The WWE is touring New Zealand later this year for a Christchurch show

21 Mar 2017

The WWE is touring New Zealand again as the professional wrestling company is returning to Christchurch after nearly a decade long absence. 

The last time the WWE toured Christchurch was way back in 2008. Now professional wrestling comes back to Christchurch as the WWE will bring the action to the city on September 13th, 2017. 

Bear in mind only one Christchurch show has been announced at the Horncastle arena. For the first time in ages, the WWE is not doing a show in Auckland's Vector Arena. They already did a great show last August. 

“We are excited to bring WWE Live back to New Zealand” said Paul Dainty, President & CEO of TEG Dainty. “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.”

Some of the stars you will get to see include Roman Reigns, The New Day, Kevin Owens, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Chris Jericho and more. The talent and card is subject to change so more details should be finalised closer to the time.

Tickets start from just $50 and VIP packages are also available. You can book tickets at Ticketek starting at 10am on Monday March 27th. I went to last year's show at Vector Arena and had a great time. It's totally worth going if you are a huge WWE fan.
