See Your Favourite WWE Stars Up Close And In Action
Are you ready? NO, Brisbane...I said... ARE... YOU... READY?! Hopefully you're a long time fan, otherwise you'll have no idea what I'm on about. But if you are, then you'll be happy to know that the WWE is returning to Australia this July.
These guys and girls really do know how to put on one uniquely entertaining show. We watch them do it on TV every week and it's no exception when they're away from home. Speaking of TV, if you watch the program every week you know you're in for a bit of fun. These guys really play it up to the Aussie audience, even if sometimes it doesn't feel like they fully get the culture. I don't know about you but I get pretty jealous watching the Americans most weeks cheer and jeer the superstars of the WWE. This is the one time of year we can show them what we're made of.

Keep your eyes out for some stars you don't know as well. The WWE like to send their developmental talent on these tours before they become recurring characters on TV. You've heard of Alberto Del Rio? He toured Australia before he making it on to TV, now he's one of the company's biggest names. So you never know which future champion you'll see in action before the rest of the world.

The set up is just like you see on TV, complete with stage, music, the big screen and of course, the ring. They won't be filming it for a worldwide audience, but you'll still get that awesome production value. Get ready for singles matches, tag team matches, gimmick matches and best of all, championship matches. Some titles like the tag team championships have changed hands on tours like this before, so you never know. If you really want to commemorate the tour, be sure to check out the merchandise stands before, during or after the show. From past experience they'll have replica title belts, T-shirts, toys and DVDs on sale. They can be a bit pricey and be warned, the sizing of American T-shirts differ vastly from the Australian sizes. So be sure to measure up.

They only come to Australia once a year, so don't miss this tour. Even if you've been once the line up, the action and the stars are always different. Unleash your inner wrestling fan, cheer on your favourites and boo the rest. Be part of the crowd, otherwise you'll be missing out on all the fun.
