John Cena's replacement for the Crown Jewel event has been reportedly decided by WWE

John Cena.

WWE Crown Jewel is less than a week away, and there's still a mass amount of uncertainty surrounding the show.

It was only confirmed this past Thursday that it would take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia after the company pulled all advertising following the alleged murder of a U.S.-based journalist by Saudi Government officials.

But after lots of debate and discussion, the decision was made by Vince McMahon and other executives for the show to continue, much to the discontent of some.

It will be an unpopular decision for some, with the Wrestling Observer revealing a few weeks ago that some of the locker room were uncomfortable with performing in the country after recent revelations.

One man who has made the big decision to not travel to the Middle East is possibly the biggest name in the whole company - John Cena.

It's well-documented by now that Cena has decided to stay away from the event, presumably to protect his image when it comes to his acting career.

Cena was set to take part in the first-ever WWE World Cup, which includes seven other superstars in a knockout tournament to determine the 'best in the world'.

Ignore the fact that the company clearly doesn't understand what a World Cup is meant to be, losing the 16-time world champion is a massive loss to the event, and the Saudi's were probably willing to pay big money for his attendance.

It means there's a spare space going in the World Cup though, and WrestleVotes have revealed who they have heard will be taking his place.

Despite battling with a supposed separated shoulder, Bobby Lashley is the man WWE are set to place the leader of the Cenation with.

Bobby Lashley is set to be John Cena's replacement at the WWE World Cup in Saudi Arabia.

Now he's not as big of a name as Cena obviously, but after a quiet few months, his partnership with Lio Rush has seen him undergo a revival of sorts.

Some fans would rather see Dean Ambrose, Drew McIntyre or Finn Balor there, but it looks like we will be seeing the Dominator in action instead.
