WWE Announces Super Show at Massive Venue in Australia

WWE plans to make history by putting on Australia’s biggest-ever wrestling show later this year at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

We first reported on the possibility of the event back in December — at the time it was going to be called Global Warning II — but now it’s official, with a new name!

The October 6 event called WWE Super Show-Down appears to be produced in the style of Greatest Royal Rumble. WWE hopes to pack the 100,000 seat stadium by bringing all its top talent — and featuring what’s being labeled the “final showdown” between The Undertaker and Triple H.

John Cena, Kurt Angle, and Ronda Rousey are among the other names being billed. It’s worth noting WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar does not appear on the advertisement featuring two dozen wrestlers. No other matches have been announced.

According to The Herald Sun, Melbourne is looking at this event as a tourism opportunity. They’re hopeful the show can create an economic influx similar to Global Warning in 2002 — which generated more than $20 million for the local economy.

The Sun notes the event will feature a Wrestlemania atmosphere utilizing the same design and production team from WWE’s top event. The MCG is expected to be configured for about 70,000 seats, according to The Sun. Back in 2002, some 56,000 fans attended Global Warning at Etihad Stadium.

The event is being put on as a “partnership” with promotion company TEG Danity.

A WWE news release says the show will be available on WWE Network and be available internationally on pay-per-view. Tickets go on sale June 28.

Ronda Rousey Wins Raw Women’s Championship at Summer Slam 2018

Ronda Rousey beat Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship earlier tonight at WWE SummerSlam 2018. This makes Rousey the first female wrestler ever to have won a major UFC Championship and a WWE Championship.

Ronda Rousey dominated Alexa Bliss from start to finish, finally putting the champion out of her misery with a grotesque arm bar. Seriously it looked like she tore Alexa’s arm from her socket.

As Rousey celebrated, the commentators called her a pioneer for women’s athletes. She embraced Natalya, the Bella twins, and finally, her husband, Travis Browne. The Rousey era is upon us just in time for WWE’s Evolution PPV.

After one of the highest rated debut matches in professional wrestling, Ronda Rousey made it clear to the world that she was serious about making history in WWE after claiming victory tonight and becoming the new Raw Women’s Champion.
