The WWE is going through one of it's worst runs, in regards to TV ratings, in a very long time.
The company needs all of its stars to be available and performing in order to try and drag them out of this rut, but that isn't going to be happening, with John Cena taking the next two months off after Hell in a Cell.
Cena is expected to drop the United States championship at the Pay-Per-View on Sunday, and we may have just found out who will be feuding with on his return.

Cena vs Sheamus
Cena will be returning to the WWE after his time off on the company's annual post-Christmas tour. According to Wrestling Inc, his opponent on that date will be Sheamus.
"As noted, WWE United States Champion John Cena is scheduled to take time off after WWE Hell In a Cell and return on WWE's annual post-Christmas tour," WINC report started off as saying.
"He's advertised to defend against Sheamus on December 26th at Madison Square Garden in New York City."
Could this be a sign that Cena is going to feud with the Irishman upon his return to the company?
When Cena does ultimately drop the U.S Title at Hell in a Cell, he almost certainly won't be sticking around that low down the proverbial card, trying to win it back. Instead, Cena will go on to bigger and better things.
Sheamus Winning The Title?
Could this also mean that Sheamus will finally be cashing in his Money in the Bank contract and winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship?
It seems weird that Cena would face up against him under any other circumstances, i.e. facing a Sheamus without the title just seems a bit below him.
We'll just have to wait and see what goes down.
