John Cena added to WWE Auckland line-up

It turns out New Zealanders can see him.

John Cena will be part of the line-up of WWE Superstars coming to Auckland’s Vector Arena on Wednesday, August 10.

Since news of WWE’s return to New Zealand first broke, many fans have been clamouring for a Cena appearance.

As confirmed earlier today by Cena himself, the 15-time world champ will be in action this August.


“After 5 long years I’m excited to announce that I’m coming BACK downunder this August with WWE LIVE, and you won’t believe what I have planned!” Cena wrote. “See you soon New Zealand!”

Cena defended the WWE Championship against R-Truth in the main event of WWE’s last live event in New Zealand in July 2011.

In addition to John Cena, several other WWE Superstars have been announced for WWE Live this August. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns, Sheamus, Kevin Owens, WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day, WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte, and Sasha Banks are all scheduled to appear.

WWE Live tickets are available from Ticketmaster.
