The WWE rolled into the UK mid-way through last week and put on events up and down the country for one of their most, if not their most passionate fanbase in the world.

In a matter of days, the company had scaled all of Great Britain before finally settling into the O2 Arena for Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live on Tuesday.

During their time over in the UK, though, they made sure to get in plenty of experiences that fans everywhere can be jealous of.

Ember Moon and The Revival stopped by The Bear Grylls Adventure at the NEC for a day of activity testing their physical and mental endurance.

Scott Dawson, Dash Wilder and Moon tested themselves in archery and an indoor assault course with Wilder coming out on top on the scoreboard.

As you can see from the tweet below, Bear Grylls himself was delighted with their appearance. Beyond what the superstars did, you can indoor skydive, break out of escape rooms, indoor climb and even swim with sharks!

After The Revival’s rotten luck in recent weeks, they must have seen the shark tank and wondered…

Elsewhere, big Tottenham fan Finn Balor visited the brand new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It’s a shame WWE’s pitstop in Madrid isn’t on June 1!

Perhaps most enviable of all, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Aleister Black were all able to pay a visit to the Game of Thrones exhibition in Belfast.

With the beloved series just one episode away from its conclusion, each superstar took their turn on the iron throne.

Sticking with Ireland, double champion Becky Lynch and SmackDown tag team champion Daniel Byran stopped by Blast Gym before WWE Dublin and spent some time with John Kavanagh.

Kavanagh is, of course, the longtime trainer of fighting superstar Conor McGregor. While there are constant rumours Notorious may one day step foot inside the WWE, for now, it’s The Man who had to come to his house.

With the WWE’s UK tour now winding down, the company switches focus to Money in the Bank this Sunday.

However, they will return to the UK in November where Raw will emanate from Glasgow and Manchester will play home to SmackDown.
