John Cena, the WWE Superstar, will be at the Chicago Comic Con in August.

According to a press release, Cena, Batista, WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino, and Paige will be at the convention between Aug. 21 - 23 in Rosemont, Ill.

“Coming back to Chicago is a great thrill for me,” Cena said in the release. “The fans here have always been good to me, and I really enjoy all my Wizard World appearances.” 

“It is so great to meet not only the WWE Universe, but also fans of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy,” Batista (Dave Bautista) adds. “I'm really excited to be joining my co-stars Karen Gillan and Michael Rooker at Wizard World for our Guardians of the Galaxy panel just weeks after the US debut.”

There’s no word if CM Punk, who essentially left the promotion, will be at the event.

Cena will be facing Bray Wyatt at “WWE Payback” on Sunday, June 1.
