How John Cena WWE Raw Announcement Affected Ticket Sales WWE

Here’s how the announcement of John Cena’s return affected ticket sales for the June 27 edition of WWE Raw.

The 16-time World Champion will make a WWE appearance later this month, exactly 20 years after his official WWE debut in 20o2.

Per the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, ticket sales went up a fair amount following the Cena return announcement.

Acknowledging that a portion of the tickets shifted were purchased by scalpers, Dave Meltzer wrote:

“Cena is still the one proven major live ticket mover left. They announced on Raw on 6/6 that Cena would return on the 6/27 Raw in Laredo TX. Over the next six days, tickets for that show went from 3,726 to 5,080 and is now at 5,154. A lot of the purchases were by scalpers including an entire section, but they also moved a lot to the public in a short period of time.”

Cena last wrestled on WWE TV at SummerSlam 2022, unsuccessfully challenging for Roman Reigns’ Universal Title. The 16-time World Champ has teased a return to the ring to feud with US Champion Theory.
