WWE is heading to Australia in October
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has confirmed the Super Show-Down will be held at the MCG in October this year.
WWE is an American integrated media and entertainment company that is primarily known for professional wrestling, with first quarter revenues reaching $187.7 million in 2018.
The Super Show-Down will be held Saturday, October 6, the week after the AFL Grand Final and is bringing the biggest roster of wrestlers Australia has ever seen.
In an Australian first, the show will be broadcast live on the WWE Network and headline the likes of John Cena and former MMA star Ronda Rousey.
The MCG could see a crowd over 100,000 strong for the event and with the ring at centre stage and seats taking up most of the stadiums surface it could become the largest crowd to ever attend a WWE show.
WWE boss Vince McMahon confirmed that Shawn Michaels, The Big Show, Kurt Angle would be in attendance, as well as Australian women’s tag team Peyton Royce and Billie Kay.
“This once-in-a-lifetime spectacular will showcase the nation to a global audience,” tour promoter and TEG Dainty CEO Paul Dainty said in a statement.
The event will also be streamed as a pay-per-view event to 180 countries around the world.
