WWE News: An evening with John Cena announced for the first time in the UK in December
What's the story?
Platinum Events recently announced on their Facebook page that former WWE Champion John Cena will be part of an evening of entertainment in the UK for the first time in December.
In case you didn't know...
John Cena hasn't been seen on WWE TV since he lost to Roman Reigns back at No Mercy and isn't expected to return to the company until the buildup to WrestleMania 34 begins in 2018.
Cena is a free agent and could decide to switch back to SmackDown Live if he wanted to, but it seems that this latest announcement implies that Cena would need to be in the UK merely weeks before WWE's final pay-per-view of the year, Clash of Champions.
The heart of the matter
Platinum Events have announced that John Cena will be part of an evening where he will be answering questions from fans and meeting up to 200 of his supporters at the Fly DSA Arena in Sheffield on December 4th.
The company have teamed up with Rocco Buonvino who is famous for bringing stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino, Arnold Schwarzenegger and many others over to the UK over the past few decades, to bring the globally recognisable wrestler and movie star to British shores for this exclusive event.
Tickets for the event that ensure a meet and greet with the former 16-time World Champion are priced at £300 per person, whilst the least expensive tickets for the event are just £35.
The VIP tickets for the event include a meet and greet with Cena as well as a photo of the former WWE Champion. It also includes an exclusive poster, lanyard and pass as well as exclusive access to an auction of memorabilia.
Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday 27th October ahead of the exclusive event but the event's producers have stated that there are just 200 tickets available for the VIP package which includes a photo with the 'Face of WWE' as well as a meet and greet.
John Cena has never been this close to his fans in the UK and it seems that he is now coming to the end of his career, so this could be one of the last chances his fans across the pond have to meet Cena whilst he is still considered to be an active WWE star.
Whilst £300 does seem expensive, this is actually quite a standard amount to pay for VIP tickets to an event of this type.
