- 10 Superstars who can return to appear on Smackdown 1000.
9. John Cena
John Cena is the biggest star in WWE today. Apart from the Rock, no one associated with WWE has more mainstream attraction than John Cena. WWE has shown time and time again just how valuable John Cena is to them. Summerslam this year was the first time in 15 years that John Cena has missed the biggest party of the summer. We haven't seen him since he was squashed by Undertaker at Wrestlemania. However, Cena has been closing in on a return as he was last seen in a video on WWE's Youtube channel where he looked to be in phenomenal shape. A return at Smackdown 1000 would be perfect.
Cena made his debut on Smackdown against Kurt Angle. Answering an opening challenge from the Olympic Champion, Cena had an impressive showing in a losing effort. Cena's career went uphill from there as his 'Doctor of Thuganomic' persona was over as hell. Cena beat JBL to end his record title reign at Wrestlemania and became Smackdown's WWE Champion before being drafted to Raw. He has been on Raw ever since returning to Smackdown in 2016 again where he became a record 16 time WWE Champion beating AJ Styles at the Royal Rumble 2017. Cena's contribution to Smackdown is immeasurable and he deserves to be on the 1000th episode.
Cena's appearance would attract a lot of mainstream attention towards the program. He can even begin a program for his next feud or maybe even a rematch with The Undertaker who is also appearing on the show. No matter what he does, Cena's appearance will be a welcome addition to the landmark episode.
