It’s time to rumble in Sacramento.

World Wrestling Entertainment is bringing its unique brand of professional wrestling back to Golden 1 Center this summer. Saturday Night’s Main Event will take over the downtown arena on July 9, the arena announced Monday.

The non-televised Smackdown-branded show kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and will feature a full roster of WWE superstars, including Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, new Smackdown Women’s Champion and former MMA star Ronda Rousey, New Day’s Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods, Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Naomi, Smackdown Tag Team Champions The Usos and more.

Also being advertised for the show is Drew McIntyre vs. Sami Zayn and an appearance by Intercontinental Champion Ricochet, whose high-flying, acrobatic moveset is sure to impress.

As always, match cards and wrestler lineups are subject to change.

This will be the first WWE show in Sacramento since Monday Night Raw laid the smackdown at Golden 1 Center in October.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and start at $20.
