It’s well known by now that John Cena is headed back to WWE.
The WWE Universe last saw the former WWE Champion lost Roman Reigns in a singles match at the No Mercy pay-per-view event in Los Angeles, CA at the Staples Center. He is not being advertised for the TLC pay-per-view in October. This is the next Raw-exclusive event after No Mercy. He’s not expected to work SmackDown's PPV, Hell in a Cell, next month either.
As noted, Cena is now being advertised for Survivor Series in November. WWE recently updated the advertisements for the event as for months now the former WWE Champion was not expected to work the event.
It’s well known by now that there have been rumors that Cena will be going back to the SmackDown Live brand and challenging Jinder Mahal for the WWE Title once back on TV. WWE could be going in a completely different direction. Cena could be facing The Undertaker at the event.
There have been rumors that the sports entertainment company is planning to have The Undertaker and Cena wrestle each other at Survivor Series. It looked like that WWE has been able to get a confirmation from Taker that he would return to the squared circle for another match. For the legend to face the former WWE Champion, it just makes all of the sense in the world to make this match happen.
By looking back on WWE television, the sports entertainment company has been dropping hints that Taker would be returning. If you recall, Cena mentioned Taker’s name during his promo with Reigns a few weeks ago on Raw by calling him "an old man, with a busted hip.” Keep in mind that it’s always possible that WWE books another match between Reigns and Cena at the event. Time will tell how all of this shakes out.
However, we now know his opponent at the event. According to CageSide Seats, Cena could be headed for a short program with Bray Wyatt, which would lead to a match at Survivor Series.
Keep in mind that fans may not be happy with this decision due to the fact that WWE has booked Wyatt in a way where they have him talk a bunch of trash yet he doesn’t back it up in his matches and often lose. If you recall, WWE had a big program between Cena and Wyatt at WrestleMania 30 in 2014 with Cena going over in the match.
The Survivor Series pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, November 19, 2017, in Houston, Texas at the Toyota Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Both Raw and SmackDown brands will be featured. As of this writing, the sports entertainment company has yet to announce any matches officially.
