The captivating lineup of matches at the WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event in Perth, Australia, held on February 24, marked WWE's first Pay-Per-View in Australia since 2018, offering fans an unforgettable spectacle.

That night, Rhea Ripley successfully defended her Women’s World Title against Nia Jax, and Drew McIntyre secured a victory in the Men’s Elimination Chamber match, earning the right to challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40, adding another layer of excitement to the already electrifying atmosphere.

Becky Lynch solidified her return by winning the Women’s Elimination Chamber match, in the process setting up a long-awaited showdown with Ripley at WrestleMania 40. Beyond the in-ring victories, reaching and returning from this destination were challenges faced by countless others, according to Fightful Select.

Much of the detail outlined in this report on travel arrangements often differed markedly by each individual and WWE personnel, with some traveling by buses provided to members of the roster by the company as well.

Some traveled to Australia with a couple of stops and flight layovers in California and Hawaii, taking them so many hours before finally getting down under.

But the return proved to be a nightmare with some stars looking at four or five connecting flights before reaching their destination. Such complicated travel details just show how hard professional wrestlers undergo in their daily course and just prove that it is a brutal business.

Though the travel ordeals were quite unfortunate, they are intrinsic to the global scale at which WWE operates, showcasing the stars' commitment to entertaining fans worldwide. However, poor logistics management could dampen their enthusiasm.

The energy and excitement displayed in the ring are truly exhilarating, setting a high standard for all future WrestleMania 40 events. This dedication underlines the wrestlers' resilience and passion, enhancing the anticipation for what is set to be an unforgettable WrestleMania 40, where athletes will once again defy the odds to deliver spectacular performances.
