John Cena Says London Deserves to Host WrestleMania 31

WWE has a rabid following in the United Kingdom, and that has been proven during their European tour. World Heavyweight Champion John Cena has been so impressed, in fact, that he believes London, England is deserving of the company's biggest event. 

According to Daniel Pena of WrestlingInc.com, Cena addressed the crowd following a WWE Live event at O2 Arena in London. Cena praised the fans for their support and then suggested that WWE should hold WrestleMania XXXI in London.

WrestleMania XXX is already set to take place in New Orleans in April, but WWE has yet to announce its intentions for 2015. There is constant talk within the WWE Universe about WWE potentially holding a pay-per-view in Great Britain, but WrestleMania would certainly take the cake.

WWE is no stranger to staging pay-per-view events in England as UK-exclusive events like Rebellion and Insurrextion took place from 1999 through 2003. More famously, SummerSlam was hosted by Wembley Stadium in 1992, and the main event saw The British Bulldog beat brother-in-law Bret "Hitman" Hart for the Intercontinental Championship.

Cena made reference to Wembley Stadium in his promo, and there is no question that it would fit in with the WWE's current WrestleMania trend. WWE has exclusively looked toward large stadiums for WrestleMania in recent years, and Wembley Stadium has a capacity of 90,000.

Some concessions would have to be made by American fans as it would take a long plane trip to attend the event, and those staying at home to watch it would have to watch it during the day rather than at night, but there is no doubt that it would help bolster WWE's already impressive international appeal.
