Following Monday Night Raw, a report has broken that says WWE could be considering holding a big “international live event” very early in 2023.
2022 will be remembered for a lot of reasons in the wrestling world. The return of Stone Cold Steve Austin to the ring, the return to WWE of Cody Rhodes, the rise and rise of Logan Paul, the All Out fight between CM Punk and The Young Bucks, and of course, the retirement of Vince McMahon.
But for fans in the UK, the year will be fondly remembered as the year WWE returned across the pond to produce a stadium show, with Clash at the Castle filling the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales in early September.
In recent years WWE has produced several massive international shows in Saudi Arabia as part of a ten-year agreement with the Middle Eastern Kingdom. The latest of those saw Roman Reigns retain his WWE Universal Championship against Logan Paul at Crown Jewel.
But now it seems another big international event could be on the cards according to a new report. WrestleVotes has noted that there was talk of such an event backstage at Raw in Louisville:
“I’m told there was chatter last night backstage at RAW of an “international live event” taking place on Wed January 18th or Thurs Jan 19th. With location still TBD. No word on if this event is for TV or not.”
This could lead to an even more jam-packed January for the company with the Royal Rumble taking place on Saturday, the 28th of January and the 30th anniversary edition of Monday Night Raw taking place five days before on the 23rd.
