It’s that time of year again — hundreds of thousands of passionate fans have flocked to San Diego to attend Comic-Con International, the largest comic book and popular arts convention on the planet. And WWE and its Superstars will run wild at SDCC 2012, with a host of scheduled appearances including WWE Champion CM Punk, World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus and Divas Champion Layla.
The madness begins Wednesday, July 12, and if you can’t make the trip out to the geek Promised Land, don’t fret — we’ve got you covered. WWE.com will be at the show to keep you up-to-the-minute on all the latest news coming out of the "con to end all cons" with continuing live coverage.
If you are able to attend the show, there are plenty of events for members of the WWE Universe to catch while in the 619. One absolute must is to stop by the MattyCollector.com booth #3029 to get your hands on a FREE SDCC 2012 exclusive WWE Rumblers figure of The Rock! Created just for the show, the figure comes decked out in a special T-shirt featuring the authentic San Diego Comic-Con logo.
