With WWE Raw in Boston Monday Night, and Smackdown in Manchester on Tuesday, WWE made one more stop in New England on Wednesday night.
At Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox fans celebrated “WWE Night.”
Kofi Kingston, who attended Boston College and began wrestling in local promotions in the New England area, was the celebrity guest. He threw out the ceremonious first pitch.
Kofi strutted onto the field from the Red Sox dugout and clapped and danced as he made his way to the pitchers mound just after 7:00 p.m. With most of the capacity crowd already in their seats, Kofi launched a fastball that he probably wished he could take back. The pitch bounced before the catcher, who could not come up with it cleanly and then had to chase it down behind him.
Kofi laughed it off in typical fashion and he received a supportive applause from the Fenway faithful before walking back into the Red Sox dugout.
Fans in attendance who purchased their WWE Night ticket directly from the Red Sox promotional website were automatically given a bobblehead of Red Sox shortstop Dustin Pedroia in which he is standing in a ring adorned with a WWE Heavyweight Championship belt.
Flyers were available that showcased the WWE Live Supershow scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 21 at 7:00 p.m. at TD Garden in Boston. This is fresh off of the announcement WWE made to fans in attendance at Monday Night Raw this week that a dual branded Supershow will be taking place in Boston on the night that fans were expecting the TLC pay-per-view.
The Boston Red Sox ultimately won their game against the visiting Texas Rangers 4-2 for their ninth consecutive victory.
