WWE have become more and more comfortable with running major shows outside the United States in recent times. Their infamous partnership with Saudi Arabia has led to multiple noteworthy events happening in the country including hosting the Elimination Chamber there in 2022. We’ve also seen WWE PLE’s return to the UK for the first time in 30 years when Cardiff hosted ‘Clash At The Castle’ last September.

Due to the success of WWE’s trip to Wales six months ago, a return to the UK to host Money In The Bank in London has already sold out and it appears that the company are already planning their next overseas venture. We already know that Backlash will emanate from Puerto Rico and, as written by Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE are in talks to host a major show in Western Australia.

“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”


Many fans will remember WWE hosting ‘Super Showdown’ from Melbourne in 2018, with the company handing out wins to Australian stars such as Buddy Murphy and The IIconics on the show.

As always, we’ll aim to provide updates on plans for WWE’s next overseas shows as soon as we hear more.
