There may be a huge disappointment awaiting WWE fans at the Survivor Series as superstar John Cena is unlikely to be a part of the pay-per-view.
Although Cena was originally scheduled to make an appearance at the event which will be held at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 20 November, the official website of the WWE is not advertising his presence in the Survivor Series anymore.
The 15-time WWE world champion is on a brief hiatus at present as he is busy hosting the 2nd season of FOX network’s reality TV show American Grit. In recent times, John Cena seems to have cut down on his WWE appearances and a proof of this is the fact that he has not even wrestled 50 matches this year.
The Air Canada Centre continues to advertise Cena’s appearance at the Survivor Series on its official website but things may have to be altered a bit, considering the superstar's deemed unavailability for the high-profile event.
John Cena was last seen in action at Smackdown’s exclusive pay-per-view, No Mercy, which was held at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. He was involved in a triple threat match for the WWE World Championship alongside reigning champion AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose, which Styles won by pinning Cena.
Considering that he is the biggest superstar on the Smackdown roster, the Cenation Leader would have surely been part of the brand’s men’s tag team for the Survivor Series. But if he is not going to be present at the event, general manager Daniel Bryan may have a tough task at hand in terms of finding a replacement for him.
