The crowd bellows and a sea of foam fingers begin to wag as the compere starts the first fight of the night - there’s nothing quite like a WWE crowd!

It’s been over 20 years since I sat and watched the likes of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage squaring off, and - a generation on (literally - Ric Flair’s daughter is here fighting!) not much has changed. WWE is still a great night of entertainment; dripping with showmanship, bravado and plenty of choreographed pain. Once the night got going, it was one fight after another - one-to-one fights, followed by six-man tag teams, and a title match between Canadians Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens that featured a sidekick to the face that looked pretty real. And while a third of the audience were kids, the rest was simply a bunch of big kids, proving WWE doesn’t discriminate, and all are welcome - waving their homemade placards high.
