Nick Khan explains how WWE will alternate between North America and international PLE locations

Appearing at the CAA World Congress of Sports convention at The Marriott at L.A. Live, WWE President Nick Khan gave an outline of the future of WWE’s premium live event locations.

Khan noted that after meeting with other executives in WWE, it was decided that Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, Money In The Bank, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series will be taking place either in the United States or Canada moving forward.

The so-called “big five” are a hot commodity for WWE where cities are now actually bidding to host these events.

Khan also added that the plan is for other premium live events on the yearly WWE calendar to be held overseas at different locations.

This news will come as a blow for those locations such as London who wanted to host WrestleMania but obviously, moving such a massive event overseas would be a logistical nightmare.

Speaking of WrestleMania, future WrestleManias will also see a change in tactics.

“Going in early April at an outdoor stadium (on the East Coast)…assume you’re not going to see that again,” Khan said. “Going up against the Final Four Saturday night games, assume you’re not going to see that again.”

Philadelphia was the last city chosen by the old regime and had been locked for the past four years.

During the same convention, Nick Khan also said that they’re not ready to announce the location of WrestleMania 41 yet, with Minneapolis and Las Vegas being under serious consideration as host cities.
