BREAKING: WWE's new UK superstar wrestlers to join legends at Sheffield Arena
WWE's new UK superstar wrestlers will make history when they battle alongside legends on the next live tour - including a date at Sheffield Arena, we can exclusively reveal.
Stars of the newly created United Kingdom Championship Tournament (UKCT) are for the first time scheduled to appear at select WWE Live Events in the UK and Ireland from May 4 to 12.
The tour includes a night of explosive WWE LIVE action in Yorkshire at Sheffield Arena on Thursday, May 11, from 7.30pm. Ticket details below.
The UKCT was launched only last month with two nights of wrestling at Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom - aired worldwide on the award-winning WWE Network.
Tyler Bate emerged victorious and was crowned the first-ever United Kingdom Champion after 16 of the country's top wrestlers were put in the spotlight.
Now Bate is now scheduled for ring action alongside fellow new UKTC stars Trent Seven, Wolfgang, Joseph Conners, Tyson T-Bone, Mark Andrews, James Drake, Dan Moloney, Sam Gradwell, Saxon Huxley, Tucker, Jordan Devlin and Pete Dunne.
Also on the bill - which can change due to injuries - are some of WWE's biggest established household names, including Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, Bray Wyatt, Becky Lynch, Natalya and many more.
WWE LIVE is billed as a unique blend of sport and action-packed family entertainment, bursting with all the energy of a rock concert, in a fun, lively and exciting environment.
