Updated Lineup Of Pro-Wrestling-Related Events Set For San Diego Comic-Con

This year's San Diego Comic-Con will have an abundance of pro-wrestling-related events for any fans that are attending the convention. SD Comic-Con, first originating in 1970, is a comic book and multi-genre entertainment convention and nonprofit event.

The 2019 convention had 130,000 people reportedly in attendance. When it returned in November 2021 after over two years of hiatus due to COVID-19, the venue hosted a smaller 40 – 60,000 people to keep cautionary measures in place. This year's event will return to the San Diego Convention Center, but there will still be some noticeable adjustments in an attempt to keep fans safe from COVID-19 and related variants.

Throughout the weekend, those in attendance will have the opportunity to interact with stars from both WWE and AEW. Whether it be at a meet & greet or, more commonly, watching and asking questions at an in-person panel, fans will witness in person CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Cody Rhodes, and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, the latter of which will be in attendance to promote DC's upcoming "Black Adam" film.

So if you're one of the lucky superfans heading to San Diego Comic-Con, check out some of the following wrestling events:
