We previously reported that WWE will be heading down under later this year for a massive show, currently titled “Super Show-Down.” Following the announcement, a popular Australian television network has poked fun at the company through their broadcast.
On October 6, WWE will be returning to Australia to hold Super Show-Down in front of an expected 100, 000 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. If sold out, this show would likely surpass previous WrestleMania attendance records and possibly be an all-time high for the company.
As far as Australian network TEN is concerned, that may not be the case.
During a two-minute news story on TEN Eyewitness News, the popular Australian Network poked fun at WWE coming to Australia. They interviewed a number of people not familiar with WWE and made jokes at the company’s expense.
This included but was not limited to it not being a real sport, the costumes and attire and the niche audience it has. They did reference the 2002 Global Warming Tour show WWE held, which drew 56, 743 fans.
