Friday night on SmackDown sees WWE finally return to weekly shows in front of live crowds for the first time since March 2020 and according to various sources, including the ever-reliable WrestleVotes, suggest that WWE has some ‘cool and exciting’ surprises planned.
Could one of these surprises be the return of John Cena?
Rumours have long abounded that Cena would be returning to WWE in time for a match with Roman Reigns at SummerSlam and a report from Fightful Select claims WWE sources have confirmed that Cena will return by July 23rd at the latest.
The stars do seem to align for a Cena return this weekend. Quite apart from WWE’s obvious desire to make a massive splash, Cena seemingly has a gap in his schedule with filming wrapping up on his Peacemaker series just a few days ago and his latest film, Suicide Squad, hitting cinemas on July 30th (In which he originates the Peacemaker character).
As well as SmackDown, Money In The Bank takes place this coming Sunday with Raw rounding out the historic weekend on Monday.
One way or the other, this weekend promises to be an incredibly exciting one for WWE fans.
