Get ready for pandemonium Sarnia – WWE SmackDown! makes its debut at the RBC Centre this weekend and promises to "Just Bring It" with a full court press of mayhem, physical hijinks and a bit of comedy relief all mixed into one night of outstanding entertainment for the whole family.
The WWE SmackDown! World Tour will be in Sarnia Saturday, Sep. 22, for what's sure to be a memorable, high-octane night of sports-entertainment with a bell time for the highly-anticipated show set for 7 p.m.
Superstars scheduled to appear in the squared-circle this weekend include WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, former champion Alberto Del Rio, World Tag Team Champs Kane and Daniel Bryan, R-Truth and Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett, and Ryback. WWE Divas Kaitlyn and Natalya are also expected to be on hand for the night.
Arguably one of the most popular wrestlers in the business today, Stephen "Sheamus" Farrelly has held the WWE Championship on two occasions before winning the Heavyweight Championship recently at the PPV event Night of Champion, defeating Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio will face Sheamus for a rematch Saturday in an attempt to regain the championship from him, hoping to make Sheamus’s current title reign his shortest yet.
Another noteworthy matchup is expected to be that between the tag team of Kane and Daniel Bryan versus R-Truth and Kofi Kingston for the WWE Tag Team Championship. Like Del Rio, R-Truth and Kingston dropped the tag titles to Kane and Bryan at Night of Champions and are gunning to get them back this weekend at the RBC Centre.
LambtonShield.com talked with Ron “R-Truth” Killings today by phone from his home in Charlotte, North Carolina, and asked him about what we can expect this weekend and how feels about being a WWE Superstar.
Likening the action to be expected to a rollercoaster ride, he added, “You’ll get all of the emotions in one night from happy to sad to on-the-edge of your seat excitement.”
Killings, who himself was an avid fan of professional wrestling while growing up, says he looked to wrestling legends such as of Ron Simmons, Junk Yard Dog, Rick Flair and Dusty Rhodes.
He says he enjoys being a role model and inspiring others, “If you have goals and set your mind to achieving them – you can do anything you want.”
“It’s gotten better and there’s more stories and excitement that appeals to women and kids,” then added, “there’s really a lot more for the whole family to come out and enjoy.”
As for whether or not he and his tag team partner will regain their championship belts Saturday, “You never know what will happen but you can expect that we’ll give 110% when we get there,” adding, “We’d love to put those titles back around our waists and bring’em back home.”
If you grew up loving professional wrestling or you’re a new fan who’s addicted to the drama, you’ll want to come out Saturday and check out the action at RBC Centre.
Tickets are still available at the RBC Centre box office and at all local outlets.
