WWE will reportedly return to Australia in early 2024.
According to a new report from The West Australian WWE will be heading to the Optus Stadium in Perth, Western Australia sometime in the first few months of 2024. The report adds that the show will be announced within days.
The event will slot into the calendar ahead of WrestleMania 40 and will be available to stream around the world.
Back in March, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter wrote that talks between WWE and officials in Australia were taking place.
“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.”
When Has WWE Been To Australia Before?
The sports entertainment giant first visited Australia back in 1985 and followed that up with another tour in 1986. However, from there it would be another 16 years before they made the trip again.
Since then, Australian tours have become commonplace, with the biggest show coming in 2018 when Super ShowDown was held at Melbourne Cricket Ground in front of more than 70,000 fans.
In recent news, it has been confirmed that WWE will bring Elimination Chamber to Australia in 2024.
