It appears that World Wrestling Entertainment will be returning to Western Canada this year after a successful swing to Alberta and BC earlier in the month.

As reported by Ryan Satin on, WWE filed an injunction in New Jersey court in an attempt to prevent bootleg merchandise being sold on the weekend of WrestleMania.  Included in their documents filed with the court is a list of tentative dates for upcoming shows.  Included in that list area return to the Calgary’s Stampede Corral on September 20, with Edmonton’s Rogers Place following on September 21.

On March 15th, WWE returned to Edmonton for the first time in two years to nearly 10,000 screaming and loyal fans. The absence was due to the combat sports moratorium by the Edmonton Combat Sports Commission in early 2017 that was rescinded months later.

As well, NXT will be returning to British Columbia for the first time since 2017 as they travel to Vancouver October 19 and Kelowna October 20.  With many Western Canadian-trained wrestlers such as Chelsea Green, Rachael Evers, and Kyle O’Reilly recently signing with NXT, this could be seen as a bit of a homecoming tour for many of the black-and-yellow brand’s roster.

More details to come.
