Following Froch’s victory at Wembley, sports fans will be looking to get their fix of the world’s greatest warriors going at it, and in November, the arena will be opening its doors to the mighty WWE.
The show on November 5th will see some of wrestling’s biggest fighters clash in the square circle, showing off with their suplexes, elbow drops, clotheslines and piledrivers. The US cultural phenomenon will be coming to the city for two special events, and the line-up already looks fantastic, with fans having the chance to see the likes of Randy Orton, John Cena and Sheamus.
Having been founded in 1952, WWE hosts around 320 televised and non-televised events a year, broadcasting to over 36 million viewers across 150 countries. The shows are not actual sporting competitions but more an entertainment art form, driven by storylines, scripted arguments and choreographed matches – but viewers should note that these moves do put the wrestlers at risk of injury.
Thousands of fans are set to descend down to the Wembley to see if any guest stars make an appearance, while the classics will all be fighting one another so that they can go back to the States named top dog. Tickets are selling like hot cakes so if you want to nab a seat, you will need to be quick. Be sure to also book into a room in one of the many Montcalm London hotels available, as the peak tourist period can often extend into November.
After the event, be sure to head to the West End or Shoreditch, where you will find an array of trendy hipster bars serving all manner of swanky cocktails and luscious drinks. There is no better way to end a night of frivolous fun!
