Christchurch to get WWE’s Only New Zealand Show in 2017
After a successful tour to New Zealand in 2016, WWE have today confirmed that they are returning to the land of the long white cloud in 2017 for one show only. South Island fans prepare to rejoice because that one WWE Live show is coming to Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Wednesday, 13 September, 2017!
I was at the Auckland show in 2016 and WWE put on a fantastic show that had fans crying out for more as a host of WWE’s biggest superstars made the journey to our shores. Once again WWE are going big with the likes of Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Enzo & Big Cass, Tag Team Champions Gallows & Anderson, Braun Strowman, The New Day, Sheamus & Cesaro, Finn Balor, Rusev w/Lana, Women’s Champion Bayley, Sasha Banks, Charlotte and more set to put on the spectacular WWE Live Event. Do remember though that scheduling of the Superstars can change as the event draws closer, just like last year where John Cena was announced quite late in the piece and of course if any of them happen to get injured you’re not going to see them get wheeled out onto stage either.
Speaking about the return of WWE to New Zealand and Christchurch getting their first show since 2008, Paul Dainty, President & CEO of Promotion CompanY TEG Dainty said, “We are excited to bring WWE Live back to New Zealand. We’re also incredibly excited about returning to Christchurch, this is our first visit back since 2008 and just like last year’s sold-out show in Auckland, we promise an action-filled night that will have young and old on their feet roaring in excitement. This one-night-only show is the only stop in New Zealand in 2017, so it is not to be missed.”
Tickets go on sale through Ticketek on Monday, 27 March, 2017 with tickets starting from $50 (plus some annoying booking fees and whatever else Ticketek decide to sting you for).
