Australia Government Talking To WWE About Hosting “Major Stadium Show”
There could be a major WWE event heading down under since the Australian government has shown an interest in hosting a huge show.
In 2018, WWE held a major show in Melbourne, Australia called Super Show-Down which was headlined by Triple H beating The Undertaker in the main event.
After the match, The Undertaker and Kane attacked Triple H and best friend Shawn Michaels, which would lead to the four WWE Hall of Famers facing off in a tag team match at Crown Jewel 2018, which is not considered a good match by many people.
The Super Show-Down 2018 event also featured some Australian wrestlers picking up big wins like The IIconics (Billie Kay & Peyton Royce) winning in their home country against Asuka & Naomi. Buddy Murphy, who is also Australian, beat Cedric Alexander to win the Cruiserweight Championship as well.
“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.”
That UFC 284 event in Perth, Australia took place at the RAC Arena with 14,124 fans in attendance.
Since the report said it would likely be a major stadium show in Perth, that would mean that Optus Stadium is a likely candidate to host the event since it officially opened in January 2018 and would be able to hold 50,000+ fans for a WWE event.
