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.

Quote There remains no confirmation or even information on the rumored WWE supershow in Melbourne, Australia that was slated for October 6. It was mentioned on TV and reported in the Australian media but WWE has yet to make any official announcement.

-- According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are "snags" but nobody has confirmed what those are other than it was some part of the deal that is holding things up. It isn't even known if these "snags" are something that will ultimately prevent the event from happening or if it's something that can be worked out.

I had noticed it's gone quiet on announcements. I hope we will still see it happen.
 
If they can get around the snags Saudi Arabia put in front of them (women, amount of people sent there, 36 hours to get there as JR said on his podcast), they can piss a show in Australia.
 
Be cool seeing how many on the west coast of America (such as Len lol) decide to watch it live at a similar time to UK have to watch USA pay per views monthly.

As much fun as it would be to personally attend the show it is nothing more then a hyped up house show one I don't particulary feel like going to Melbourne to see it the tickets are just too much for me to afford with everything else going on and I've already seen Triple H vs Undertaker live ( I was at Wrestlemania 28) and most of the roster already I don't need to see that match again especially when both guys are quite past their prime.

I read a report recently that stated WWE want to run at least one show per year on foreign soil similar to the Greatest Royal Rumble from Saudi Arabia and the Supershow in Australia, it said the annual show will be a PPV/Network special and will be a show on a par with Wrestlemania in terms of size and spectacle. London was mentioned as one of the possible locations.

If WWE run a Wrestlemania level event in London I would definitely get tickets.

I will probably watch a bit live over saturday morning breakfast and then catch up with the rest later as i'm usually out somewhere and if football season starts well I hope to travel to Peterborough that day.

As a big cricket fan who loves the Ashes, I can vouch as someone from outside of Australia about what a brilliant venue packed with so much history the MCG is. As I think I mentioned in the bucket list thread I would love to watch England play there one boxing day in the first day of the 3rd ashes test.

Even with the ticket prices I would be really shocked if the live gate doesn't crack 100,000. People will be travelling to Melbourne from Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart and many other places. Heck you can bet folks from New Zealand will travel over too.
