WWE has announced that it will visit South Africa to hold two-day-try outs during their live tour.
In a statement posted on WWE’s official website, WWE’s executive vice president (global talent strategy and development), Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque, who is also a WWE legend, said he wants to bring back some of SA’s “rough” athletes.
“SA is renowned for producing tough, uncompromising athletes proven by the hugely dominant performance of the Springboks rugby team last year to become world champions. I want to bring those same dynamic, powerful and entertaining qualities from South Africa’s best male and female athletes to WWE.
“My message to every athlete and performer in South Africa is simple: This is your chance to change your life. Take this opportunity to follow your dream and represent South Africa on the global stage as a WWE Superstar.”
The tour first kicks off at Grand Arena in Cape Town on April 29 and will then make its way to the Moses Mabhida Stadium in sunny Durban on April 30, before finally heading to the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg on May 1 and 2.
