The face that runs the place for almost a decade now, John Cena has been missing from television ever since his triple threat match against AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose at No Mercy. He is on time off to shoot for his new reality TV series, American Grit. It is worth mentioning that Cena has been getting a lot of Hollywood offers, there have been reports that he might soon be cast as a Marvel superhero too!
However, Cena firmly says that although he works a lighter schedule than before, his first commitment is and will always be the WWE. This means that we may see him back in action as early as the next big pay per view, Survivor Series. He is expected to represent team SmackDown Live in the traditional elimination match, against RAW. That would be great for bragging rights for SmackDown Live.
Speaking about Cena, he is expected to be at Toronto, for Survivor Series. After his return, he is set to go behind AJ Style’s WWE World Championship, for the 16th time. With Undertaker’s health and shape in the air at the moment, it appears that the plan B for Cena is to capture the WWE title for the 16th time at WrestleMania and equal Ric Flair’s record. That means, he would be involved in a program with Styles after his full-fledged return to the ring in January.
WWE plans to have the biggest Survivor Series, with many people already making a beeline for Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar. Added to that, the 5 best superstars from RAW and SmackDown Live would compete in the traditional survivor series elimination match. WWE RAW’s ratings have received a huge boost after Goldberg’s return.
With Lesnar expected for next week’s RAW, SmackDown Live would also want to make the best of their marquee card, Cena as and when he returns. He is not expected to be out of the title picture any time soon and we hope he gives us five start matches like most of his recent ones!
