John Cena will always be a big draw and his stock is expected to be a crucial piece in helping WWE SmackDown go up. He landed with the blue brand and is obviously someone who will act as the pillar for commissioner Shane McMahon and general manager Daniel Bryan.
Unlike before however, his contributions will not come in the form of being champion. He lacks one more title reign to become a 16-time champion. But with the way things are shaping up now, Cena will pitch in by helping the other stars on the rise.
A lot of that started at the last pay-per-view, WWE Battleground. Cena was joined by the new tandem of Big Cass and Enzo Amore as they took on “The Club”. The alliance was uncanny but the obvious though many forgot to consider that it was a storyline where Big Cass, Enzo Amore and even “The Club” members Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows would get some added attention.
The third member of “The Club”, AJ Styles, didn’t really need much push and was seen something more to sweeten the matchup. With that over, who could be next for Cena to help out?
Less John Cena moving forward
Cena was part of the “Six-pack” challenge, which ultimately saw Dolph Ziggler as the last survivor. This meant that “The Showoff” will be challenging Dean Ambrose at WWE SummerSlam for the heavyweight title.
How about Cena? Right now it wouldn’t be surprising if Cena takes another hiatus. Wrestling Inc. reported that Fox’s “American Grit” has been renewed for a second season, hinting that the Cenation leader is likely to spend less time with the WWE once again.
Cena is the host and executive producer of the show and previously took two months off to attend to the show. Season 1 of “American Grit” was a success and now the many time WWE champ will have to work on season 2 to ensure it maintains its stature.
As for another WWE title, it may happen though it is unlikely to go down this year.
