Bray Wyatt, Mojo Rawley, Alicia Fox, Bayley, Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley stopped to snap selfies and sign autographs for fans July 7 outside Madison Square Garden, prior to the WWE SummerSlam Heatwave show. The meet and greet, which was also attended by Kevin Owens, Liv Morgan and the Lucha Dragons, wasn't an official WWE event.
It was simply a spontaneous showing of love from the fans, reciprocated by the WWE Superstars. By now, WWE fans know where the fighter entrance is for house shows at "The World's Most Famous Arena." Whenever WWE comes to town, fans start lining up early outside the entrance, hoping they'll catch a glimpse of their favorite wrestler.
At Saturday's show, fans got more than they could have ever imagined, with some of the biggest names in the sport stopping to say hello. Some WWE Superstars were more fan-friendly than others, with a few literally making it a point to snap a pic with everyone that asked for one. Wyatt, Lashley, Rawley and Hardy, in particular, did a great job pleasing the fans.
As for the show itself, the WWE SummerSlam Heatwave tour had all the magic and excitement of a live pay-per-view. Not only did the event mark the Madison Square Garden debut of "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey, but the Undertaker and Roman Reigns also showed up to compete. Elsewhere on the card, Dolph Ziggler successfully defended his Intercontinental Championship against Seth Rollins and Finn Balor. The WWE announced that another live house show will be held at "The Garden" in December, as part of a winter holiday tour.
