In case you are wondering what’s in store for you when you step up, see some exciting entertainment you don’t want to miss this weekend:
WWE Royal Rumble
Growing up, wrestling was a big thing in my area. The Undertaker, Shawn Micheal and Stone Cold Steve Austin were the big names then. Whenever we saw them on television, we would wait and marvel at how they could punch, jump and lift their opponent and then go and practice those moves. Those were the good old days.
Now, wrestling fans can gear up for another thrilling WWE event, the Royal Rumble. The Royal Rumble event is one of the most eagerly-anticipated events in wrestling history and is based on the classic Battle Royal match in which 30 wrestlers (starting with two in-ring, and with a new entrant every 90 seconds) aim at eliminating their competitors by tossing them over the top rope, with both feet touching the floor. This year, fans will see Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rey Mysterio, Sheamus, and many more compete at this historical event scheduled for Sunday, January 30 2022.
Other matchups to look out for at this year’s royal rumble event include the WWE Championship match between new titleholder Brock Lesnar and former champion Bobby Lashley and the husband-and-wife pairings of Edge & Beth Phoenix and The Miz & Maryse.
Catch the WWE Royal Rumble live on SuperSport Variety 3, SuperSport Maximo 2 and WWE Channel 128 from 1:00 am.
The Gilded Age
If you love historical movies or series, then you definitely would love The Gilded Age. The American Gilded Age was a time of immense economic change, of great conflict between the old ways and brand-new systems, and of huge fortunes made and lost. This period series revolves around the life of young Marian Brook who moves from rural Pennsylvania to New York City after the death of her father to live with her thoroughly old money aunts Agnes van Rhijn and Ada Brook.
To prove her loyalty, Marian inadvertently becomes enmeshed in a social war between one of her aunts, a scion of the old money set, and her stupendously rich neighbours, a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife, George and Bertha Russell. Exposed to a world on the brink of the modern age, will Marian follow the established rules of society, or forge her path?
