Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), which has a capacity for over 100,000 fans, is set to create history. This time it won't be cricket doing so.
In October, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) will see it's first Pay Per View event in Australia.
‘WWE Super Show-Down’, will witness an epic fight between The Undertaker and Triple H for the first time since WrestleMania 28. Shawn Michaels, John Cena, Ronda Rousey and The Big Show are some of the other big names who will be featuring in this show. WWE last toured Australia in 2002 where it hosted the ‘Global Warning’ event.
On Saturday, October 6th, @WWE brings the Super Show-Down to the @MCG in Melbourne, Australia ... the largest live event. EVER.— Triple H (@TripleH) June 16, 2018
And on that night...
It’s #TheGame vs. #TheDeadman
One final time.
One final match. #GetReady for THE show down. #WWESSD pic.twitter.com/Rek0kL2aZ3
WWE Super Show-Down is being produced in conjunction with Australian promoter Paul Dainty and his company TEG Dainty.
MCG has hosted 1956 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. It hosts Australian Football League (AFL) matches in the winter, and recorded 121,696 record attendance in 1970 VFL Grand Final.
