It was announced today by WWE that John Cena has been added to WWE’s next trip to Madison Square Garden in New York City. I guess that answers the question about if Cena will appear for WWE after SummerSlam because this show is three weeks after SummerSlam takes place.
Here’s the announcement from WWE.
John Cena to return to Madison Square Garden for Friday Night SmackDown on Sept. 10
You can see 16-time World Champion John Cena when the blue brand returns to The World’s Most Famous Arena on Friday, Sept. 10!
John Cena will be on hand when the top stars of SmackDown and Raw compete in a Supershow at Madison Square Garden.
Don’t miss your opportunity to be part of the action when WWE makes its highly anticipated return to New York City for Friday Night SmackDown, broadcasting live Friday, Sept. 10, on FOX at 8/7 C. The epic event will also feature Universal Champion Roman Reigns, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos, Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews, Edge, Sasha Banks, Seth Rollins, Big E, Kevin Owens and more.
Tickets are available now for this incredible event via Ticketmaster.
TJR Thoughts: What we don’t know right now is if the Raw superstars will be there just for the live crowd or if they will appear on Smackdown that night too. I think this is clearly a case of WWE feeling like the addition of Cena should help them sell out MSG or come close to doing so. They have less than two months to do it.
