When was the last time WWE came to India?
It’s been a long time since WWE came to India. Previously Superstar Spectacle event took place in 2021, but it was not a live event. The event was taped and was later aired on television.
The last live event that took place in India was in December 2017. The event was named ‘WWE Live India Supershow’ and the Indian audience enjoyed the event from the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi.
At the previous live event, a blockbuster match took place. In the main event, the crowd watched eagerly as Triple H faced Jinder Mahal. After a top-notch bout, Hunter was the one who emerged victorious.
However, now once again, WWE is coming to its Indian audience. Several top-class superstars have been advertised for the event. It is now to be seen what happens at the live event, as fans in India will wait with high anticipation for the event to kick off.
