I’d call that a rub. There are very few stars in the history of wrestling who have reached the level of John Cena. He has been the face of WWE in the modern era and helped lead the company into its most profitable era ever. Cena has mainly become an actor in recent years but does still wrestle occasionally, which might be the case again on the big stage later this year.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is hoping to have Cena wrestle at this year’s Summerslam on July 30. The plan would be for Cena to face current United States Champion Theory at the show, though the plans have not yet been finalized. Cena is scheduled to return to Monday Night Raw on June 27. He has not wrestled since last year’s Summerslam, where he lost to Roman Reigns.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that Cena should be doing and WWE seems to understand that. Have him return, hype up the crowd, and then put someone young over. Cena isn’t going to be a full time star again but he is such a legend that losing a match or two a year isn’t going to cause him any serious damage. It’s a good sign that WWE understands what they are doing and this could go a long way for Theory’s future.
What do you think of the idea? How would the match go? Let us know in the comments below.
