Quote According to a report from The Sportster, WWE is looking to host an event at the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground). The venue can hold over 100,000 fans and is the 10th largest stadium in the world. The stadium hosted the 1956 Summer Olympics, the 2006 Commonwealth Games, several FIFA World Cup qualifiers and a Guns N’ Roses concert in 2017.
According to The Sportster report, WWE’s goal is to sell out as much of the arena as possible in order to create an event on the scale of WrestleMania 32 (101,763), WrestleMania III in Pontiac, Michigan at (93,173), WrestleMania 29 in East Rutherford, NJ, (80,676), SummerSlam 1992 in London, England (80,355), and WrestleMania 23 in Detroit, Michigan at (80,103).
That would be great. It's a wonderful venue (hence the Sporting Bucket List mention) and they would have no problem at all getting a six figure crowd.
It would be great to watch a live E event at sunday morning breakfast, instead of at a stupid time.
I have the original Global Warming on DVD and the current roster would sell tickets just as well.

Quote As noted, WWE is reportedly looking at holding what could be their most attended event in history in 2018. The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is looking to host more big events going forward, and WWE is looking to capitalize on that fact.
The venue has a capacity to seat over 100,000 fans and is the tenth largest stadium in the world. It has hosted such events in the past as the 1954 Summer Olympics, 2006 Commonwealth Games and multiple FIFA World Cup games, just to name a few.
According to The Herald Sun out of Victoria, Australia, WWE has partnered up with Visit Victoria to hold a show in October, one week after the AFL Grand Final on September 29th. The announcement regarding the event is expected to be made during WrestleMania 34 on April 8th.
The report also states that the show would be a pay-per-view event, with the company looking to bring in names such as The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio and John Cena. It is estimated that the event would bring over $100 million to the state's economy, along with 900 jobs.
WWE is aiming to sell out the venue. Regarding their past highly-attended events, 101,763 fans reportedly attended WrestleMania 32, although that number has been disputed by multiple sources. Prior to that, WrestleMania III had nearly 80,000 fans in attendance (although 93,173 was the announced figure), WrestleMania 29 had 80,676 announced fans in attendance, SummerSlam '92 had 80,355 fans and WrestleMania 23 had 80,103 fans announced.

While I wish it could've been done at ANZ stadium in Sydney I am truly excited at a possible PPV being held here in Australia it would be one of the greatest thing in the world to have that happen, I'm not expecting Wrestlemania but to have even a b grade PPV would be great and it would be good to have the WWE here to scout some of the independent guys we have here like Adam Brooks.
