Despite his participation in a major WWE live event in Shangai, John Cena hasn’t been featured on WWE programming since defeating HHH at the Greatest Royal Rumble. His next match will take place at WWE Super Show-Down this Saturday in Australia. Cena is scheduled to team with Bobby Lashley for a tag match against Elias and Kevin Owens.
Regardless of the outcome, it was unclear if his appearance was another one-off or the beginning of a longer run. According to a new report from DirtySheets, Cena is expected to remain on WWE television through Survivor Series. That means he’s scheduled to be a part of SmackDown 1000, WWE’s Crown Jewel event, and the Survivor Series PPV.
John Cena has “Bumblebee,” the spin-off film of the Transformers franchise, coming out in December. There’s bound to be some heavy promotion of the film during Cena’s run on WWE television. He’s currently filming a couple of movies and participating in other projects, but it seems the sixteen-time WWE Champion has set aside some time this fall.
Unfortunately, any creative plans for Cena are being kept under wraps. As a free agent, it’s hard to predict what WWE officials are thinking for him. There are numerous feuds and matches the WWE Universe would be interested to see. At this point, John Cena has a lot of pull to say who he wants to work with, so the choice may be up to Cena himself.
One of the biggest flaws on Cena’s resume is a lackluster run as a tag team partner. The Raw and SmackDown tag team division could provide him with exciting matches, a lot of new talent to work with, and a new division to conquer. Most fans would appreciate him not taking away the spotlight and using his star power for something brand new.
