WWE Smackdown comes back to Albany

May 31, 2008

Albany -- Some of wrestling's most loyal fans can be found right here in Southwest Georgia. Several waited in line for hours to get an up close view of the Smackdown.

Fans waited in line at the Albany Civic Center Saturday morning to get their hands on tickets to W.W.E.'s big event.

Some of those fans even camped out overnight just to make sure they got front row ringside seats. And for two of these fans, this wasn't the first time.

"The weather wasn't that bad this time. I've been out here when it's raining, snowing, sleet, whatever. I've got my tent," said Ryan Ortiz.

"These gentlemen are on the road nearly 300 days a year away from their families. And it's always a thrill to seem them entertain our families," said Matthew Eubanks.

Those W.W.E. wrestlers will be in Albany on July 5th. You can get your tickets at the Civic Center or at any Ticketmaster location.
