John Cena is currently enjoying a hard earned break away from the WWE limelight in the form of a two-month sabbatical.
But that doesn't mean the organization has stopped thinking about how to make the most of his return when it comes.
And it looks like the WWE's powers that be have already changed their original plans for Cena's December 26th comeback event at Madison Square Garden.

As we noted a few weeks back, the veteran Superstar was all set to go up against Sheamus at the MSG event to mark his return to in-ring action.
Now, though, as reported by Wrestling Inc., the Celtic Warrior has been replaced on the card by the man who sent Cena off into his break in defeat, Alberto Del Rio.
The match between Cena and Del Rio will see the former get his chance to win back the U.S. title that was taken away from him by the returning Mexican Superstar at Hell in a Cell.
When the WWE had Sheamus going up against Cena, there was speculation that the two could be embarking on a feud that would run into the new year and see Sheamus handed a bigger role on the main roster.
However, it now looks like his hopes have been dashed by the stunning return of Del Rio.
But, with the WWE looking to cash in on the Latino audience's interest in Alberto at a time when ratings are dropping, you can't exactly blame them for getting he and Cena back in the ring as soon as possible.
If Cena can make a heroic return and reclaim the title on December 26th, it will add yet another memorable moment to WWE's illustrious history at Madison Square Garden.
