2016 UK Tour Update
Next week marks a WWE tradition, when the stars of the WWE Universe return to the UK for the post WrestleMania Revenge Tour. With Shane McMahon now seemingly ruling the roost over the WWE Universe will he return for the third week in a row, how and what will happen when RAW and SmackDown hit the O2 Arena in London, England for their annual taping as we continue on the Road to Payback in just a couple of weeks time.
According to the O2 Website, there are several key WWE superstars advertised for the forthcoming tour which is still subject to change given how The Undertaker is no longer advertised on the tour which has only fueled the rumours of his impending retirement. Superstars currently advertised for the tour are; Ryback, Kane, Dolph Ziggler, Kevin Owens, Rusev, Sheamus, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, The Dudley Boyz, Braun Strowman, The New Day and The Big Show to name but a few. The last time the WWE held the RAW taping in the UK, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship had being declared vacant in the run-up to Survivor Series after Seth Rollins suffered a devastating knee injury and Wayne Rooney slapping Wade Barrett.
