Speaking at the Moffett Nathanson’s Technology, Media, and
Telecom Conference, WWE Chief Executive Officer Nick Khan
confirmed that the company is going back to India in
September of this year.
Khan did not elaborate on what kind of event it will be or
if it will be a Network special.
WWE was scheduled to go to Hyderabad in January of this year
but that show was postponed after India’s largest TV
providers – Sony and Zee – announced they were merging late
last year. During conference calls it was noted that they
would be visiting the country after the merger was complete.
Sony holds the TV rights for WWE in the country.
WWE taped a special for India during the pandemic titled
Superstar Spectacle, showcasing most of the Indian talent
they had on the roster, and the show aired on January 26,
2021 as part of India’s Republic Day celebrations. WWE later
said that over 20 million people saw the broadcast on Sony.
