John Cena's WWE return from two-month sabbatical delayed

Published 25 Comments

Ever since John Cena lost his United States Championship title to Alberto Del Rio at Hell in a Cell on October 25, the WWE Universe has been waiting patiently for his return to the ring.

But, judging by reports today, it looks like those fans hoping to see the veteran Superstar return from his self-imposed sabbatical ASAP will have to wait that little bit longer.

Change of plans

That's after numerous publications, including NoDq.com, reported that Cena is no longer being advertised for a WWE event in Inglewood, California on December 19.

Very quickly after Cena departed for his two-month spell of absence, eagle-eyed WWE fans noted that he was being advertised for the Dec. 19 event. As such, his return on this date had become gospel amongst the WWE Universe.

Now, though, it appears that Cena's actual return will not come until one week later at WWE's December 26 event at Madison Square Garden.

It is unclear at this stage exactly why Cena's return to in-ring action has been pushed back by seven days. With the 15-time WWE champion currently filming an adventure series with Fox, perhaps schedule/filming issues have arisen on that project.

Considering the current injury crisis - and subsequent ratings drop off - in the WWE right now, it is becoming increasingly obvious that getting Cena back and in the thick of the action is a must.

And, whilst his removal from a house show won't affect his participation in WWE TV programming, taking part in the Cali show would have given Cena the chance to work out any rust that may have developed during his extended absence.
