Holding premium live events outside of their home market in the United States has increasingly become more routine for WWE of late, and this morning (Oct. 25) they’ve announced another one — Bash in Berlin.

That show will happen in Germany next summer. Sat., Aug 31, 2024 to be exact, which is during Labor Day weekend here in the U.S. That means it will likely compete with AEW All Out (typically held on the Sunday before the Monday holiday) for wrestling fans’ attention. It’s also the weekend after AEW’s already announced Aug. 25 All In show from London’s Wembley Stadium.
For WWE’s own schedule, this probably means SummerSlam will remain in the late July/early August spot on the calendar its taken the past two years. SummerSlam is a stadium show, while Bash in Berlin will take place at the indoor, 17,000 seat Mercedes-Benz Arena.
Bash in Berlin means WWE will have at least four international PLEs on its 2024 schedule, joining Feb. 24’s Elimination Chamber from Perth, Australia and the usual two Saudi Arabian shows.
Here’s the official press release for Bash in Berlin:
