WWE wrestlers return to Minneapolis for Monday Night Raw this October


The wrestling superstars of the WWE will be returning to Minneapolis this October.

The Target Center confirmed on Monday it will play host to WWE Monday Night Raw on Oct. 24.

Listed on the bill as making his Twin Cities debut is Finn Balor, who on Sunday at Summer Slam became the first winner of the new WWE Universal Championship, defeating Seth Rollins – who is also scheduled to appear.

Other stars on the bill include Kevin Owens, the New Day, Sasha Banks, Chris Jericho and Roman Reigns.

Noticeably absent from the initial bill is Brock Lesnar, the University of Minnesota wrestling champion who has become one of the top-drawing stars in both the WWE and UFC.

Lesnar was given a hero's welcome the last time WWE came to Minneapolis in August 2015, when he was building up to a Summer Slam match against the Undertaker.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. from the Target Center's box office, or online at AXS.com, or by phone t 1-888-9-AXS-TIX. They cost between $22 and $112 before fees.
