Bengaluru, February 15: WWE hosts multiple live events at the Madison Square Garden arena in New York every year and as it is a special venue, the fans always get to see huge matches, here.

Due to growing production costs while hosting televised shows, many Raw, Smackdown and even PPV events have been withdrawn but that does not stop the company from hosting non-televised shows.

Another such MSG special house show has been announced in the arena en route to the biggest event of the year. This will be hosted during the Wrestlemania live tour and to sell out the arena, an interesting match was confirmed via the venues promo, but WWE is yet to confirm the news.

John Cena is set to perform on the show alongside his girlfriend, Nikki Bella in a mixed tag team match against the team of Elias and Bayley from WWE Raw in the event that is expected to take place on March 16th.

This is the first-time ever that John Cena and Nikki Bella will team up since their Wrestlemania 33 match against The Miz and Maryse. Earlier, the franchise player was expected to compete in a singles match against Elias. Later, this interesting contest was inserted into the match card.

It is to be noted that Nikki Bella is currently not part of the active roster. She is out of the storyline context ever since last year's Wrestlemania season due to the career-threatening neck injury. Now that her name is being advertised in a live event, it means that she will return on either Raw or Smackdown.

Earlier, the elder Bella stated on Total Divas that she was eyeing a comeback in 2018. That happened at the Royal Rumble match alongside her twin sister, Brie Bella. However, that is considered to be a one-off appearance for the former Divas Champion who is now expected to return to work during the Wrestlemania season.

It will be interesting to see how the creative team uses her in a storyline perspective. On the other hand, John Cena is involved in a mini-feud with Elias. If this match at Madison Square Garden is any indication then he is likely to continue this rivalry with the young superstar.
