Wrestling Travel take British WWE fans on Road to WrestleMania
British fans are renowned for bringing a special atmosphere to WWE events and last night's Royal Rumble was no different.
The crowd at the Minute Maid Park stadium in Houston, Texas went wild when legendary superstar Edge returned to action.
And dedicated supporters from these shores certainly made their voices heard when Scotland's Drew McIntyre won the main event.
Many made the trip thanks to Wrestling Travel- a trailblazing company and the first of its kind in the UK, which is now making a global impact.
Wrestling Travel creates bespoke packages to WWE's biggest shows, including the annual extravaganzas WrestleMania and SummerSlam.
The company also offers dream trips to All Elite Wrestling pay-per-views and New Japan Pro Wrestling's yearly supershow, Wrestle Kingdom.
Mirror WWE has now teamed up with Wrestling Travel to boost our coverage of sports entertainment and bring you even more world exclusives.
The business is the brainchild of grappling superfan and Tranmere Rovers Associate Director, Lee McAteer, a travel industry expert and founder of the acclaimed AmeriCamp.
Wrestling Travel organises everything from flights, transfers and hotels to event tickets, but that's only half of the experience it provides.
Lee said: "Wrestling Travel is for the fans, by the fans, plus you just never know will show up and be on a WT trip travelling with us.
"At Wrestle Kingdom in January we had top wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer host a Q&A and for our Wrestling Travel WrestleManiaTravel Packages in Tampa we will have a whole host of surprise guests, who will be showing up across the week.
"In fact our VIPs may even end up watching the shows with some of them too!
"What WT does is offer a service in which all you have to do is turn up and we take care of the rest.
"At the last WrestleMania in New York we were staying in the same hotel as The Undertaker and NWA Champion Nick Aldis, so you are very much immersed in the Road to WrestleMania with Wrestling Travel."
Lee is the man behind Invasion Camp Group, a mix of summer camp, gap year and tour companies, including Camp Thailand, Camp Bali, AmeriCamp Canada and Camp.co.uk.
Wrestling Travel, which is a member of ABTA and ATOL through his parent company Invasion, aims to remove the stress and hassle around a trip to see wrestling superstars in action.
Its stunning package for WrestleMania 36 in Florida this April includes tickets for the WWE Hall of Fame, SmackDown, NXT TakeOver, WrestleMania itself and Raw.
Wrestling Travel has also become a major player behind the scenes in the industry.
The company is an official sponsor of America's Impact Wrestling, Liverpool's TNT Wrestling and an official travel partner of London's Progress Wrestling.
It sponsored Conrad Thompson's groundbreaking fan convention StarrCast and has worked with Cody Rhodes to take fans to AEW shows in America.
Lee's team lend their expertise to help facilitate as a sponsor the largest European wrestling convention, For The Love of Wrestling, with Andy Kleek at Monopoly Events.
And they have set up a ticketing platform, WT Live, as part of their commitment to support British wrestling and our thriving independent scene.
Wrestling Travel has also forged a relationship with Jeff Jarrett, which even led to the WWE Hall of Famer becoming an honorary fan of Tranmere Rovers, where Wirral-born businessman Lee is an associate director.
He said: "Jeff came down to Prenton Park and played football with the kids in the Tranmere Rovers Recreation Centre, before taking some penalties on the pitch!
"It was a really special moment for the club and I was so thankful to Jeff for coming down. He keeps a look out for the scores and where we are in the league."
Earlier this month, Wrestling Travel flew fans out to Tokyo to see the likes of Chris Jericho, Will Ospreay and Kazuchika Okada in action for NJPW.
Staying close to the iconic Tokyo Dome, guests toured sights including Mount Fuji, ate at the legendary Ribera Steakhouse, met NJPW talents, and had the chance to quiz Meltzer at the famous Toudoukan Wrestling Shop.
Wrestling Travel's Wrestle Kingdom 15 Travel Package for next January is on sale now and people can secure their places for just £99 / $150 per person.
Fans can also secure their place for WrestleMania 36 in Tampa, Florida this April.
As we're 70 days away from the Showcase of the Immortals, you can still get your Wrestling Travel WrestleManiaTravel Package.
You can choose to pay upfront, or split the payment, with the first half paid now, and the second half paid off by the end of February.
