WWE WrestleMania Shawn Michaels

Coming off the heels of WWE’s announcement that NXT Superstars EC3, Aleister Black, Ricochet and The Velveteen Dream will be competing at the United Kingdom Championship Tournament in London on June 18th, a WWE Hall Of Famer has now been revealed to appear.

Today, WWE has announced that ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels will also be in town for the two-day event:

Shawn Michaels returns to London’s Royal Albert Hall on June 18

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will return to the iconic venue where he fought in the first-ever WWE match to take place at the Royal Albert Hall in 1991, appearing at the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament at the historic arena on Monday, June 18, alongside Triple H.

Michaels and his Rockers tag team partner Marty Jannetty took on The Nasty Boys in the opening match of the Battle Royal at the Royal Albert Hall event, which was screened live in the U.K. on Sky Movies and is available on-demand in its entirety on the award-winning WWE Network. The 1991 event is symbolic for WWE fans in the U.K., as it marked the start of 27 consecutive years of live events there, a streak that continues to this day. Now, members of the WWE Universe attending the WWE U.K. Championship Tournament event on June 18 can celebrate this historic occasion alongside HBK himself.

Currently a coach at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., Michaels will be sure to share his experience with competitors from Great Britain, Ireland and beyond, having appeared at three of the five WWE live events held at the landmark arena to date.

As if HBK’s return to the Royal Albert Hall wasn’t enough, WWE fans can look forward to an appearance from Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE’s Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative and the driving force behind the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament.

Triple H also appeared at the 147-year-old venue in October 1995 on the Full Metal Tour, the most recent WWE event to be held in the building opened in 1871 by Queen Victoria.

The WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament at the Royal Albert Hall on June 18 will feature competitors vying to earn an opportunity to challenge WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne the following night inside London’s most famous venue.

The BruiserWeight will also be in action on June 18, teaming with Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) to face NXT’s Undisputed ERA.

In addition to Dunne’s title defense against the tournament winner, the event on Tuesday, June 19, will feature three NXT championship matches, including an NXT North American Championship Match, an NXT Women’s Championship Match and an NXT Tag Team Championship Match, as well as a tag team match pitting NXT Champion Aleister Black & Ricochet against Velveteen Dream & EC3.

Tickets to see HBK at the Royal Albert Hall are available now at www.bookingsdirect.com and www.livenation.co.uk.

WWE News: SmackDown Live Event Results From Columbia, South Carolina (8/13/18)

Published

on

AJ Styles WWE Champion

While Monday Night RAW was on the air tonight, the Superstars of WWE’s SmackDown Live finished off their string of Live Events with a show this evening in Columbia, South Carolina.

The card remained the same as the rest of this past weekend’s Live Events as Samoa Joe challenged AJ Styles for the WWE Championship, Asuka got a shot at Carmella’s SmackDown Women’s Title, plus Rusev and Lana faced off with Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas and Zelina Vega. There were a couple of changes though, as Tye Dillinger was not in action after taking a nasty fall at last night’s show in Florence, South Carolina (check results here) that knocked him out cold in a match against Shelton Benjamin. Instead, Aiden English went one-on-one with Benjamin, on top of Shinsuke Nakamura defending the US Title against Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton. Below are the results:

  • The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) defeated The Bar
  • Shelton Benjamin defeated Aiden English
  • Rusev & Lana defeated Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas & Zelina Vega
  • United States Title Triple Threat: Shinsuke Nakamura retained over Jeff Hardy & Randy Orton
  • SmackDown Women’s Title: Asuka defeated Carmella by DQ after interference
  • Asuka, Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair defeated Carmella & The IIconics
  • SmackDown Tag Titles: The Bludgeon Brothers retained over Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson
  • WWE Title: AJ Styles retained over Samoa Joe

WWE News: Dean Ambrose Returns On Tonight’s RAW

Published

on

Dean Ambrose

After months of eagerly (and impatiently for some) waiting, WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose finally made his return on tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW from Greensboro, North Carolina.

Throughout tonight’s show, General Manager kept attempting to contact Seth Rollins, who had been in China the past number of days promoting the upcoming shows in September and was having “travel issues”. Meanwhile Rollins’ SummerSlam opponent and Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler, along with Drew McIntyre, kept pestering Angle and wondering if ‘The KingSlayer’ would even show up for their scheduled SummerSlam contract signing. Since Seth was nowhere to be found, Ziggler decided to look over the contract to make sure Angle didn’t make any “mistakes”, noticing that the contract stated Seth could have someone in his corner.

While Dolph initially wasn’t pleased with this, Kurt would offer taking the clause out, but that would mean McIntyre couldn’t be in his corner at SummerSlam either. With ‘The Show Off’ thinking nothing of it, everybody showed up for the contract signing in the final segment of RAW, but still Rollins was absent. Dolph took the opportunity to berate ‘The Architect’ for not showing up, calling for their SummerSlam match to be officially made a forfeit. However, Seth would make his way out as Ziggler put his name on the dotted line, apologizing for being late and for the fans having to sit through Dolph’s “therapy session”.

Rollins would admit that he actually lied and had been around all night, but wanted to wait until Dolph signed the contract and although he was dealing with some travel issues, they were not his own. ‘The KingSlayer’ would state that he’s been sick of dealing with the two-on-one attacks, so he’s got some backup of his own, introducing Dean Ambrose.
