In case you didn’t know...

John Terry is widely regarded as one of the greatest defenders of his generation. He presently captains Premier League club, Chelsea, besides having captained the England national team from August 2006 to February 2010, and later from March 2011 to February 2012.

Author’s Take

Not that the WWE is lacking any star-power, but I’d be lying if I said that it isn’t nice to have the occasional celebrity appear at WWE events.

As far as free publicity and brand promotion goes, both parties – the WWE and John Terry – benefit from his on-screen appearance at SmackDown Live nonetheless. The amount of press that this rumoured appearance will garner for WWE, particularly in the UK, would be What’s Best For Business!
