The WWE Superstars are revered by their fans in India. When we brought down one of their top talents, Big Show, to India the response to him was remarkable, with more than 6,000 people turning up to see him at Ansal Plaza in Delhi. That experience led us to encourage the WWE to come perform in India and give Indian viewers the unique opportunity to watch their favourite stars from Ten Sports live."

Viewers can win two free tickets in each city through a contest that kicks off today on Ten Sports.
