BANGOR - The WWE Summerslam Heatwave Tour visited the Cross Insurance Center Friday night. Fans of all ages lined up hours before the show with the hopes of meeting their wrestling idols.


Some WWE stars that headlined the show were Roman Reigns, Braun Stroman and Sasha Banks. Local fans were excited to see their wrestling idols.


"Everyone from an eight-year-old boy to someone like who is fourty three years old or older, we come to cheer or boo whoever we like," WWE fan Derek Bickford said.


"Yea, i'm really happy to have some of the really famous people come here to Bangor. I mean we have the concerts evey once in a while, but it's not that many times you can see live WWE wrestlers come here," fan Jordan Miranda said.
