The rumors have been out for a couple of weeks on plans for John Cena at WWE SummerSlam but WWE has yet to confirm that he’s returning.
As previously noted, Cena is expected back on the July 16th episode of Friday Night SmackDown to set up the main event for SummerSlam in August. WWE will be running at the Raiders home in Las Vegas and they would need at least one mega main event that might sell out a 60,000-70,000 seat stadium.
Cena was interviewed this week by Tara Hitchcock as part of his media tour to promote F9. Hitchock appeared to catch him off guard when she asked what he would be doing on August 21st, which happens to be the date for SummerSlam.
She also asked him if he would be in Las Vegas. Cena danced around the answer and told her that he has a lot on his plate and he doesn’t want to raise expectations. Click here if you want spoiler news on plans for Cena at SummerSlam.
