A new report from F4Wonline.com has revealed that WWE is currently making main event changes to upcoming Live Event cards. The notable difference, is that singles matches involving John Cena, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, and Dean Ambrose have all been modified to tag matches.
The new main event for the Sept. 26 WWE live event at the IZOD Center in New Jersey pits both Cena and Ambrose against Orton and Rollins. Prior to these changes, Orton was slated to face Ambrose, and Rollins was supposed to take on Cena.
Following the emergency surgery of Roman Reigns on Sept. 20, and Ambrose’s return at “Night Of Champions” on Sept. 21, WWE began to question their creative plans moving forward into their Fall schedule. Reigns, who was being primed as the next top babyface, was set to continue his program with The Authority, likely leading to a match with Triple H in the near future. With Reigns out-of-action for the next several months, WWE’s creative team are weighing their current options in terms of where to go next.
This was clearly evident during the Sept. 22 edition of “Monday Night Raw.” As previously reported, Vince McMahon and writers were penning the script for the program as it was broadcasting on television with no clear goal for how they are planning to book the next Pay-Per-View.
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is not currently advertised or scheduled for any upcoming WWE events, including “Hell In A Cell’ on Oct. 26, although the card is always subject to change. The lack of Paul Heyman during the Sept. 22 “RAW” was due to the company’s unrest on whether or not they will be using Lesnar at the event. WWE is reportedly thinking of leaving Lesnar off the PPV card though, which leaves the company to decide soon whether or not they book one or two actual bouts in the cell.
Initially, it was understood that Rollins and Ambrose would be facing each other in one Hell in a Cell match, and many believed Lesnar would be defending his WWE title in one as well. With plans changing and creative weighing options, Orton vs. Cena may be the route the company goes.
Orton vs. Cena…for the 1,000,000,001 time. Yay. Fall season, right? Right.
