WWE has grabbed massive fans’ attention in the last few weeks, as Dwayne Johnson made a surprise return on weekly television. In the midst of all the buzz following his return, the company has taken an important decision by announcing the venue for next year’s Elimination Chamber event.
It has been revealed that the Triple H-led promotion will be organizing the show in Australia, and it has left the fans elated. As per the announcement, the PPV will be held on February 24, 2024, at Optus Stadium. With the venue for the event now out, a new discussion has started among the audience.
People have been wondering if WWE’s upcoming show in Australia can beat their rival promotion, AEW‘s 81,000+ attendance record at their historic All In London PPV. So, let’s check out whether it can eventually happen or not.

Event will emanate from the Optus Stadium which can hold 70k people for concerts.
As officially announced by Tony Khan, the Jacksonville-based promotion’s All In London event recorded a historic attendance number of 81,035 fans. However, the venue for next year’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view has a sitting capacity of only 61,000 people.
With the Optus Stadium having the capability of holding fewer people than the number of fans who turned up for All In, it’s not possible for the show to beat AEW’s attendance record. However, it’s evident that Australian fans will surely turn up in large numbers for next year’s event in their homecountry.
WWE’s Australian performers to get a push before Elimination Chamber 2024
As the Stamford-based promotion usually starts promoting superstars from a country before touring it, WWE’s Australian performers look set for a huge push. With the company set to organize the Elimination Chamber event in Perth, on February 24, 2024, it seems like the best chance to establish new stars.
Among the current roster, Rhea Ripley and Grayson Waller are arguably the biggest names from Australia, as they’re already enjoying a massive push in WWE. However, with the Triple H-led promotion being months away from the event in the Great Southern Country, performers like Bronson Reed and Indi Hartwell would also probably start to go up the ranks.

In what seems like the beginning of this push, Bronson defeated Chad Gable in a match on RAW’s September 18 episode. With WWE’s announcement of Elimination Chamber to be held in Perth, it seems like such wins would continue for stars from the Wide Brown Land.
It remains to be seen what kind of match card and storylines the Stamford-based promotion will create for the February 2024 event. However, one thing that’s sure is that WWE will surely get a great response from their fans in Australia.
