South Africa fans got a feel of the WWE live action in three shows that were staged for the crazy wrestling fanatics in Cape Town, Pretoria and Johannesburg over the weekend.

The South African episodes ended with a sold out show at the 20,000 seater TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg on Saturday.

The ambiance, the sound, the lighting was all perfect for the show and the fans’ involvement all made for a perfect WWE show that left the fans yearning for more.

One thrilled lady fan after the show said she wouldn’t mind having the stars again in one months’ time. From the attendance, you could tell that it was mostly the children who dragged their parents in and their voices were prominent during the event as they chorused the stars’ popular taglines and songs.

The family-friendly events featured WWE Superstars such as Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns, RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Asuka, Cedric Alexander, Gulak, Nia Jax, Bayley, RAW Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus among others.

It was a spectacle watching the wrestlers somersault, jump over ropes and exhibited great athleticism to the thrill of the revelers.

When Lion AJ pulled out his guitar and belted out “I say do you love a lion’ the fans roared in unison before he threw an insult saying; “Oh it feels good to be loved. I just wish I would be loved by people who actually matter; I mean what I’m I even doing here, I just don’t care who is out there tonight,” said before he received all kinds of boos from the crowd. “I’m just the biggest musical icon on this planet or do you think there is a bigger story than me? I dare anyone who think they are better musicians than me to step out tonight,”

The crowd went wild when South African musician AKA stepped in the ring to dare the wrestler who ‘challenged him to bring out what he has got. AKA just thrilled the audience the more when he replied; “Do you have an idea where you are…you had to come here to see a real superstar,” AKA said before the Lion took on Joe Samoa.

The main event was between a tag team match between Braun Strowman/ Roman Reins and Gallows and Karl Anderson.
