John Cena has been out of the title picture and off SmackDown since falling short of the WWE Title at No Mercy.
It’s being reported that John Cena will likely miss the Raw vs SmackDown Live PPV Survivor Series on November 20th in Canada and there is still no word on when Cena will return to our television screens.
His absence may be a blessing in disguise as more stars have been pushed during his time off, including Baron Corbin who got a major role on the SmackDown team for the Raw vs SmackDown match at Survivor Series.
Cena’s rumored feud going into 2017 is Baron Corbin, there has been reports that Corbin is set for a push in 2017 and it looks like it’s happening sooner rather than later.
The current plan is to have Cena vs Corbin at the 2017 Royal Rumble, note that both superstar’s are still expected to take part in the Royal Rumble match itself.
