Paul Benson, Managing Director, Hooked On Events Ltd said: “We are so proud to once again be bringing our PPV parties to fans around the country. With eleven venues, this will be by far the biggest set of events we have ever done. We get overwhelmingly good feedback from our brilliant guests who come and enjoy WWE shows with us time and time again. We really feel like we are filling a gap for wrestling fans. For so long, the only choice was to watch alone or at a friend’s house. We didn’t have the chance to enjoy these shows as part of a wider community like other sports fans do. It’s incredible that people continue to come out in such large numbers to join in the atmosphere and we aim to continue expanding our reach across the UK to allow as many fans as possible the chance to join in the fun.”
