WWE week always brings the heat, and this time the mania was lifted to a whole new level when SummerSlam brought its annual event to the shiny new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Shortly before the madness hit the ring, the stars slammed into Circa Resort & Casino to fuel their muscles with some fun (and food).
WWE royalty, Stephanie McMahon, and mother Linda McMahon, were spotted catching up at Circa’s top-notch steakhouse, Barry’s Downtown Prime. The hot spot has recently been at the top of the list in terms of restaurant celebrity sightings, and that lends itself not only to the decadent menu options, but also to its classy ambiance, and old school hospitality. Stephanie and Linda relaxed in one of the dining room’s private booths, where they were reportedly served course after course, courtesy of the chef – a glance at the menu wasn’t even necessary!
After dinner, the power duo were whisked into a famous tour by co-owner/chef Barry S. Dakake. The restaurant namesake was happy to not only take care of two strong business women, but to reveal the special place where all the magic happens: the kitchen.
Stephanie and Linda set the tone for the week, as numerous top stars continuously stopped by Circa and dined at Barry’s Downtown Prime. The staff served WWE legends such as Bill Goldberg, who was spotted feasting with friends and family, including one of MMA’s greatest, Frank Mir. After their coveted tour with Chef Barry, they thanked him just as fighters do – by roughing him up – all in the spirit of WWE week. It didn’t end there, as Goldberg then spotted some desserts and started eating them with Frank Mir with Mojo Rawley photo bombing the duo. The theory rings true that all the action happens in the kitchen – literally.
Later in the evening, Goldberg’s SummerSlam rival, Bobby Lashley, was spotted dining with his family (and sneaking carrot cake) at Barry’s Downtown Prime. The carrot cake served him well, as he ended up retaining his sought-after title as WWE Champion.
Next, the female stars of WWE took Circa by storm. Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke stopped by and were also joined by WWE Superstars Sonya Deville and Liv Morgan. Dana was also in the company of her pro-boxer fiancé, Ulysses Diaz. All of these WWE stars are known to hit up their go-to guy in Vegas, Richard Wilk, who works as an executive at Circa Resort & Casino, and has developed quite the VIP playground.
Actor Dean Muhtadi, formerly known as Mojo Rawley from WWE, celebrated his recent movie release, Snake Eyes, by joining his fellow wrestlers and photo bombing the photos in the kitchen after dinner at Barry’s.
As WWE week comes to an end, one thing is for certain…the WWE Superstars met their match at Circa Resort & Casino.
