WWE has announced a return to China, set to happen on September 21, 2019 This will be the fourth year that Vince McMahon’s company has toured the country and the top stars are coming along for the ride.
Roman Reigns, Charlotte Flair, Finn Bálor, Kofi Kingston, Shinsuke Nakamura and Kevin Owens are just a few of the Superstars booked for the tour. Boa and Xia Li, two Chinese stars currently training in WWE’s Performance Center, will also be involved.
Triple H spoke about the Shanghai tour, as well as WWE’s efforts to recruit talent from China.
“We are excited to once again bring WWE’s larger-than-life Superstars to our passionate fans in China,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “With our WWE scouts in Shanghai seeing dozens of Chinese athletes and performers at casting calls, I am looking forward to the day when one of these people will reach the top and appear alongside global WWE Superstars such as Roman Reigns, Kofi Kingston, Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins.”
WWE is indeed expanding its influence throughout the world and the best example of that is the company’s NXT UK brand. Speculation has run rampant among WWE fans that the company will continue to grow the NXT brand in other countries as well, like Japan and Mexico. China may also be on the company’s short list for NXT divisions as time goes on.
The largest WWE tryout in China to date is set to take place from July 15-18, ahead of WWE Live's return to Shanghai on Sept. 21!https://t.co/RAa105bING
