Ford Arena will be hopping with thousands of pro wrestling fans as the WWE returns to Beaumont on Saturday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the event are on sale at the Ford Park box office and all Ticketmaster locations, and the card looks spectacular.
Headlining the main event will be WWE champion John Cena and Sheamus teaming up to face “The World’s Strongest Man” and Silsbee native Mark Henry and Ryback.
