WWE has been hosting a lot of international events in recent times to expand the company worldwide. WWE already have agreements to host pay-per-views in Saudi Arabia until 2027 and they host events twice a year. However in 2023, WWE hosted a lot of international events such as Elimination Chamber in Montreal, Canada; Backlash in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Night of Champions in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Money in the Bank in London, England; SuperStar Spectacle in Hyderabad, India; and Crown Jewel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
WWE has also booked some of the global events for 2024 such as Elimination Chamber in Perth, Western Australia; and Bash in Berlin in Germany. However, it is reported that WWE is looking for more international events in 2024.
WWE on hosting International Events in 2024
Nick Khan earlier this year reported that the company is in negotiations with a number of international cities to host shows there as a process of international expansion of the business.
WWE CEO, Nick Khan in May 2023 at JP Morgan’s Global Technology, Media & Communication Conference said,
“We’re in conversations now with a lot of international cities about doing 2024 shows there. Also, part of the intent is to match those up with our media rights, even if they’re not up to over-deliver for incumbent partners who can then invite their partners in the international city to the event, and host them. It’s good for our overall business.”
Now, Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that the international negotiations are in process and Paris, France being one of the potential cities to host an event in May, which probably could be Backlash 2024.
Wrestling Observer News Letter wrote,
“We were told regarding that show that WWE is in negotiations with a lot of different city governments around the world to get significant money for PPV events going forward with Paris being one of those cities. Backlash is traditionally the first show after WrestleMania and held in early May.”
