WWE Live To Return To The BJC In September

Update, 8:16 p.m., Wednesday: John Cena, Demon Kane, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and more will be coming to State College for the WWE event on Sept. 7, event director Bernie Punt announced tonight.

Less than a year after coming to State College, the WWE will be back at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sept. 7 for all you “wrestling” fans out there.

The WWE last visited the Bryce Jordan Center on Jan. 24 for a similar WWE Live show. The show, which featured John Cena, Randy Orton, and everyone’s favorite Lucha Libre wrestler Rey Mysterio, was used as a leapboard into the Royal Rumble, setting up storylines for one of the WWE’s main events. This time, the fight won’t precede one of the WWE’s marquee events, which may keep the star power away.

With this September’s event taking place in the middle of a lull in the WWE schedule, fans can expect to see a stripped down version of what they may see on television. That means no crazy pyrotechnics or an over the top stage, but there will still be good ol’ fashioned manufactured drama. I mean, who doesn’t love a classic WWE faked death or another faked death?

Tickets go on sale June 21, and prices are to be determined. If you’re lucky enough, you can even pay to sit ringside with the WWE’s “VIP Experience,” but only if you’re not afraid of folding chairs.
