One Raw star revealed that rumblings of a WWE return to Australia may be put on pause.
WWE had made itself into a global brand in sports entertainment, and in recent years, it’s become increasingly common for the company to hold major events outside of the North American market.
Not only does the sports entertainment giant have a deal in place to hold multiple events in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia each year, they’ve also embraced the UK market with both Clash at the Castle and the recent Money in the Bank PLE.
At Money in the Bank, John Cena made a surprise appearance to tease the possibility of holding WrestleMania in England, and he was interrupted by Grayson Waller, who believes his home country of Australia would be a better fit. WWE hasn’t held an event in Australia since 2019, and plans for a return were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In March, it was reported that the Australian government was holding talks with WWE for a major event.
Speaking to The Footy podcast, Australian star Bronson Reed was asked about the possibility of the company’s return to his home country, and Reed revealed that plans for an October tour will likely not come to fruition.
“I’m really hopeful that there will be soon. I don’t know yet. I heard that there were rumblings about doing a tour in October, but I think that’s been nixed. I’m hoping early next year, but I don’t know. They should do a big premium live event from Adelaide Oval.”
