WWE signed a five-year contract extension with Sony Pictures India back in 2020. Under the deal, WWE claimed that it would return to India with bigger live events.

The biggest one yet has just been announced as WWE’s official Twitter account shared that the company will be heading to the city of Hyderabad on Friday, September 8 for the second edition of Superstar Spectacle.

The promotional poster advertises World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER and many other top stars like Becky Lynch and Drew McIntyre.

India’s own, Indus Sher and Jinder Mahal, are also being advertised for the event.

Tickets for the event will go on sale this Friday.

WWE held the first edition of Superstar Spectacle in the ThunderDome in January 2021, as they couldn’t travel to India due to the COVID-19 pandemic back then.

Below is the official press release:

“WWE today announced its long-awaited return to India with WWE Superstar Spectacle at the GMC Balayogi Indoor Stadium (Gachibowli Indoor Stadium), Hyderabad, India, on Friday, September 8, 2023.

This will mark the first live event to take place in India since 2017 and the first-ever WWE live event to be held in Hyderabad.

WWE fans in attendance can look forward to seeing their favorite WWE Superstars in action including: World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens, Intercontinental Champion “The Ring General” GUNTHER, Jinder Mahal, Veer, Sanga, Drew McIntyre, Becky Lynch, Natalya, Matt Riddle, Ludwig Kaiser, and many more*.”

India has WWE’s largest fanbase in terms of audience size. A WWE Official said the following about the Indian wrestling market back in 2017:

“India is one of our top international markets. In terms of audience size, it is our largest. Something like 89 million Indians watched WrestleMania 33, 50 million Indians watch RAW and SmackDown every week (on Sony Ten 1 and Sony Ten 1 HD). Sunday Dhamaal has 25 million tuning in. And those are numbers greater than any other international markets we have.”
