The announcement came prematurely last Tuesday when an overzealous webmaster for SMTickets posted about the event, but the post was taken down immediately, leading fans who saw the post to think it was a prank. WWE, however, confirmed the news the day after, and the post has since been restored in the SMTickets website.
The event will take place on September 9 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, and will feature WWE Superstars like the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns, "The Phenomenal One" AJ Styles, "The Prizefighter" Kevin Owens, Kane, Alberto del Rio, WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day, WWE Women's Champion Charlotte, "The Legit Boss" Sasha Banks, and more (talent line-up is subject to change). The tickets will be available at the SMTickets website on June 3.
WWE last visited Manila in 2009 when they held their SmackDown/ECW Tour at the Araneta Coliseum, with former Superstars Jeff Hardy and CM Punk headlining the show. Batista promoted the said tour, but was not in the card himself. They also had two separate tours in 2006--the Raw Live Tour in February, headlined by John Cena, Edge, Triple H and Ric Flair, and the SmackDown Survivor Series Tour in October, also at the Big Dome, headlined by Batista and The Undertaker.
I hope I save enough money before the date.
