WWE slams into Macon Coliseum on Sunday

Middle Georgia wrestling fans can expect to get “shell shocked” when WWE superstar Ryback performs Sunday in the SummerSlam HeatWave event at the Macon Coliseum.

The Intercontinental Champion will face former World Heavyweight Champion Big Show.

“It will be two of the biggest guys in the WWE, two big bulls, going at it. And I hope at the end of the show, the fans will get to see Ryback pick the 400-pound Big Show up over his head and shell shock him,” Ryback said of his signature move.

The finishing move takes its name from Ryback’s childhood love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well as the meaning of the word as used in battle, and he executes the move when his opponent is fatigued and worn down.

In addition to Ryback’s match with Big Show, the evening’s card also features “The Viper” Randy Orton vs. Sheamus, Prime Time Players vs. New Day in the WWE Tag Team Championship Match and Paige vs. Nikki Bella with Brie Bella vs. Naomi with Tamina in the Divas Championship Triple Threat Match, plus many more.
