Would you like to lunch with The Usos on the "Smackdown" set?

Or maybe you want to attend a NASCAR race with World Wrestling Entertainment superstar John Cena?

In what's being billed as the largest online auction ever, these experiences among others can be had with the proceeds going toward Superstorm Sandy relief in New York and New Jersey.

The auction, which began Monday, runs through April 9.

However certain packages -- such as taking a limo with wrestler "The Miz" to an April 4 party at Cipriani Wall St. where sportscaster Joe Buck will conduct a live auction -- close earlier.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg will be the special guest at that event, co-hosted by WWE CEO Vince McMahon and Sean "Diddy" Combs.

"Superstars for Sandy Relief, and the subsequent funds raised, will make a huge difference in the lives of New Yorkers still recovering from Hurricane Sandy," Bloomberg said in a statement that thanked the WWE.

Some of the other adventures up for auction involve Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Mark Cuban, Carrie Underwood, Charlie Sheen, Adrian Grenier, Michael J. Fox and Sting. Proceeds will go to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
