WWE will be running a major stadium show from Perth, Australia next year.

Via The West Australian, this event will take place from Perth's Optus Stadium in early 2024 ahead of the AFL seasons starting in late-March.


Having opened in 2018, Optus Stadium holds over 60,000 for football and cricket matches, and the venue's highest ever attendance was 73,000 for an Ed Sheeran concert earlier this year.

Top WWE names are expected to fly into Perth in the next few days to be a part of the formal announcement of this show.


WWE last visited Australia in October 2019 for non-televised live events from Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sidney. Prior to that, the sports entertainment juggernaut held its Super ShowDown PPV from the Melbourne Cricket Ground in October 2018 in front of a 70,000 crowd. That PPV was headlined by Triple H vs. Undertaker, and famously had Aussie grappler Buddy Murphy defeated Cedric Alexander to become the WWE Cruiserweight Champion.

In terms of Australian talent currently under WWE contract, Women's World Champion Rhea Ripley, Grayson Waller, Bronson Reed, Indi Hartwell, Emma, and Duke Hudson all call Australia home.
