WWE Live In Malaysia This October!

As incredible as it may sound, it was some 12 years ago that the WWE last held a "live" event here in Malaysia. I say "incredible" cos as you know, pro wrestling has a huge following here since time immemorial. Generations of Malaysians have been huge fans of the sport, no matter the background, income bracket or race. So when WWE Superstars turned up in the flesh in 2002, the buzz was huge, needless to say.

And after a long absence, WWE will be back here for not one, but TWO nights of sweat, suplexes and scantily-clad divas (maybe)! 

The goss had been circulating for quite a bit and when it was announced that WWE legend Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat was going to be in town for a "special announcement", the rumour turned into exciting anticipation.

And through my association with PGM (Peminat Gusti Malaysia, a club that I've been supporting since my MHI days), I was invited to the press conference at KLCC on the 22nd of May.

Apart from the press, there were 60 of us from PGM and also MWC (Malaysian Wrestling Club), and as a result, it turned out to be more than a normal press conference complete with decked-out fanatics and wrestling chants.

And of course everyone went into a frenzy when the legend himself made his entrance.

So, here are the details: WWE Live Malaysia Tour will be held on 10 & 11 October 2014 at Putra Stadium, Bukit Jalil brought to you by Astro. Some of the superstars who'll be coming include John Cena, Bad News Barrett, The Shield and the Family Wyatt.

Tickets will go on sale beginning 31st May 2014 through ticketpro. And here are the pricing details:

I'm pretty much there. Most probably at ringside. Personally, this would be my third "live" WWE event, the first being No Mercy 2000 in Albany, New York. 

See you guys there! Whatcha gonna do when the WWE runs wild on youuuuuuuu....
