WWE’s ambition to expand its global footprint is evident. The recent announcement of the “Bash In Berlin” premium live event in Germany for next year is a testament to this.

However, the wrestling giant’s European aspirations don’t end there.

WWE: European Expansion

The wrestling world buzzed with excitement when WWE revealed its plans for the Bash In Berlin event. But insiders suggest that this is just the tip of the iceberg.

According to a recent report from Fightful Select, WWE has set its sights on Paris, France. The iconic “City of Light” is rumoured to host the Backlash event in 2024. While the exact location remains under wraps, speculations point towards the Paris La Défense Arena.

Located in the Nanterre suburb, this venue boasts a seating capacity of around 40,000, making it Europe’s largest indoor arena.

Beyond the American Shores

Historically, WWE PPV and Premium Live Events have been pretty synonymous with the United States. However, recent trends indicate a shift.

The company has been steadily increasing its premium live events outside the US. Events like Clash At The Castle, Elimination Chamber, Backlash, Money In The Bank, and the Crown Jewel cards in Saudi Arabia have not only been profitable ventures but have also brought WWE action closer to its international fans.

The news that the Elimination Chamber event is set for Australia next year further cements WWE’s global strategy.

The Changing Landscape of WWE Events

The days when WWE’s marquee events were exclusive to the US seem to be fading. The company’s strategic move to host premium events in international locations is a win-win.

It not only taps into new revenue streams but also caters to a global fanbase, eager for live-action.

With Europe becoming a focal point, fans can expect more such announcements in the near future.
