John Cena is back in WWE for a run through SummerSlam and fans have a Summer of Cena before them. The 16x World Champion is a proven draw, but how much did it help ticket sales?

According to Wrestle Tix, Cena’s involvement has boosted ticket sales in a big way for some markets. Others, like the company’s Minneapolis show, didn’t see that much of a boost at only around 100 tickets, but each show has still seen a significant amount of tickets sold.

John Cena is slated to wrestle Roman Reigns at SummerSlam for the Universal Title. He will then get back into the movie making business as even more acting gigs are in the pipeline. It’s still significant that Cena is making this WWE return to help out the company that gave him his start.

You can check out the chart below thanks to Wrestle Tix. Those events will have Cena appear, but it isn’t noted if he will wrestle. Either way, it will still be great to have Cena there, even if nobody can see him.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
