Argos Leeds to host WWE Superstar Rusev meet and greet for fans

In a signature move sure to delight wrestling fans across Yorkshire and beyond, the WWE Superstar Rusev is visiting the Argos Leeds Headrow store this weekend in a special meet and greet event.

The meet and greet will take place between 3.30pm and 5pm on Saturday, November 9 with limited spaces available to fans who manage to collect a wristband from the store today to guarantee their place.

Weighing in at 304lbs, Rusev is a three-time WWE United States Champion. Known as the ‘Bulgarian Brute’, Rusev is a crowd favourite who was unbeaten for nearly a year following his debut year in WWE. The Superstar made a point to not just defeat his opponents, but “crush” them.

Rusev will be on hand to sign a range of Mattel Wrekkin’ Toys including the WWE Wrekkin’ Performance Centre Playset. The toy is inspired by the WWE training centre where Superstars workout and hone their skills.

The playset features three destructive areas including a backstage gym area, collapsible scaffolding, a breakaway sign, and collapsible ring. All Argos customers can benefit from 20 per cent off this and other selected WWE toys between now and Tuesday, November 12.

Attendees can post their selfies from the event on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ArgosWWE to be in with a chance to win a WWE toy bundle.

Andrew Hartley, toys buying manager at Argos, said: “WWE toys have always been a firm favourite at Argos. We’re thrilled to welcome Rusev to our Leeds Headrow store and give our customers the chance to meet one of the WWE’s biggest Superstars. Watch out Leeds…. the Bulgarian Brute is on his way.”
