Nick Khan Discusses WWE’s Plans for International PLEs


WWE President Nick Khan discussed the company’s plans for future PLE event while he was speaking at the World Congress of Sports convention on Wednesday, and outlined the big five PLE’s specific strategy regarding locations.

WWE’s big five PLEs (WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Money in the Bank) will be taking place in either the United States or in Canada with the goal being for other PLEs to be held in international locations, Khan said (h/t Wrestling Observer).

“We sat down together a few years ago and decided, so the big five premium live events … should be in the United States or Canada,” Khan said during the event. “All of the other events, the goal is to have them from international locations.”

WWE has Backlash taking place in France on May 4th, King & Queen of the Ring taking place in Saudi Arabia on May 25th, Clash at the Castle taking place in Scotland on June 15th, Bash in Berlin taking place in Germany on August 31st, as well as Money in the Bank taking place in Toronto on July 9th.

“There’s a halo effect on those big deals” Khan added. “Merchandise sales, relevancy goes up, and who knows — is the next Yao Ming of that country watching [WWE] and wanting to do it in 10 years.”

Khan noted that WWE isn’t ready to announce the location for WrestleMania 41 yet, but it is rumored that the annual event may be moved to May and could be focused on avoiding outdoor East coast stadium locations.

Las Vegas is believed to be one of the cities under consideration for next year’s event.
