5 Stadiums Which Can Host A WWE Show In India

The global phenomenon of Professional Wrestling, WWE is famous for some of the best shows in not only their home field of the United States but on foreign shores as well. Some fans are always thinking when will the next WWE show in India happen?

Some of the notable WWE events to take place outside the USA includes Crown Jewel and Super-Showdown in Saudi Arabia, another edition of Super-Showdown in Melbourne, Australia, a yearly European tour in major countries like Germany, France, Italy, and many other shows in their neighboring country of Canada.

Apart from them, another important strategic market for the company is its second largest fan base outside America i.e., India. WWE has produced a total of 7 live events in India over the span of nearly 25 years as well as keeping the engagement in full steam through content and fan features on a regular basis.


Rumors have hinted that WWE is planning a major show in India in the coming year, so here are the top 5 stadiums which could host a big WWE PPV show in the future:


1. Indira Gandhi Stadium, Delhi


The only stadium to have a long history of hosting past WWE events for India is the famous Indira Gandhi Stadium in New Delhi. Out of the 7 live events hosted in the country, 4 have been hosted in the largest indoor sporting arena in India and among the largest in Asia.

The past editions of WWE Live events hosted in the stadium include the first show of the 3-city WWE RAW tour in 2002, a two-day event in 2016 as a part of WWE Live India, and one day WWE Super show edition in 2017.

2. Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad


Considered the largest stadium in the world with a seating capacity of 132,000 spectators, situated inside the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave in Ahmedabad, India, and named after one of the greatest political leaders and current Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, the namesake stadium could be the spectacular location to host a high magnitude WWE pay-per-view show for the Indian audience.

3. Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

The sight of the Indian Cricket team’s historic win at the 2011 Cricket World Cup defeating Sri Lanka and becoming the world champions in their own backyard as well as the place where the legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar played the very last match of his international career seems to be an excellent choice for hosting a huge WWE pay-per-view given its rich history.

The sacred ground of the Wankhede Stadium is situated in the Churchgate area of Mumbai and could add another chapter to its already established legacy by organizing one of the biggest live events for India.


4. Eden Gardens, Kolkata


The home of Indian cricket and considered cricket’s answer to the Colosseum, one of the oldest stadiums of India i.e Eden Gardens situated in Kolkata.

The stadium has played host to major international competitions including the World Cup, World Twenty20, and Asia Cup, and could add yet another international event to its illustrious history by becoming the official venue for a major WWE PPV show.

5. Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad 

Named after the former Prime Minister of India, Mr. Rajiv Gandhi, and situated in the eastern suburb of Uppal in Hyderabad with 15 acres of land, the stadium has hosted 5 Tests, 6 ODIs, and 3 T20Is in international cricket as well as certain editions of the Indian Premier League (IPL).


With a list of impressive events under its belt and a spectator capacity of about 55,000 people, the international stadium could be a front runner to host India’s WWE biggest live pay-per-view show in the future.
