WWE Working on Plans to Host Their First-Ever Comic Con Style Convention

- WWE has been planning their own weekend-long convention, styled after the popular San Diego Comic Con. The plan is for the convention to be held over four days in the same city as a major pay-per-view event.

There is no timetable yet for the first event as WWE officials are still working on plans and reaching out to fans via surveys to gauge their interest.

The four-day event, likely from Thursday to Sunday, would be far more like a comic convention than WWE's current Axxess events with many different attractions. Early plans are to have a VIP ticket in the $100-$150 area as well as a general admission ticket. These tickets would be separate from the pay-per-view ticket.

Early markets under consideration for the first WWE convention are New York City, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Miami, San Antonio, New Orleans and Orlando.
