John Cena’s SummerSlam Plans Revealed

John Cena

Following the return to WWE television of John Cena, a new report has shed light on what the megastar might – or might not – be doing come SummerSlam.

For the first time ever, WWE’s biggest party of the summer takes place in July but the main event is already set as Brock Lesnar will face Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing Match for the Unified WWE Universal Championship.

At 2021’s SummerSlam Reigns was simply the Universal Champion and he held on to that title after dispatching John Cena in the main event.

John Cena returned to WWE screens for the first time since that match on the 27th of June edition of Raw in Laredo, Texas as he celebrated his 20th anniversary as a WWE Superstar. It was way back on the 27th of June 2002 edition of SmackDown that a young Cena introduced Kurt Angle and the world to his own brand of ruthless aggression.

Cena addressed his future on Raw and although he said he didn’t know when or where he did seem to confirm that he will indeed wrestle again. Many fans pointed to his interactions in recent weeks with WWE United States Champion Theory that a match between the two men could take place at SummerSlam but it now looks like that might not be the case.

Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that John Cena might not be on SummerSlam at all and is not currently scheduled for any WWE television for the foreseeable future. He also adds that a showdown between Cena and Theory could take place, but possibly not until WrestleMania 39 in early 2023.
