WWE has always been a trendsetter for innovating new things. Thus, they always manage to stay a few steps ahead of the rival promotions.
In turn, new records get created, almost every time with new events and matches getting launched. Going forward, they might be intending to set a new record in terms of attendance.
The previous record noted in the event of WWE programming was in 2016. Wrestlemania was hosted in Dallas, Texas, that year and promoted as the biggest of all-time. The venue, AT&T Stadium was bigger, too which capacitated 101763 fans inside it which is, till date the highest attendance in a WWE show.
While trying to break this, the biggest pro-wrestling promotion of the world intends to host an event at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia. As per the recent reports from The Sportster, an event is said to take place at this venue, later this year breaking the earlier record.
If the reports are to be believed, then the officials are in negotiations with the venue to arrange at the iconic sports ground which can contain 100000 plus crowd. Check out the updates from SportsKeeda.com,
“Reports suggest that the WWE and MCG are currently in negotiations to reach a deal so as to put forth a WWE event at The MCG this year, and although an NXT Takeover event was pitched by the WWE, the belief is that the event may not be enough to sell out the 100,000-seat venue.”
It is likely that NXT will not be able to sell out the crowd. Also, no PPV amongst the big-four will be hosted, there since the venues for these have already been finalised. Royal Rumble is over in Philadelphia, whereas, Wrestlemania 34 takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana, SummerSlam in Brooklyn, New York and Survivor Series in Los Angeles, California.
So, it is almost certain that a new PPV event will be introduced in this year’s fall to take place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. WWE intends to use the emerging Australian talents to sell out the show. Buddy Murphy, The Iconic Duo (Billie Kay & Peyton Royce) and TM-61 (Shane Thorne & Nick Miller) from NXT are amongst these names.
However, these names are not the exact top names present in the company, as they are not the prime names from the main roster. So, it will be interesting which event gets finalised. Plus, the slot needs to be selected, as well for the PPV since the entire calendar has been published.
