WWE star Rusev to visit Argos store in Leeds

Published on: 7th November 2019

WWE Superstar Rusev will be visiting the Argos Leeds Headrow store on Saturday 9th November to meet customers.

The meet and greet will take place between 15:30pm and 17:00pm. As spaces at the event are limited, fans will need to collect a wristband from the store from today to guarantee their place.

Weighing in at 304lbs, Rusev is a three-time WWE United States Champion. Known as the “Bulgarian Brute” Rusev is a crowd favourite who was unbeaten for nearly a year following his debut year in WWE. The Superstar made a point to not just defeat his opponents, but “crush” them.

At the event, Rusev will be on hand to sign a range of Mattel Wrekkin’ Toys including the WWE Wrekkin’ Performance Centre Playset. The toy is inspired by the WWE training centre where Superstars work out and hone their skills. The play set features three destructive areas including a backstage gym area, collapsible scaffolding, a breakaway sign, and collapsible ring. All Argos customers can benefit from 20% off this and other selected WWE toys until Tuesday 12th November, by using the discount code TOYS20.

Attendees can post pictures from the event on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ArgosWWE to be in with a chance of winning a WWE toy bundle.

Andrew Hartley, Toys buying manager at Argos, said: “WWE toys have always been a firm favourite at Argos. We’re thrilled to welcome Rusev to our Leeds Headrow store and give our customers the chance to meet one of the WWE’s biggest Superstars. Watch out Leeds…. the Bulgarian Brute is on his way!”
