WWE Could Be Bringing Another Huge Show To Australia

Rhea Ripley celebrates at WWE Elimination Chamber

WWE Elimination was a huge success.

On February 24th, WWE held Elimination Chamber in Optus, Stadium in Perth Australia — the biggest wrestling event in the country since 2018. In the main event, Australia’s own Rhea Ripley retained her Women’s World Title with a win over Nia Jax, while Becky Lynch and Drew McIntyre emerged victorious from the Elimination Chamber itself.

With more than 50,000 enthusiastic fans in attendance, the event was deemed a huge success, and it seems that Australia might not have to wait too much longer to see their WWE favourites again.

According to 9News Perth, WWE has an “open invitation” to return while negotiations are said to be ongoing with UFC which like WWE is also run by the TKO Group.

“Perth has made a splash on the world stage, with the state government dubbing last night’s wrestling spectacle a roaring success. WWE has been issued an open invitation to return, with attention now on securing another UFC fight in Perth.”

Tourism Minister and Deputy Premier of Western Australia Rita Saffioti told 9News Perth:

“When you look at all the indicators, it has been a roaring success. 52,000 people at the stadium last night, well above our projections.”

Drew McIntyre And Finn Balor Escape Serious Injury At WWE Elimination Chamber

Coming out of the event there were injury worries hanging around Finn Balor, who after his match held his hand up to the camera showing off some nasty-looking damage to his hand and thumb. However, he’s said to be alright.

Drew McIntyre also revealed he might have a burst eardrum after being hit in the head. Meanwhile, Raquel Rodriguez almost missed the show altogether due to issues stemming from her recent Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) diagnosis.
