PPL Center

Allentown, PA


What a night. What a night at the PPL Center in Allentown, PA. Fans showed up and it was a packed house at the PPL Center. Wrestling has been a staple forever, and especially in the Lehigh Valley as quite a few wrestlers emerged from the Lehigh Valley.

WWE showed up and had the crowd going WILD! McKenzie Mitchell hosted for the evening and did the introductions. The show opened with Bianca Belair against Bayley. It was a wild match until the very end when Bianca was battling and she got some help from Asuka. They wound up winning the match.

LA Knight had a match against Ricochet. LA Knight had the crowd laughing and participating of course. Ricochet didn’t want to hear him talk anymore than the fans that Booing him all night.

There was an Intercontinental Championship match between Sheamus (with Ridge Holland) against Gunther with The Imperium. They were something.

Liv Morgan @YaOnlyLiveOnce made an appearance and the crowd was excited.

The Monster of All Monsters made an appearance. He was in a tag team match with Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Braun Strowman against The Usos and Solo Sikoa. This was a great match. It was fun, there was a trombone involved, dancing, music.

Drew McIntyre went up against Karrion Kross (with Scarlett) in a Street Fight. There were also shenanigans going on backstage.

The main event was the United States Championship with Seth Rollins versus Mustafa Ali. Seth Rollins maintained his belt. The fans were ecstatic. Wrestling is loved by everyone of all-ages. There were families in attendance, friends, groups of all ages. People just having a blast, cheering, doing the chants, the clapping and motivating the wrestlers. The PPL Staff was amazing as always, the Allentown Police Department. It was a blast.
