John Cena's schedule with WWE is becoming less and less packed as years go by, and according to Dave Meltzer, we could only see him one more time before 2017.

Despite still being one of WWE's biggest draws in terms of ticket sales and merchandise, Cena's on-screen role has diminished over the last few years.

He's gone from the main event and challenging for the WWE Championship, to being the United States Champions, to being involved in mid-card feuds.

Having said that, he did return to the title picture in the last few months, going up against AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose on SmackDown LIVE, but after falling short in the triple threat match at No Mercy, it now looks like Cena will drop out of that rivalry.

In fact, Cena will only appear on WWE TV one more time before January 2017, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Meltzer is claiming that Cena will only appear for the traditional Survivor Series elimination match, which will see five SmackDown LIVE superstars go up against five Monday Night Raw superstars.

He said: “John Cena is listed for Survivor Series, which surprises me. But that’s the only listing he’s got until the first of the year. He’s gone filming that American Grit show right now.”

As of writing this article, Cena isn't advertised for any SmackDown LIVE episodes until Survivor Series, which means he could turn up on the night as a possible surprise inclusion.

The reason behind Cena's absence is the second season of his TV show 'American Grit'. He will be filming that up until late 2016, and it's believed he will then return to WWE in early 2017.

Upon his return, Cena is expected to renew his feud with Styles, with the two battling it out for the WWE Championship heading into WrestleMania season.
