As previously announced, WWE will make its debut at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds in Australia this October for WWE Super Show-Down, their first ever live pay-per-view and WWE Network special in the region.
A major reason the event is taking place at all, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, is a campaign by the Australian state of Victoria to bring more tourism into the city of Melbourne. A full-blown WWE pay-per-view level event was pitched with Ronda Rousey promoted as the major star, as she’s considered a major sports figure in the area. Her 2015 fight against Holly Holm at Docklands Stadium, ironically her first loss that is probably the biggest reason she’s in WWE today, still holds the UFC’s all-time attendance record.

With regards to Daniel Bryan, who is currently being advertised for the show, the Observer is reporting that he has not signed a new deal with WWE yet. Given that his current deal expires well before October 6th, they’re basically just advertising him in advance assuming that he will sign a new deal, and if something falls through they always have the old “card is subject to change” excuse to fall aback on.
Additionally, the arena will reportedly be set up for around 70,000 fans instead of its max capacity of 100,000 and that it will take four days to convert the MCG for the event.
