WWE broke records last year with the Clash At The Castle Premium Live Event, which was the first event in the UK in several years. Due to its huge success, WWE is now looking to expand their horizons.
According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was the government of Western Australia is in talks with WWE to organize a significant stadium event in a similar fashion to the two stadium shows WWE held in Melbourne, one of which was a PPV.
It is expected that the event would take place in Perth, which recently hosted a UFC show. It is common for local governments to bring in UFC events for tourism or other purposes, as many of the UFC shows held outside the U.S. are essentially sponsored by local authorities.
The state government of Western Australia, is negotiating with WWE to run a major stadium show. This would be similar to when the city of Melbourne made a deal with WWE twice to run stadium shows, one of which was a PPV show. The likely city would be Perth, which recently hosted a UFC show and many of the UFC shows outside the U.S. are basically local governments bringing in UFC for tourism or other reasons
We will have to wait and see which stadium the company will end up hosting an event in the Land Down Under. In the meantime, WWE has more plans for global expansion, so fans are excited for what’s next. Keep checking back at Ringside News for more.
