Back to normal? The Coronavirus pandemic has shaken up the wrestling world in a variety of ways, with the biggest change of them all being the lack of fans in attendance at events. It makes things feel all the less important and also changes the way the company’s finances work. Things have started to get back to normal though and now WWE has taken another big step back towards normal.

WWE has announced a four city United Kingdom tour, taking place from September 19-22. The tour will be SmackDown exclusive and includes names such as Roman Reigns, the Usos, Big E., Bianca Belair, Bayley and Sasha Banks. Assuming she does not appear before then, this would be Belair’s first appearance since the April 16 edition of SmackDown. The tour will include the following events:

  • Newcastle – Utilita Arena (Sunday, September 19, 2021)
  • London – The O2 (Monday, September 20, 2021)
  • Cardiff – Motorpoint Arena (Tuesday, September 21, 2021)
  • Glasgow – The SSE Hydro (Wednesday, September 22, 2021)

WWE has been overseas before. Check out some of their previous appearances:

Opinion: This is rather cool to see as it means things are getting back to normal both in America and around the world. The idea of seeing WWE going outside of Florida would have been insane just a few months ago and now they are going over to Europe for a string of shows. It is great to have things be a little more like they were before everything went nuts and it makes things feel more hopeful.

What does this mean for WWE? Who would you like to see on the tour? Let us know in the comments below.
