One Of The ‘Biggest Deals In WWE History’ Close To Being Agreed WWE

A deal that is being described as one of the “biggest in WWE history” is reportedly in its “latter stages” of negotiations.

Following an exclusive report from WrestleVotes on June 20, there has been new information learned regarding a deal between WWE and the Indiana Sports Corp that could see the US state host several major WWE events.

The deal would reportedly first bring the 2025 WWE Royal Rumble to Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium, with both a future WrestleMania and SummerSlam both following at some point afterwards.

Adding further details on the prospective deal is the Indianapolis Business Journal, who shared details told to them by an anonymous source, who stated that the deal between WWE and Indiana Sports Corp was in the “latter stages”, with only specific details needing “ironed out”.

The agreement was described by IBJ sources as one of the “biggest in WWE history” should it be finalised.

It will also reportedly not be limited to just the three major PLEs named in WrestleVotes’ original report, with IBJ revealing that multiple other events would be hosted by the city each year – including Raw, SmackDown, non-televised events and other PLEs.

These other events would reportedly be staged at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse, with the deal potentially opening the door for events in other Indiana cities such as Fort Wayne and Evansville.

The deal will reportedly run for at least seven years, however, no specifics have been learned regarding the finances involved as of this time.

Despite this IBJ have reported that the tourism agency is set to utilise the state’s $5 million tourism bid fund in order to help “sweeten the deal” for WWE – a fund that was established in 2022 in order to bring events such as WrestleMania to the city.

Not only is the deal reportedly set to be one of WWE’s biggest ever, but the IBJ also noted that it would be one of the most significant local sports tourism officials have secured in the last decade also.

Indianapolis has never hosted a Royal Rumble event, with the city only hosting WrestleMania and SummerSlam a single time – in 1992 and 2008 respectively.

WrestleTalk will provide further updates on the situation as/when they become available.
