Wrestling tour lands in City

Wrestling’s premier talent will be showcased in Red Deer on May 25 at the Westerner as part of the WWE Raw World Tour.

Tickets range in price from $20-$110, and can be purchased on www.wwe.com until the day of the event.

Since 1993 WWE Raw has been wrestling’s flagship program due to its storied history, high ratings and featured talent.

One could draw a comparison between WWE Raw and the NHL, as they are both the premier divisions of their respected sports.

WWE Raw features wrestling’s best, such as Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Ryback, Chris Jericho, Kane, Kofi Kingston, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, and the Bella Twins.

WWE Raw is the host of the WWE Championship, Divas’ Championship and U.S. Championship events making it the most watched wrestling program in the world.

Although each match is predetermined, the characters that the wrestlers portray and the story lines that are created make for a highly entertaining spectacle, say fans.

There are three basic parts to a WWE story line: the gimmick, which summarizes who each wrestler is, and what makes them tick; the feud, which is the actual act of two or more wrestlers fighting and the angle, which draws in the audience to the story line.

Apart from the storylines, the physical act of the wrestlers fighting is expertly choreographed and rehearsed due to the dangerous nature of the stunts.
