Returning to her home continent, Rhea Ripley, undefeated since May 2022, entered as a significant crowd favorite. Despite Nia Jax being portrayed as a formidable heel, she entered Perth’s Optus Stadium as a considerable underdog at +1100. With Ripley’s strong presence in her home country under a new management regime and an upcoming match against Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 40, the likelihood of Ripley losing was minimal.

This scenario mirrors the challenge seen in the women’s division akin to the Roman Reigns situation in the men’s division.

Nevertheless, Ripley’s captivating presence, coupled with the distinctive Perth audience, contributed to an extraordinary atmosphere, generating a unique big-match ambiance. Although this uniqueness diminishes with each occurrence, WWE’s international Premium Live Events (PLEs) maintain their exceptional quality.

WWE has experienced remarkable, if not record-setting, ticket sales for recent international events. Notably, the Clash at the Castle in Principality Stadium in 2022 saw the sale of nearly 63,000 tickets, resulting in an $8 million live gate, marking WWE’s largest European gate to date. The event also contributed £22 million to the Welsh Economy. Last year’s Elimination Chamber, hosted in Montreal and featuring hometown hero Sami Zayn, set new records in live gate, viewership, and merchandise sales during the PLE.

However, the distinction between WWE’s recent international Premium Live Events (PLEs) and WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth lies in the fact that recent international PLEs witnessed at least one local competitor facing defeat in their home country, leaving a less-than-pleasant memory. Notably, Damian Priest and Zelina Vega both experienced losses at WWE Backlash 2023, while Drew McIntyre fell to Roman Reigns at Clash in the Castle 2022, and Sami Zayn faced defeat at Elimination Chamber in Montreal.

Contrastingly, this year’s event in Perth was a celebration of arguably the most dominant figure in professional wrestling, Rhea Ripley. While Roman Reigns’ prolonged world championship reign is likely to conclude at WrestleMania 40, Ripley’s dominance shows no signs of waning. Not only did Ripley secure another successful world title defense at Elimination Chamber, but she is poised to enter WrestleMania 40 as the favored contender.

The upcoming international PLE, WWE Backlash: France on May 4, 2024, presents a unique scenario. With no native French WWE Superstars, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens could be considered de facto natives as French-Canadians. Considering the positive reception of Rhea’s victory in her home country, envision the jubilation if Zayn were to dethrone GUNTHER in France.
