WWE Reportedly Eyeing September 9th For Live Event In India

Triple H WWE India

We now have a rumoured date for WWE’s planned live event in India later this year.

On May 18th at the Moffet Nathanson conference, WWE CEO Nick Khan revealed that the company is set to hold a live event in India in September later this year, however a specific date had yet to be revealed.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has now revealed that WWE are eyeing September 9th for the event that would be the South Asian nation’s first major live event in years.

“The date 9/9 is being discussed for the first major show in years in India.”


WWE’s last attempt to further tap into the Indian Mmarket came on January 22nd, 2021, as the company held a behind closed doors event titled ‘WWE Superstar Spectacle’ showcasing several of WWE’s Indian talents for a show that would later air on Indian Republic Day just four days later.

International premium live events have become increasingly common over the past several months, with WWE holding events across the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and most recently Puerto Rico, and thus it appears unlikely that this will be slowing down anytime soon.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on WWE holding a live event in India later this year as soon as we hear more.
