WWE previously announced that they will be heading to Australia to make their highly-anticipated return on Saturday, February 24, 2024 for the company’s Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event, which will take place from inside the Optus Stadium in Perth, Western Australia. It was also announced that this will be WWE’s first Premium Live Event in Australia since 2018 and the only PLE in the Asia-Pacific region in 2024.
Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the 2024 WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event is set to have a very early start time of 6AM ET/ 3AM PT and WWE confirmed that the show will be airing in prime time Australia local time.
The Optus Stadium in Perth, Western Australia can hold up to 70,000 fans for live concerts, while WWE could fit in around 55,000 fans with a stage. WWE is being brought in for Elimination Chamber and the company will be paid a huge amount money to do so with the idea of getting 50,000 fans in attendance. The last time WWE held a show in Australia was the Super Show-Down Event inside the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia, which was headlined by WWE Chief Content Officer and Head Of Creative Triple H taking on WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker.
