The sports-entertainment spectacle known as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is coming back to Cedar Rapids! Fans who love the hard-hitting dropkicks, Claymore kicks, high-flying heavyweights, biting banter, and good old-fashioned body slams have a chance to see it all up close and personal once again.
For the first time in nearly three years, fans of WWE's "Smackdown!" brand can pack the Alliant Energy Powerhouse when the show returns to the City of Five Seasons!
Spring into action with your favorite superstars from the Friday night "Smackdown!" roster making a Sunday house call. "Smackdown!" Women's Champion Charlotte Flair is set to appear, taking on Naomi. At the "Head of the Table" is (current) Universal Champion Roman Reigns making his way to Cedar Rapids to face off against Drew McIntyre!
Others on the card include Intercontinental Champion Ricochet, Sami Zayn, and more!
Generations of fans have grown up watching wrestling, but the show has evolved into a worldwide entertainment extravaganza that brings something to the table for just about everyone.

Unfortunately, one of the stars who was set to be on the card in Cedar Rapids recently suffered a neck injury that is likely to keep the Iowa favorite on the sidelines for this show. Former Hawkeye football player, Ettore Ewen, known to WWE fans as "Big E" is in good spirits and according to Yahoo!, is expected to fully recover.
Don't let his (likely) absence stop you from enjoying every minute of the memorable action, surprises, pageantry, and excitement of it all, at the "Sunday Stunner" on Sunday, May 22 at 7 p.m. at the Alliant Energy Powerhouse Arena.Get our free mobile app
