Over the last few years “an evening with…” style events have become increasingly popular as they give fans a chance to meet various legends and heroes from their childhoods. This phenomenon isn’t just something happening in wrestling as companies around the world are hosting evenings with athletes from a plethora of sports as well as acting stars from the stage and screen.
Among the companies that host this style event North East Sporting Events has a proven history of hosting shows as in recent years they have brought ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair and Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart to the Northeast of England as well working with another company to bring Kevin Nash to the area. With this in mind I was excited to hear that they had decided to work with ‘The Big Guy’ Ryan Reeves, better know as WWE’s Ryback, to bring Mr “Feed Me More” to my part of the UK.
Unlike the legends previously brought over by the promotions company this is the first time a superstar has been brought over while still in their heyday. Still only 35yrs old and possessing an incredible physique (6’3” by around 300lbs of solid muscle) since leaving the WWE in August this year ‘The Big Guy’ has become arguably one of the most high profile free agents in the world of wrestling and bringing him to Newcastle is an incredible feather in the cap for North East Sporting Events.
The evening will contain a full 70 minute interview followed by a question and answer session and NESE have advertised “Ryback will reveal all about his time with the biggest wrestling company in the world… Outspoken from the outset, hear about ”that” feud with CM Punk, title reigns, and all the backstage drama and gossip!”. On top of the interview and Q&A there will be photo and autograph opportunities available for additional fees.
Prices for the night are:
Photo £20 (payable on the night)
Signature £15 (payable on the night)
Photo & signature combo ticket £50.00
Under 13’s free with paying adult (1 child per paying adult)
