The world of wrestling will collide with rock and metal music at this year’s Download Festival.
Stars from WWE are to entertain music fans with the best of their high-flying and choke-slamming ability in a full-scale ring at Donington Park in Leicestershire.
Wrestlers including Bobby Roode, Aleister Black, Tye Dillinger and Kassius Ohno will appear inside the ropes while bands such as System Of A Down, Biffy Clyro and Aerosmith perform on the main stage.
Festival promoter Dave Bradley said: “Having WWE NXT at Download is like seeing what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object - you just know sparks are going to fly.
“Wrestling and rock music go hand-in-hand and if last year is anything to go by, this exclusive festival experience is only going to be bigger and better for round two.”
:: The Download Festival will take place from June 9 to 11.
