7 months ago By Jhon Woug

On September 8, 2023, WWE made a triumphant return to India with the WWE India Superstar Spectacle, a night that fans will cherish for years to come. After a six-year hiatus, the wrestling extravaganza returned to Hyderabad, delivering a mix of electrifying matches, unexpected surprises, and unforgettable moments. While the absence of some superstars due to last-minute changes didn’t dampen the spirits, the event became a testament to the enduring passion of Indian wrestling fans. In this article, we’ll delve into the highlights of this spectacular night, featuring legends like John Cena and Seth Rollins and an unexpected appearance by the Great Khali.

The evening kicked off with a bang as Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, two WWE stalwarts, faced off against the formidable Indian tag team, Indus Sher, represented by Veer Mahan and Sanga. The crowd was in full support of the hometown heroes, Zayn and Owens, which was an unexpected but heartwarming twist. In a match filled with energy and athleticism, Zayn and Owens managed to secure the victory, proving that their wrestling prowess knows no bounds.

In the second match of the evening, fans witnessed Rhea Ripley defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Natalya. This match was originally scheduled to feature Zoey Stark, but a last-minute change brought Natalya into the ring. Rhea Ripley showcased her dominance from the start, relentlessly attacking Natalya and ultimately securing a win with her signature move, the Riptide. The crowd was electrified by Ripley’s powerful performance, and her presence added a dose of star power to the event.

One of the most heartwarming and surprising moments of the night was the return of India’s beloved wrestling giant, the Great Khali. Although it was not a “return” in the traditional sense, as Khali is no longer under contract with WWE, his appearance was a symbolic homecoming. Khali’s contributions to putting India on the global WWE map cannot be overstated, and his impact on the thriving Indian wrestling scene was evident by the crowd’s thunderous response to his presence.

In a hard-fought battle, Gunther faced off against Shanky in a match for the Intercontinental Championship. While Drew McIntyre was originally scheduled to take on Gunther, Shanky stepped in as his replacement. Despite Shanky’s valiant efforts, Gunther’s power and experience proved to be overwhelming. The Imperium leader secured his victory with a vicious chop and a daring flying clothesline, extending his reign as the longest-reigning Intercontinental champion in WWE history.

The main event of the night featured two legendary WWE superstars, John Cena and Seth Rollins, teaming up to face the formidable duo of Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci, collectively known as The Imperium. Cena’s long-awaited debut in India was a moment of sheer excitement for fans who had waited years to see the 16-time champion in action.

The match lived up to the hype as Cena and Rollins displayed their unmatched wrestling skills and charisma. Despite facing a strong and cohesive performance from The Imperium, Cena and Rollins managed to steal the show. The crowd erupted in cheers when Cena’s iconic entrance music hit, and his “Super Cena” transformation during the match brought back fond memories of his wrestling prowess. In the end, Cena and Rollins secured a thrilling victory, making the night truly special for the fans in Hyderabad.

The WWE India Superstar Spectacle Live event on September 8, 2023, will go down in history as a night filled with excitement, surprises, and unforgettable moments. From the surprising appearance of the Great Khali to the stellar performances of Rhea Ripley, Gunther, John Cena, and Seth Rollins, this event showcased the enduring love of Indian wrestling fans. Despite last-minute changes to the match card, WWE delivered a spectacular show that left fans craving more. As the Indian wrestling scene continues to thrive, the legacy of this event will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in its future success.
