TKO Group Holdings, the new WWE and UFC merger company, has announced the first event as a newly formed group and the highly anticipated WWE Elimination Chamber: Perth.

The upcoming event will take place at Opus Stadium in Perth, Western Australia, on Saturday, February 24, 2024. This will be the first WWE event in Australia since 2018.
