Daniel Radcliffe shares photo of Harry Potter cast at WWE event in 2000

Monday March 28th, 2016

Before they stepped through platform nine and three-quarters and headed off to Hogwarts for the first time, members of the Harry Potter cast took in some muggle entertainment in the form of a WWE (then WWF) show in Sheffield, England.

Daniel Radcliffe posted a photo of himself and Matthew Lewis in the crowd at the event to Google Plus and told the story of a producer taking the pair along with Rupert Grint to the show just a few days before they began filming the smash hit movies.

Radcliffe calls the event "Insurrection" but it appears he had the show mixed up with the company’s other annual show in the United Kingdom, "Rebellion," which took place in Sheffield in 2000.

The youngsters saw a star-studded card featuring The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Kane and William Regal.
