Among the advertised names there was also that of Big E, but the former champion is currently stopped in the pits due to a terrible injury that caused him to break his neck. WWE had a combo show with the stars of Raw, SmackDown and NXT at London's Wembley Arena in November, where we had the opportunity to attend.

WWE has confirmed announced dates for its upcoming European tour.

The wrestling giant will be back next month for a post-WrestleMania run with four shows featuring Big E, Charlotte Flair, Drew McIntyre, Sasha Banks and more top SmackDown stars, while Ronda Rousey will be making two very special appearances.

Kicking things off at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle on April 28, the tour will move to London the following night at the O2 Arena before dates in Paris, France and Leipzig, Germany.

WWE has confirmed the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble winner will only be live at the London and Paris dates.

In a press release, WWE said: ‘Fans attending WWE Live will see their favourite WWE Superstars in action including SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Big E, Drew McIntyre, Sami Zayn, Sheamus, Shinsuke Nakamura and many more.

‘The Baddest Woman on the Planet, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey, will also make her long-awaited return to The O2 in London on Friday, April 29th.

‘This will be the first time Rousey has performed live in London since 2018.’

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Monday, March 14.

This will be WWE’s third tour since the pandemic, after the company came to the UK in both September and November 2021 with stars from Raw and SmackDown making the trip over.

The tour will come after WrestleMania, where the WWE landscape could look very different with Ronda herself chasing gold as she faces Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in Dallas, Texas.

Elsewhere over the stacked weekend – set for the AT&T Stadium on April 2 and 3 – Stone Cold Steve Austin will clash with Kevin Owens on an explosive edition of the KO Show, while Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar face off in a winner takes all bout for their respective Universal and WWE Titles.

Jackass star Johnny Knoxville will also be in action against Sami Zayn, and Logan Paul will take up with The Miz to battle father-son tag team Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
