Dublin: 8 °C Saturday 29 February, 2020

A fan was spotted in a Mayo GAA jersey losing it at WWE Summerslam last night

Meanwhile, Wicklow wrestler Finn Bálor as he became the first ever WWE Universal champion.


ONE OF THE WWE’s biggest events of the year took place last night in the Barclays Center in New York — and it was a banner night for the Irish.

Summerslam 2016 was dominated by Wicklow wrestler Finn Bálor as he became the first ever WWE Universal champion.

Not only that, but there was a fan spotted in a Mayo GAA jersey losing it in the crowd

They had won their GAA Football semi earlier in the day, and the session was still on


What a day it must have been for him

Back in Ireland, the Woolshed pub in Dublin held a special event for SummerSlam, and there were scenes when Bálor won


Over in New York, someone had given the pub a special shoutout too

Serious craic was had both sides of the Atlantic, no doubt.
