WWE Live! Returning To The Bryce Jordan Center

The exciting action of WWE will again take over the Bryce Jordan Center. Venue management announced today that WWE Live! will slam back to the BJC on Sunday, September 25 at 1 p.m. with doors opening at noon.

The live show will feature a number of well-known WWE Superstars, including Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, The Miz, WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day, Kevin Owens, Cesaro, Kalisto, The Usos, WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and others. The last time the event was in State College, John Cena won a steel cage match to hold onto his WWE United States Champion title. I know what you’re all thinking…

Tickets go on sale on Thursday, June 30 at 10 a.m. while students will have the opportunity to take advantage of a pre-sale on Wednesday, June 29, also at 10 a.m. Tickets start at $15 and are also available for $25, $35, $55, $70, and $100. Students can also score a $20 discount on select tickets courtesy of UPAC so long as they have a valid Penn State ID. There are group discounts available as well, and tickets can be purchased at the BJC box office, Eisenhower Auditorium, the Downtown Theatre, online at, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

The WWE Live announcement is the fourth in the last week for the BJC. Venue management announced last week Kanye West will make a stop in Happy Valley as part of his Saint Pablo tour on September 30 and Theresa Caputo will “read” people with a live show on October 3. Just yesterday, the BJC announced that truTV’s “Impractical Jokers” will perform on October 9, so it’s certainly shaping up to be a busy fall full of entertainment.
